Japan's new dawn under Aguirre

The former Mexico boss replaces Italian Alberto Zaccheroni, who resigned earlier this month after failing to guide the Blue Samurai into the knockout stages of the World Cup in Brazil.

It is a long flight from Brazil to Japan and that gave the national team plenty of time to contemplate what had gone wrong at the World Cup; to come with myriad dreams, only to return with a solitary point. The warm welcome given by waiting fans at Tokyo's Narita Airport was better than the hail of candy and other insults that met South Korea's squad not that far away in Seoul but still, the players didn't really know to where to look.

Even before Japan arrived in Brazil in June with Keisuke Honda...

10 reasons why Asia failed at the World Cup

Carlos Queiroz left his post as Iran manager following his side's exit in the group stages while other Asian clubs struggled this summer.

A look at why Asia struggled as a whole at this World Cup...

Lack of leadership

When Korean coach Hong Myung-bo went to Netherlands to visit Park Ji-sung in March, he wasn't there to scout potential latter stage opposition but to persuade the PSV Eindhoven man to return from international retirement. "This young team needs a veteran," said Hong. Park's knackered knees knocked that idea on the head but it was clear that Korea missed the experience and leadership of such a star. Japan also didn't...

Assessment: Japan left disappointed

Alberto Zaccheroni has resigned as the head coach of Japan.

Japan will leave their fifth World Cup at the group stages and ESPNFC's John Duerden looks back at their campaign.

One sentence, World Cup recap

The gap between high expectations and the realities of football on the biggest stage was bitterly disappointing.

All team assessments

Group Stage: Australia | Bosnia-Herzegovina | Cameroon | Croatia | Ecuador | England | Ghana | Honduras | Italy | Iran
Ivory Coast Japan | Portugal | Russia | South Korea | Spain
Round of 16: Algeria | Chile | Greece | Mexico
Nigeria | Switzerland | Uruguay | United States
Quarterfinals: Colombia | France | Belgium | Costa Rica
Semifinals: Brazil | Netherlands
Finalists: Argentina
Winners: Germany

Star Man

It certainly wasn't Shinji Kagawa, anonymous for the first game and then dropped for the second, or Keisuke Honda, despite his stunning goal early against Ivory Coast. The two full-backs Atsuto Uchida and Yuto Nagatomo had their moments,...

Finding form for their countries

Marouane Fellaini celebrates scoring against Algeria.

Every World Cup brings a number of players who found life tough with their clubs, yet with the shackles off on the international stage, they show their true, natural ability. Here is our guide to those who have banished their poor club form and replaced it with international glory in Brazil.

Marouane Fellaini [Belgium]
Club: Manchester United
Status: Lambasted in his first season at United, a shining star for Belgium. "Every time I watch Belgium play, Marouane Fellaini is the best player on the...

Same old story for beaten Japan

After losing 4-1 to Colombia on Tuesday, Japan are heading back home -- after three extremely frustrating World Cup performances -- where they are likely to receive a cold reception. The domestic press seems even more surprised and confused by the Samurai Blue's overall performance than international journalists have been.

This would be a source of great amusement, were it not for the fact that Japan will have to carry the disgrace of their winless exit for a minimum of four years. Only if they qualify...

Santos' tactics help Greece advance

If Otto Rehhagel forever goes by the moniker of "King Otto" for masterminding Greece's Euro 2004 triumph, then Fernando Santos is surely deserving of the title of "Portuguese Prince."

This was a career-defining victory for the former Benfica boss, as it was for the oft-maligned Georgios Samaras, as the two conjured up one of the great World Cup escape acts.

The former Celtic player has his critics for both club and country, but it was here that he finally delivered on years of promise. An assist...
