    Well, nothing to say, Germany was superior. It’s FIFA ranked #2, Japan #3, and that’s correct. Germany with 6 key players missing remains monstruous. Too many Nadeshiko had a poor performance (Tanaka, Iwashimizu, Sakaguchi mainly). The rest was average, except Ogimi and Ohno. All Germans were excellent, some exceptionnal (da Mbabi, Kessler). And that’s it.
    I’ll come back later with my individual notes. I have to eat, then desperately try to find a link for France-Norway….

    Hope practice went well :):)

    Lol, well the Dutch supporters sounded great!


    It was a pretty level match, chances at both ends. Both teams should have been awarded a penalty.
