She didn't have anywhere near the influence as against England. A lot of Japan's good play came down here side.
Poor clearing header in the build up to the first goal and then conceded the penalty, albeit harshly, for the second.
Played in a defence which was too deep. Turned her back on the opening goal. Would have stopped it if she stood straight.
A strong showing down the left. Tried to push forward and held her own defensively.
Offered very little in an attacking sense.
Regarded as one of the best in the world but failed to show that as Japan overran Scotland in the midfield. Rarely got her foot on the ball and settled the Scots.
Largely anonymous. Not suited to chasing around nimble Japanese attackers.
Tried to burst forward to support but was too often on the back foot.
A struggle. Isolated and spent most of the time watching the game as opposed to being involved.
On the periphery for long spells but by far Scotland's most dangerous player. When she got on the ball she tended to get the team right up the pitch,
Dropped to the bench but when she came on it was as if she had a point to prove. Really positive.
On and made a difference. Scored an excellent goal.
On late.
