#45 Real Issues, Real Voices, Real Japan Podcast – Colin Morrison on Japan's FIFA World Cup Win vs Germany

Football freelance writer Colin Morrison joins the podcast to highlight some key moments in Japan's victory against Germany in the FIFA World Cup.



Listen in as Colin Morrison chats with the JAPAN Forward editorial team regarding the Japan national soccer team's shocking come-from-behind-win against Germany in their FIFA World Cup opener in Qatar on November 23.

Morrison attributes the win to great coaching by Hajime Moriyasu. He led Samurai Blue from a 1-0 halftime deficit into being a fiercely competitive team that would go on to win its opening match.

A combination of other factors are also articulated in the recording. For example, great goalkeeping by Shuichi Gonda and outstanding touch by Takuma Asano to complete the comeback. He also talks about Germany's defensive struggles in the podcast.
