Match Commentary

95' Right, that'll do us for tonight. Tomorrow we have the final round of group games, and plenty of action to look forward to, so check out our previews of the Group G games between Portugal and Brazil as well as Ivory Coast and North Korea.
95' Denmark looked out of ideas and for many of their team, this will certainly be their last World Cup. When the moment came they just couldn't break down a much busier, more hungry team.
95' Fantastic night for Japan. They were excellent and I did them a disservice saying they were negative. They are compact when the other team have possession but they move so quickly when they have the ball, the man in possession always has options. They made Denmark look like a tired, past it unit and will certainly cause Paraguay problems if they play like that in the next stage.
