Congratulations Nadeshiko. Well-played. It's good to have a new name on the Women's World Cup. 6 World Cups and 4 different teams winning the trophy. Commiserations to the USA. Enjoy your success and looking forward to the Matildas playing Japan in September for qualification to the 2012 London Olympics. Go Matildas !!!

Both teams played well. It would be nice to give each of them credit. Let's not always talk about disasters. Japan got the win not because they had a hard time in the past year. USA have had hard times as well economically. So congratulations to Japan and two tums up to the USA great team spirit and great sportswoman ship. ;)

As a total USA supporter, I admit, I am broken-hearted. USA and Japan were fairly even sides, as was shown in most of the match,but Japan did what they do best and kept a cool head, which is why they beat us so badly in PK's. PK's were the downfall of my would-be champions, but they deserved that. They really blew the kicks. I am happy for Japan and the happiness they bring for their country, because they deserve that. USA keep your heads up! Millions of girls, including me, still look up to you! Olympics is ours!

Congrats to Japan! You classy ladies deserve it.

Deserving world champions JAPAN, it would have been a footballing injustice had USA won, apart from physical strenght, they did not bring anything to the game we all love. Japan brought respect, dignity, skill and a never say die attitude, hence they are deserving world champions.

Bravo Japan! Your hard work commitment and never-say-die attitude paid off! Of course a little bit of luck helps as well and why should only the Americans have the hog's share of it. Japan truly deserved it based on their work ethic and skill level. SIZE isn't everything, after all the best male player (Lionel Messi) in the world is shorter than some of those American women player. Football when the skill level is high is the great equalizer in this game.
