Near total domination by Japan, but with a total lack of willingness to shoot. Three or four times they had good opportunities to strike but continued to try to pass it in. I was starting to worry that the Aussies would sneak a counter attack goal but in the end the better team won.

anywhere that hasn't been over developed for tourists gets my vote. If it's in a guide book, forget about it.

It's not the lack of English that keeps people away it's the perception of it. I visit Japan every year and even with virtually no Japanese language skill get by perfectly well. When at home and on internet forums I'm constantly bombarded with questions on how hard is it to get by in Japan. There needs to be far more done to help tourists if that is what they want.

@ albaleo - it's not hard to believe that Kim dotcom intervened and paid lizard squad off so that he could play a game.
He was the world's number one ranked call of duty player until his arrest.

As a regular visitor to Japan it's great to see the yen back to where it was years ago. I feel for those living in Japan though

it won't be sold on ebay, the seller is just looking for publicity, no way would anyone sell a multi- million dollar item with all the fees involved.

everyone in the world knows the whole process was corrupt, how else would a such a small nation that barely even plays the game gets awarded the most prestigious tournament. money talks, and the scumbags walk.
