58 days to go

Japan’s FIFA Women's World Cup™ winning coach Norio Sasaki was born on 24 May 1958, and the 56-year old, who will turn 57 just before the start of Canada 2015 is hoping to celebrate with a successful defense of the Nadeshiko's world title.

Sasaki was at the helm for Japan's maiden world championship at Germany 2011 four years ago, and he picked up the Women's World Coach of the Year honours at the 2011 FIFA Ballon d'Or Gala for his efforts.
