OK, the Blue samurais, fight harder the next match! Shoot more, more strongly, and on target. And don't forget NOT to commit fouls inside the penalty area. You will win, I believe.

If he hadn't scored himself in the last game , he wasn't going to demand such thing!!

"“I want to give them the opportunity to change their mindset. I have to pull the team forward when it needs pulling, and it’s not just me."

Well, Honda, it's just you saying it, bud.

The arrogance of this fool. Despite scoring Japan's only goal against the UAE, the fact remains that they should have won easily, and he was on that team that lost. Maybe he's forgetting that, or else just misdirecting his anger, as usual.

Just think how much more Honda could achieve if he didn't spend so much time dealing with his hair.

Young players sometimes need pushing, and Honda, as one of the key senior members of the team, provided them with the needed impetus at the right moment. He was talented enough to join one of the best teams in Europe, and he has been consistently one of the best forwards Japan has had in the past ten years. He has achieved more than enough to earn his high stature, which simply cannot be disparaged by all these low aspersions shooting up at him.
