    Kobayashi for Miura; Yokoyama for Sugasawa.

    Bardsley for Telford; Bright for McManus; Stokes for Greenwood; Walsh for Moore; Stanway for Mead; Daly for Kirby; White for Taylor; Duggan for Parris. 8 of 11 :eek:

    With Kobyashi comming in place of Miura, I'd expect Japan to play 4-3-3 (or some 4-2-3-1 variant)

    Where is Daly playing in this lineup? Up front, on the right?

    Right side but will probably switch with Duggan in-game.

    Yes, the same thing I wrote on the Nadeshiko Japan thread: Kobayashi is actually a FW and the only Holding Midfielder is this line-up is Hina Sugita: this suggests Takakura wanting to surprise England with an unexpected 4-3-3 (and a very offensive one at that, since both the wingers, Endo and Nakajima, can actually score goals too).

    Looks like Takakura actually wants to try to win this game. :ninja:

    Sorry, people, but I guess I'll follow this game more on the Nadeshiko Japan thread than here. I see that @Gilmoy opened these threads early, lest I beat him in making them as it happened yesterday! :p

    Same here. I prefer a draw, sorry :oops: But if Nadeshiko win I will not complain, of course.

    05' 0-0 Iwabuchi(?) pings a give-and-go pass behind Bright to Yokoyama at 22m arc top. Yokoyama oddly cuts inside right into Bright's zone, shoots long, wide right.

    07' 0-0 White receives facing away at 11m 6-right, gets swarmed 1-v-6 and still digs ball away for one more touch, Japan clear.

    09' 0-0 Yokoyama fk at 27m left post, driven to left 90 going in, Bardsley flies and pushes it over bar.

    10' 0-0 Japan instant counter from 30m, pass to Iwabuchi(?) at arc top wide left, early ground cross rolls to 6-top right post behind England's high back line and too far for the attackers, Bardsley dives and catches.

    11' 0-0 England are pinned in their own 1/3. Japan lurk with 6 past midfield, congesting all passing lanes. Stokes misses a long pass up wide left. Japan go up their left, lose it out.

    14' 0-1 Stanway spins past Sugita's shoulder-lean at circle top mid-left, rides her challenge to 30m mid-left, kicks right outstep ground pass through box top mid-left. White back-cuts Kumagai caught too high and not sprinting, chases to 10m 10-left. Yamashita charges out to 8m, White passes left instep under her left hand, medium roller outpaces Ichise, skips into right bottom pipe.

    Yokoyama needs to learn passing into a player's path, not straight at a player.:coffee:

    Has someone told Takakura that she can wear glasses? I thought she had a better record with those.

    41' 0-1 Yokoyama kicks right outstep from arc top, wide right low.

    HT 0-1. Japan 5(2)-(4)8 shots(sog), 2-5 corners, 1-6 fouls, 6-16 tackles, 17-24 clearances, 47% possession, 80% (169/212) - (209/247) 85% :eek: passing. So England are doing more defending ... but they're outpassing Japan :notworthy:
