    That was the Best game so far. .. Unbelievable 1st Touch Skill by the Japanese... The Dutch adjusted wonderfully in the 2nd half and almost succeeded in throwing the Japanese off their game, with Tight Person-to-Person marking and Long Counter Pass and Dribbles... Excellent Skill from both teams, Open Back and Forth attacking Soccer...In the end, The Tiki-Taka of the Japanese won the day...

    Interesting that the only effect that the TURF had on this game, was the Strange Bounce on the Dutch Goal... Japanese Goalie was Baffeled, went right Off/Past her...

    Predictions; ???... Ger(2)-France(3)...USA(1)-China(0)...Canada(1)-England(0)...Australia(1)-Japan(0)
