Comment from Team Manager Takafumi Hori
Though we had a very challenging match, our players ran hard and fought fiercely. I am grateful for their good performance. In addition to this, many fans and supporters came to the stadium to bolster us despite being a weekday night. I would also like to express my thanks for their great support.

Comment from Yuki Abe
As we had a draw result of 1 to 1 for our away match, it meant that if we either draw with 0 to 0 or win the match today, we would be able to go through to the next stage. As this was the case, we had aimed not to lose any goals today. We discussed among ourselves that we should play a fearless game with this in mind. Though it was not an easy match, it was great that we were able to score the first goal and managed to finish the match without losing any goals.
