Actually I think they were generally outplayed and Kawashima saved their butts to a great extent.The Aussies were very disappointing in front of goal and that solitary goal was a screamer.Happy to lose to a good team in open play.I was dreading penalties.So congrats Japan!Looking forward to more contests like this.

That was quite a spectacular goal. And well deserved; for most of the time, the boys in blue dominated the game.

Sour grapes in this house! Have the day off so I am allowed to sulk today. Well done to the Japanese - tactical switching by Zaccheroni a master stroke.

Great goal to win it also thought the aussie captain Lucas Neill was classy shaking all the japanese players hands striaght after the final whistle.Guess he will retire now but hi was a class act

KEEP that positive attitude and the rest is history, and a great future for Japanese football congrats.

Just after the victory, Nagatomo emailed a footballer/newscaster saying "We have a long way to go" ("Mada Mada Desu").

Keep that actively negative attitude and the rest will be history.

And make Nagamoto a forward.
