However, Japan’s performance is getting great appreciation at home. On the team’s return, the fans welcomed him very strongly. Coach Nishino says that we have written a new page of history, if not complete, half page is correct, but our future is bright.
JFA President Kos Tasima took the comments of the commentators who had questioned the coach’s strategy in the final match of the group against Poland. Then the team showed a protective game after losing a goal, because he knew that if he did not see two cards or Senegal did not stop Colombia in the other match of the group, he would reach the next round despite losing. Against Colombia playing against ten players who won a win, Japan returned twice and played 2-2 draws from Senegal.
