National team manager Vahid Halilhodzic declared Japan’s performance at the E-1 Football Championship a success despite missing out on the title with a 4-1 defeat to South Korea on Saturday.

“I think getting two wins at this tournament is an excellent result, but it’s OK to have a different opinion,” Halilhodzic said after leading Japan to second place at the four-team tournament, having beaten North Korea and China in its first two games.
