Great game against Sweden. Sweden were hard to break down and too bad Japan didn't put more chances away in the first half. It will be interesting to see what Sweden will do in the Olympics.

Frustrated because Nadeshiko couldn't get a score, though they had so many chances. Sweden was so strong at the end of the game. Hope many goals in next game against South Africa.
