the game against Belgium, that ridiculous winning counter they took advantage of right after Honda almost scored the most ridiculous long range free kick.
This Japan team being out at the RO16 is a bit different, being finalists at the last two, winning in 2011. The fact that this is a majority young team with eyes on the Summer 2020 Olympics at home is pretty telling, they might not have shown it in the groups but they were playing a hell of a game yesterday.
Kinda had to love that stat before yesterday's game that the women coaches had won all the ro16 matches that were against a male coach.
