I was utterly impressed by Japan. I'd been half expecting the Japanese to be overrun by the sheer physicality and pace of Senegal, and braced myself for the worst. Instead, they settled pretty quickly and began to impose their game with composure and precision. The Senegal players didn't seem to able to cope with the Japanese's passing. Who would have thought to see these kinds of performances after the tumultuous and disheartening run-up? This is the Japan I want to see! Now go and beat the Poles! They are already out but can still be dangerous, so stay focused and complete the job!
