Oh no. Do I hear....vuvuzelas?
Keisuke Honda scores on a rocket high to the left side of the goal!
I just don't understand why more players don't aim higher.
Honda is now Japan's top goal scorer in World Cup competition.
This match may be wet and wild.
Ivory Coast are playing well, they just can't convert. Kind of like a certain person who plays for England.
And here we go before we sleep.
Ivory Coast - sorry FIFA - now has three in back. This could get interesting.
Makoto Hasebe comes off, Yasuhito Endō on.
The different colored shoe thing is something my daughter would be into. Not that I think it's bad.
Here comes Didier Drogba! Die is off.
We are at 62 minutes. Lots of time left.
Wilfried Bony heads it in after a beautiful cross! 1-1
Gervinho scores! Another great cross. 2-1 Ivory Coast
Yoshito Okubo comes in for Yuya Osako. Japan looks flat.
Boka off with an injury, Constant Djakpa in.
Kagawa goes off, Kakitani comes in.
Four minutes of stoppage time.
This was a well-played game. Obviously Ivory Coast comes away with more, but Japan played well enough to be optimistic.
