After playing the match against JEF United Ichihara Chiba-Team Manager Finke   

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke after playing in the J. League Twenty Eighth Sec. against JEF United Ichihara Chiba
At the end of the day, our victory today was justifiable. However, it was clear to me that our players were still suffering from their previous match defeat throughout today’s match.
Our players created many scoring opportunities especially during the second half of the game. But they were not able to make the most of those opportunities and could not score goals. As I was watching them play from outside the pitch, I was worried that our team would lose the match if they did not score any goals or if our opponent was able to score goals.
In the end, our team was able to score another goal, which made the final score of the day 2 to 1. I must say that it must have been a very meaningful and liberating goal shot for my team. After that, we finished the match with three goals in total. As for all the three goals our team scored, each scoring opportunity was created beautifully and it was this that led to the actual score. Shunki Takahashi was one of the players who scored a goal today. It must have been a great encouragement for our young players.
On a final note, I would like to say that JEF United Ichihara Chiba played well and were full of energy for the first 60 minutes of the game. I think they showed their strength of having good stamina while our team was put in difficult situations at times. However, I also suspected that their stamina would run out after a while. As a matter of fact, they started to slow down especially towards the end of the match. For this reason, our team was able to make many passing shots near the opponent’s penalty area.
All in all, I think our team deserves today’s victory.
