  1. Ummmm their intensity must be homework & a bone ūü¶ī to chew for the technical bench while the Chipolopolo girls concentrate on the goal difference & defeating the Japanese eleven (11) in a few hours time.

  2. Ah now we know that Tu Spain will want to make sure because they know Japan is on another level. We need to fight for a 3 points. It is possible, to get six points & crush the party but Spain must fall first.
