FIFA Women's WC 2007 – Do or Die Mission Against Japan

The stakes are very much for Argentina after getting off to a worse start at China 2007, suffering an 11-0 defeat at the hands of Germany. And if they are to keep their stuttering challenge alive going into the final round of group matches, then nothing less than a win against the Japanese will do. Not that Carlos BORELLO's girls will have things easy. Japan showed their willpower and tenacity by scoring deep into injury time to steal a precious point against England.
Catalina PEREZ is available for selection after serving a one-match suspension, while Celeste BARBITTA's left ankle is BORELLO's sole injury concern.

Team captain, Eva GONZALEZ says " We know Japan well. They are a fast team who play good football but are not as physical as Germany. It will be a totally different game, nothing to do with what happened in our opening match. We need to win if we want to qualify".
Argentina were on the receiving end of a 6-0 scoreline when the two sides met in the first phase at USA 2003, a one-sided contest in which Mio OTANI scored a hat-trick in only eight minutes - the fastest ever in the history of the FIFA Women's World Cup. For BORELLO and his ladies, history doesn't look like to be their favourite subject at the moment. After all the 11-0 bashing from Germany is Women's World Cup record.

Good luck Ladies!!!

The match will take place in Shanghai, 14th of September

this is funny.

Roy said...

Its as if she's TRYING to make an excuse for the loss. I took it in a way that "We lost because Germany is physical". Suddenly the 2002 World Cup for the Mens team dosn't look too bad.

Seba said...

Very different story compared to what happened to Germany, but the result was the same.

We lost 1-0 with Japan's goal coming in the 91st minute.

At least there was an improvement... Especially since having a high goal differential is what the other 3 teams want to advance. That and it was almost a tie. Considering Japan beat us 6-1 or 6-0 last WC it's a definite step up. The girls need more money and resources if they are ever going to be competitive with the better teams.

It was a defeat that is hard to swallow, especially coming at injury time. They were moments we hit the woodwork and came close on other occasions to score. But I'm going to agree with Argentinafan, this is was an improvement by the girls.

Lets face it, there is still a long way for them to go, if they were to compete in the same level as the men. So I'm not going to be to harsh of them like some people (I'm not going to mention any name, you know who you are) that I've came across lately.

The girls can take plenty of experience from this tournament considering the fact that we will play in next years Olympic after clinching the 2006 Sudamericano Femenino.

And now for an off topic update-ManU over Everton today 1-0. Vidic with a header late in the match. Carlitos had a real nice game, much involved in the offense, digging on defense and didn't miss by much on a screamer from outside the area.
Also, Ever Banega with an injured lower leg. I don't know how serious it is, but it didn't look good. The good news-not a knee.

johnny said...

Nice day for the boys at Real Madrid as Saviola and Higuain scored, and Gago involved.

Chelsea got robbed. Epa !!

Roy said...

I got robbed! I'm doing HORRIBLE in my fantasy pool(the one we're doing here). I have 5 injured players! Carr, Lehmann, Gallas, Euell and Dunne. Add that to the fact that I had Ronaldo suspended for 3 games. Oh and my goalkepper is Robinson:(

John said...

Diego MILITO scored for Real ZARAGOZA in their 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao, with both Pablo AIMAR and Andres D'ALESSANDRO in the starting line up.

Martin DEMICHELIS was also a starter in Bayern MUNCHEN 1-1 draw with Schalke 04.

johnny said...

KUN scores at 14' to put A. Madrid up over Murcia. He looked like he was still playing for the U 21's.

Boca destroys Banfield 6-0 behind 4 goals from El Caballo Loco, Martin Palermo.:)

John said...

Lucho GONZALEZ gave leaders Porto a 1-0 victory over second-placed Maritimo to make it four wins from their first four games as they moved three points clear in the Portuguese Premier League

CRESPO was on target for Inter in their 2-0 win over Catania.

Having watched the whole world cup so far, i have to say that both captain Eva Nadia Gonzalez and midfielder Fabiana Gisela Vallejos are so lovely! Especially Eva! She scored a fantastic free kick too against England, but i felt bad for the own goal. Seen many players in the men's game score similar OGs. One of those moments where a split second descision they make goes wrong. And the kung fu style high tackle on England's Vicky Exley was a bit rash, but i thought she was Argentina's best player of the 3 games? Despite the horror show at the world cup, which players are most likely to emerge as world stars in the next 3 to 4 years anyone ?

John said...

Yes, it was a bittersweet ending for our girls, especially after qualifying for the tournament in such circumstances.

The 6-1 defeat against England proves that our girls still have a long way to go.

It's hard to tell from results like this who is one for the future

Now we'll just look forward to the Olympics. Not that I'm expecting anything like our wonderful achievement in 2004. But the chance to play at such a high stage does mean everything for this girls.

All the best to them
