Hiroshi Ohashi, Japan coach
We started off very well but made life difficult for ourselves by not scoring. I spoke to the players at half-time and told them to move around more whenever we were in possession. The goal just wouldn't come, though - we changed the system around and still couldn't score, but we never gave up and that's why we eventually got our reward in the last minute.
