Hi, I will be writing something up on the Asian teams for a World Cup blog and wanted to hear your thoughts on the Japanese team. Here are some aspects I would like to touch upon and would appreciate your input. 1. How would you characterize your team? 2. Team's strengths, weaknesses. 3. Will it make it to second round? 4. Little known anecdotes about the team. 5. Players to watch. Thanks in advance for your help.
