Bring it on!



Naoyuki Tsuji is a very brave man ? or maybe he is just blinded by passion. Like many Coffs Coast residents, the patriotic Japanese national is off to the pub tonight to watch Australia take on Japan in their opening World Cup match. But unlike the majority of the crowd he won't be hoping for a Socceroos victory and he won't be dressed in green and gold. Instead he will be wearing Japan's official team shirt and cheering for an upset. While he may find himself a lone voice at the pub he is not the only Japan supporter on the Coffs Coast. Tetsuko Nichols, Kumiko Takayama, baby Yulee Chi, Asami Nago, Mayuko Nishimura and Shinobu Owen (pictured with Naoyuki) will all be having a late night as they cheer on Japan from the comfort of their homes. Let's just hope they aren't too disappointed when they lose!
