A quick note today to wrap up the World Cup coverage on Japan. I watched the game last night and bit my nails watching Japan suffer a heartbreaking loss to Paraguay, loosing by penalty kicks. It was Komano’s kick that missed the goal, and I just hope this talented player is not holding the responsibility too heavy on his shoulders. The scenes of Japanese fans crying, the players crying…it was all too much. It was truly heartbreaking!
As much as I wanted Japan to move at least one more level up, I have to say that they had an amazing tournament and have made vast improvements in skill from 2006. It’s never fun to end your run on penalty kicks, but that’s soccer and that’s the way it goes. I think they did an amazing job this year.
Again a big thank you to the boys in blue for a great and exciting run. I can’t wait for 2014!!! I’m proud to cheer for Japan and the Samurai Blue!!!
