You mean soccer doo-doo.

Height is quite relevant in football.

The topic is football, doo-doo.

You mean American football, which is totally irrelevant here.

The Japanese players look a bit too short to compete at international level, a bit like the men's squad

Sheesh. What teams has Japan beaten in the past and what were the heights then?

Japan were Champions in 2011 and were runners-up in 2015.

Not a bad list of achievements, I'd say, for such an alleged bunch of height-challenged no-talents.

Well done for the English side, disappointing for the Japanese. Replay

Japan are a side in transition at the moment but there are some good prospects there.

So are Germany, mind you. Nevertheless, the Germans keep the bar high and yet get results. Since Takakura has been given the reins of this teams, I fail to see what she is planning to do when her team simply can't find a way to compete against the top sides when that is the bar that must be set.
