After playing the match against Shimizu S-Pulse  

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke after playing in the Yamazaki Nabisco Cup first quarter final against Shimizu S-pulse
We played really well and did better than our opponent during the first half of the game. As for the second half, both teams played a really intensive game. We played such a high level game. I am very much looking forward to the second leg match.
Of course, I felt upset when we lost the goal soon after the second half of the match started. Nonetheless, the match we played was a very interesting and a high level game overall. I think Shimizu S-Pulse proved that they are a good team today. As a matter of fact, they won the previous match they played in Osaka.
Having said that, we created a lot more scoring opportunities than they did throughout the match. In reality, it would have been possible for us to score one more goal and win the match today. However, as the result turned out to be the way it did, I am very much looking forward to the second leg match.
