  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Denmark Coach Morten Olsen: The way the whole match progressed was decided on the two set pieces when they scored the two goals. We knew which two players were going to take the free-kicks. We prepared, but it didn't help. They took their chances, we didn't take ours and it became an uphill struggle for us. The way the whole match evolved was decided by the two free-kicks in the first half.

    • Japan Coach Takeshi Okada: Our team has a strength that others don't have. We are truly united. We wanted to demonstrate that football is a team sport. This was our first objective (to reach the second round) so I am relieved. The players kept going until the end without losing their focus. I am proud to be with such a great bunch of players.

    • Japan Midfielder and Man of the Match Keisuke Honda: For Japan it's a big win. I'm glad we won but I am not satisfied. The next game is more important. I want to show the Japanese that nothing is impossible. Prior to the match, the coach said we shouldn't concentrate on the defense and that we should attack, That's what the coach told the players to boost our motivation. It was really effective and led to this wonderful result.
