Japan secured a 3-1 win to advance to the next round of the World Cup 2010 with two goals from free-kicks against Denmark. The Europeans needed a win, but were undone by the set-piece strikes from Honda and Endo...
Japan is playing a lot better than I expected
They really came together for this Cup, I'm sure they'll put up a good fight against Paraguay at the least
After watching the first match against Cameroon, I thought Japan were lucky to get 3 points, because they were absolute crap at clearing the ball. But in this match, the defense was solid, they kept attacking instead of packing it in after taking the lead, and they looked DANGEROUS. Keisuke Honda is a stud at the forward spot. The touch he showed setting up the 3rd goal was better than I've ever seen out of any player on an Asian side.
