Honda scores against Denmark on a freekick. The goalkeep saw the ball and took a step to his left. Turns out he was fooled as the ball took an unexpected trajectory; the goalkeep reacted but that one false step slowed him just enough.

Apparently it's not the first time Honda pulls that trick. If the Danes had only done some youtube scouting.


(Usually freekicks curls inwards and downwards. Honda's freekick floats outwards.)

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

Watching the video wouldn't have helped. He was a blond today.



....Actually both free kicks (as well as Honda's awesome move and very generous assist) in the 3-0 game were incredible.

I thought the Japanese play was some of the best I've seen all tournament. Fluid, fast, attacking play. Strong defence and a real team approach to the game. Some of the ball control was incredible.

I watched their games against Cameroon and Denmark. Honda's play on that last goal was beautiful, and their two free kicks were brilliant, but otherwise it was alright. They didn't necessarily outplay the Danes other than the free kicks. Remember Denmark pretty much gave up on defending (to press up and try to score 3 goals) so it was unusually easy on Japan's offense. I was more impressed by their defence than (live ball) offense.

Only one defender blocking the shot at that distance? That's madness!

It was 3-1. Denmark scored on a penalty putback, not very memorable.

Not sure what I was thinking . . . . maybe a subconscious protest against the dive that drew the penalty kick. whistle

I was thinking E. Honda beating Denmark for some reason. I think that there is a dutch fighter in the SF universe.
