Match Highlights

Quotes

"We controlled the game by playing out from a strong defence. The Netherlands pushed forward quickly, and we’ve got great respect for that. Australia are technically strong. We’ve never lost to them since I’ve been coach, but they have immense potential nonetheless."
Norio Sasaki, Japan coach
