Royal support at the World Cup

Princess Takamado of Japan greets national soccer team star Keisuke Honda as the Samurai Blue arrive for a World Cup training session in Rustenburg, South Africa. Mr. Honda, scorer of Japan’s winner in its opening game against Cameroon, is expected to be a key figure again as the national team takes on Denmark later Wednesday, needing only a draw to progress to the last 16 in the Cup.
