Back in action for their second Group F match against Sweden after a sobering 13-0 loss to the USA in their opener, the Asian side came out in determined manner.

And the players took her words on board as, despite going down to a second defeat, losing 5-1, they produced a much-improved display and did have the distinction of scoring their country's first-ever World Cup goal through skipper Kanjana Sung-Ngoen to help put a smile on everyone's face at the Stade de Nice and beyond.
