but we can park a Ferrari and counter quickly
We can play Nishino/Kazama style and win matches by 3-2, 4-3, etc.
I remeber we parked the bus against Holland pretty effectively. What do you think we can do to be as good defensively as in the match against Holland and Paraguay?
I dont think we were good defensively in a match against Holland. That first goal was horror show
Takeshi Okada takes on advisory role at Deloitte Consulting Japan.
We were good defensively against Paraguay though. Any way you think Japan can repeat such a defensive performance again?
But Japan didn't "park the bus" against Holland....
Ok, what I mean was that how can Japan repeat their defensive performance in the last world cup this year?
just hope that we score more goals
Don't really like this plan...
Anyway, there might be friendlies against Costa Rica and Honduras in May/June
A New Zealand side with a youthful look will meet 2014 FIFA World Cup-bound Japan after the All Whites squad to face the Samurai Blue in March was named on Tuesday.

May 27th against Cyprus @Saisuta
Why don't the JFA schedule friendlies against sides like Chile,USA, etc.?
why do you ask so many questions somebody could ask that as well...
However, i'm a bit disappointed by this choice.
But I believe we might play vs USA or Nigeria just after the game against Costa Rica.
Hope so. It would mean that at least it's 4 matches instead of the initial 2...
Cyprus = automatic win before the WC. That's the point.
Cyprus is a test for the Greece match in World Cup.
I don't mind too much if they play not so tough opponents at the final home match.
If Japan play Costa Rica at home that would be a nice send-off game. Or would the Costa Rica match be played once in camp?
Once abroad hopefully a few quality games will be scheduled. Surely Russia would be keen for a game.
I don't know enough about Greece & Cyprus' style of play, maybe that's why it was scheduled if they're similar.
Costa Rica will be in Miami. A lot of teams are setting up camp there so hopefully we'll hear about some others.
Not that CR are pushovers. They beat the US and Mexico in the final round of WCQs and finished 2nd in CONCACAF.
I prefer that the JNT lose a friendly before the WC. It helped them in the 2010 WC, in 2006, they drew against Germany in a friendly and went out in the group stages.
i'm sure it's not hard to find an example of a team winning a warmup match and then doing well at the world cup.
Have you heard about superstition before? That was what I am referring to btw.
superstition is stupid
