Let's hope she has lightning quick reflexes to go with her spindliness.

Nadeshiko=lovable, caressable girl (according to the app Kotoba!)

In slightly more progressive countries, they have mived beyond this BS naming female athletes after cute and delicate flowers and colors. Oh, dang just remebered they boys are called "Samurai Blue" aren't they?!

Nadeshiko and Samurai Blue... Help me.

Why they had not done it earlier? Everybody knows goalkeepers need to be tall... For the London Olympic Games it may be too late...she would lack preparation and experience. Anyway, I'm looking forward to seein Nadeshiko in the Final, against Brazil, preferably.
