Guardian blog on Asian Football

I arrived home at 7am after Japan defeated Denmark to ensure their progression to the last 16 of this year’s World Cup and, in a pique of sleep-deprived righteous indignation, pitched an article to the Guardian about the underestimation of Asian football. It seems I should work at these unsociable hours more often as they liked it and published it here:

While the team has sadly now exited the competition, the content of this blog is still very relevant and I hope that Japan’s performances in South Africa can go some way to addresing the representation of Asian football around the world.
