It's been a long time coming. It was only a matter of time, but it finally came. Japan has surpassed us, both in terms of individual quality and as a unit. The gap itself is not significant just yet as we're still within striking distance to turn things around in the coming years, but some serious changes are needed from the grassroots to the domestic league to the national team set-up. Friendly or not, losing by three goals while barely getting past the halfway line until the last 20 minutes of the game is unacceptably humiliating. Sound off.
