Honda Keisuke Man Of The Match! Great job, he totally deserved it! Japan played well, but they didn't win, and had a sad lose with penalty shots. I thought they were going to win, but I guess they were unlucky this time.

Just I wonder why that judge missed so many obvious faults from paraguay but didn't miss any small faults from japan.. If he did it to break japan's attacking, I have to admit that nobody could do it better than he did. 4 yellow cards for japanese team.. it seems like they played super dirty and dangerously, doesn't it?
