Three goals in the opening 20 minutes have ended our young Nadeshiko's dream of home final at the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup. However, they played evenly in the second half. Next match will be the last game in this member for them. I hope that pleas do not get despondent !and try to win the bronze medal with their fresh play !

Germany team was very strong. And the result was reasonable, regardless of the development of the game. I think even this generation, Germany is the best teams in the world. Japan U-20 team will need to gain more experience. Then, Germany did not participate in the Olympic Games. It was lucky for the USA and Japan.
