Japan x Australia

This was the first match in the group of Brazil.
To me, the worst match so far in the Cup.
The Brazilian media considered Japan to be the favorite for this match. Players like Nakata and Nakamura are somewhat famous, Japan had a good performance in the last Cup, Japan is coached by Zico, Japan had some good results recently (such as the tie with Germany, two weeks ago).
Australia, on the other hand, had participated of only one World Cup (1974), and had not even scored a goal.

Both teams showed an absolute lack of individual skills.
Brazilians are even more confident now.
