It's 2-2. :)

Knowing my luck with predictions, there'll be a fifth goal coming soon. :mad:

It feels racist when my Dad says it, but that's because he pronounces it 'nips' :rolleyes:

So have Ronaldo and Messi (who are both older than him if I remember correctly).

Yeah I was confused by that. Was thinking he couldn't be that old as I always singed him on FM not that long ago but they had me thinking he was 38 or something :thdn:.

Messi is 31 today. He's a year younger than Honda, who is in turn a year younger than Ronaldo.

But they superstar players at two of the biggest clubs in the world, everyone is used to seeing them.

Honda is the only Japanese player to have scored against a team from each confederation.

2-2. Happy with a draw. Hope Poland and Colombia both fail to impress. Colombia have been poor, and Poland look directionless with Lewandowski in his slump.

3 perfect scores out of 31 (so far) ain't bad for me. (The others being CRO 2-0 NGA and IRN 0-1 ESP)

Can't really judge them based on a game with 10 men, but they haven't been impressive for the last year or so.

Yes because playing virtually the entire tournament so far with 10 men isn't going to have an effect on performances.

They've been poor in the build up too, aside from a freak win over France in March.

It's not his age that is the problem. It's the fact that the past two years Honda has been pretty terrible. There were mumbling in the press about whether to pick him for this world cup, and to be honest, if he wasn't selected there wouldn't' have been  too many people who would be fight for his case. That's why I am delighted for him to grab that goal today. His experience and skill is still bloody useful for Japan in a tournament.

There was this interview a few years ago from Japanese TV. Nakata was scheduled to go interviewed Honda, I think it was after one of the World Cup or Asian Cup. Nakata started to ask question but the interview quickly flipped around because Honda was so starstrucked and excited at the presence of Nakata that he started to ask Nakata questions and the whole thing ended up talking about Nakata's own experience in World Cup. It really shown Nakata's godlike status among the younger generation of footballers who looked up to him
