Neither team is forcing the issue so far...
She just cleared one ball because of high press from GB, done well actually as everyone was covered, relax ))
Nicely worked action with Shiokoshi having lots of space on the wing
Britain have the wind in their sails right now. I wish to see more urgency from our Nadeshiko in those 1v1 challenges. It's a battle of trenches; gotta go at them.
edit: as I wrote this, Nadeshiko are pushing forward now.
Well, luckily we're not the only team sending balls directly into touch; GB can play this game for us too!
I see Japan much more fluid today in attack, that's a good sign for me.
Damn it. We had someone in a better position to shoot after the turnover that Tanaka provoked.
Argh, Hayashi's third shot was stopped by a DF: how with my prediction???
Reminder to get the medal alternate player has to be at least once in 18 players match squad.
Yellow card against Hayashi, but I'm OK with those professional fouls. Had to stop them regardless.
This YC to Hayashi looked questionable to me.
Argh! You had to hit the target, Tanaka!
Bibiana Steinhaus is on VAR - don't expect overturning too many wrong calls
How can Japan is playing better without their best player, I don't understand.
Yawn! Wake me up the day when Tanaka will actually be able to frame a shot on the international stage.
Between her and Stéphane Guivarc'h (France, 1998), I sometimes don't know who is worse at not being able to hit a barn door in a big tournament.
edit: Guivarc'h was notorious for messing up 3 big scoring chances in the 1998 World Cup final against brazil.
I thought I saw that Mana has a bandage on her knee
Why no YC for Parris crashing on Miyagawa?
On the other hand, I've got the feeling that eventually one of our middle-range shots will have to go in: we're clearly playing into this kind of strategy.
Please, no! We're going to need her!
(On the other hand, this explains her otherwise unexplainable absence).
that referee sometimes.
Wow, Sugita is everywhere on the pitch!
This makes even more of a head-scratcher why she wasn't started vs Canada and she was just a late sub instead.
Iwabuchi warming up.... That bandage on her knee looks....intense
HT 0-0. Well, we're not playing bad at all.
Before the game I said that a draw was within our reach and the pitch is basically saying the same (it could end being one of those groups with three teams ending at 5 points and everything being decided by who pummels Chile the most), but I'd frankly wouldn't see it impossible to win this one in 2nd Half.
Good first half for Japan, so much better than first day. I like Sugita and Hayashi a lot in first half. If Mana can enter, this could get better.
