    Maybe is time for Kumi to enter as a supersub.

    I find it amazing that so many "good" strikers fail to keep the ball down on so many shots. If you don't hit the goal you cannot score!

    HT 1-1. Avista (local power company) subs in a new transformer! Took only 45 minutes, pretty fast.

    54' 1-1 Iwabuchi turns upfield at 35m mid-left, dribbles 1-v-4, turns van der Gragt twice but never gets past her, finally she touches it too far and Groenen slide-hooks ball away. This Italian pbp calls her "groo-nen", boo :p (correct is "hroo-nen")

    55' 1-1 Miura chest-bumps Groenen down at circle back, foul.

    56' 1-1 van Dongen long cross from 27m wide left to 9m 6-right, it drops over Ichise(?)'s head and bounces untouched, up into van de Sanden's right arm? She wasn't expecting it.

    I was about to say the same. Sugasawa met her expiry time, I'm afraid.

    Good move by the Dutch but poor final ball.

    The match is VERY spread out vertically right now. While that would seem to favor the Dutch in this case I think it is more to Japan's favor.

    57' 1-1 Iwabuchi creeps to arc top left, 1-v-1 on Bloodworth. Square pass right to Sugita(?), she taps right to Sugasawa to arc tangent left, with a clear lane up centerline. Sugasawa shoots long, medium power high over bar.

    60' 1-1 Nakajima spins to 17m mid-right, fends off Bloodworth(?) with right forearm, underhits a left outstep pass to arc left, intercepted.

    Wow! Nice shot from distance and an even better save by the Dutch goalie.

    That was really good for both. I particularly liked the rebound control from the Dutch keeper.

    62' 1-1 Miedema drags ball amidst 4 through arc tangent left, finally rolls a pass through 15m center for van de Sanden, but she's momentarily wrong-footed and can't pounce. Netherlands cross to 9m right post, van de Sanden comes back and heads a bloop to 3m 1/5 right, it bounces to Yamashita.

    63' 1-1 Sugasawa taps back to Nakajima, she cuts inside to 24m mid-left, shoots left instep bend over the high line down to 1/4 left low, van Veenendaal dives and blocks leftward.

    That doesn't look good for Jackie Groenen. The right ankle took a bend just when the sliding Japanese midfielder went crashing into her.

    edit: It looks like she will give herself a go. I thought she would be out after that.

    My 10 year old granddaughter just ran out of the room. She had a similar sprain a few weeks back and could not stand to see that. She is a chatterbox but she also has a high capacity for feeling other's pain. She's a natural empath.

    At least Beerensteyn is on; van de Sanden has been poor this tournament.

    Should this go to extra time I think Japan has the advantage. They seem to be moving better right now and the extra sub will help them more that it will the Dutch.

    Sugasawa giving the ball away again... What are they waiting for to take her off? She's clearly knackered.

    68' 1-1 Iwabuchi chest-traps through arc left, dribbles to 5m mid-left amidst 3. Backheel to Hasegawa at 10m mid-left, she touches to 8m 6-left and shoots right foot across mouth, just wide right low with van Veenendaal beaten.
