    FK by Japan. Miyama’s kick deflected on Ogimi, out.

    Thank you for the information and video. Shibata sounds like a schoolgirl reading textbook in a class learning English! 🙂 I first wondered who is “Asako Takemoto.” Quick investigation taught me she is the woman best known here as “Asako Takakura.” I didn’t know she married Mr. Takemoto.
