We had 78% possession in the first half and deservedly took the lead. In a phase in which we were superior, we had a lot of chances to score, but we didn’t take them. Japan beat us with efficiency today.

The individual mistakes that we made in the second half must not happen to us. We need to build up the players now. We won’t have a nice trip home.
