"The Volvo Winners Cup: Sweden 0-1 Japan: The Nadeshiko Japan won a narrow victory over Sweden's national team. The only goal of the game came from Japan's striker Yuki Nagasato, who currently plays as a forward for 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam, the reigning German champions. It seems that Homare Sawa, who has won the 2011 FIFA Ballon d'Or, was not yet in excellent physical condition. In this game, the Swedish team, which has the ace striker Lotta Schelin, seemed to repeatedly miss their opportunities to shoot a goal. I don't think the Nadeshiko Japan were a possession-oriented team in this tournament, the Volvo Winners Cup. Most of their passing was not crisp but sloppy. To make bad things worse, after the game against Sweden, it was found out that Rumi Utugi, who now plays for Montpellier HSC Ladies, had received an MCL injury to her right knee during the game between the USA and Japan. Consequently, Rumi Utsugi will be unable to make the Japanese 2012 Olympic squad."
