100 Japanese schoolboys

Via this comment by Tim Newman I find the following video on James Hamilton's blog, in which a professional J-League team take on 100 schoolboys. James admires the way the pros figure out a way to overcome this unusual problem; for myself, I just find the sight of the boys charging through midfield in impossible swarms very funny.

Musing on strategies for England this summer, are we?

I spent a whole lunchtime watching this a few weeks ago. I still can't believe that goals were actually scored.

I also tried to figure out if this would work for fighting. Like, a grown adult against 100 children. Who would win?

Football seems to bring out the playful, cuddly side of the Japanese - remember that team of hair stylists they fielded in the 2002 World Cup?

They were great, werent they Gadjo? And all called things like Toto and Frodo.

The Japs and Senegalese made that tournament.
