But after the freak goal, the Nippons settled in and started playing pretty passes in midfield. Their midfield is really good but the two pieces of monkey dung up front wasted every single chance.
And so the Japanese defence and midfielders had to work doubly hard, burning out in the end and conceding 3 soft goals right in the final stages of the game. To think the Japs had so many chances to kill off the tie too. Bah! Useless. Also, there were more Australians than Japanese with black hair. Half the Japanese team had Mohawks or rooster cuts. And the utterly shite Yanagisawa also happens to be a handsome pretty boy. Girls do look out for him.
On a side note, Australia are officially the roughest team in the world. Following through their sliding tackles to take away the opponents’ legs, hacking people from behind, pushing and shoving etc. They need to be shown some Sumo power.
Tim Cahill of Everton scored 1 scrappy goal that tied the game and another great finish from the edge of the penalty box. He’s the man. The last goal was scored by Jon Aloisi who looks A LOT like that steam train guy from Eyeshield 21. Even scored a similar goal too.
So in short, Japan lost and I’m gutted. Now I’ll have to hope Korea wins. Both Asian teams so far lost 3-1. Looks like we won’t be seeing the 2002 WC repeat itself.
