good decision from sasaki to play for 2nd in the group. as a true nadeshiko fan, i much rather Japan stay in Cardiff as opposed to traveling all the way to Scotland and play france. GB or Brazil are much more beatable for Japan. It'll be great to see Homare on Friday at her best! My only concern is Takasi's mind today, what on earth was she doing trying to score at the end :facepalm:
