Coach Pim has shown himself to be the zen of football. He calmed Australia. Told them to expect a tough match. Then when to Japan and calmly asked why the blue samurai were training behind closed doors. We where told Australia's defences were critically depleted, and yet Grella and Chipperfield, and Moore were at their best.
Japan had the chances to win, yet their skills shone everywhere except goal bound. Coach Pim had worked his magic, again.
