NATIONAL women's coach was happy that his side managed to stop Japan from going to town on a scoring spree.
Analysing their performance in their first match, national coach Shaun Corrie was impressed with his goalkeeper Susana Mudunatagi who managed to stop some of Japan's opportunities to score.
The team's defence line stood out during the 70 minute match.
Captain Melba Nautu, Soko Salaniqiqi and Emi Nawaqakuta provided a solid defence line."
Corrie said his girls did very well despite not scoring against Japan.
Considering that the Japanese side were ranked 9th in the world, Corrie said his team defended well and Japan did not have their ways.
This was after Japanese coach Yoo Seung Jin said that her side were capable of scoring more than 14-0.
Jin said that her side was also young but she knew that they could have done a lot better.
Corrie said that if they were able to stop Japan at 14 goals only, they had the potential to do a lot better.
"The Japanese were strong structured, but they didn't have their ways all the time," he said.
