Team Manager Hori – press conference after the Emperor's Cup match against Kashima Antlers  

Comment from Team Manager Hori after the 97th Emperor's Cup All Japan Football Championship 4th round match against Kashima Antlers

We made the match difficult for ourselves as we lost a goal at the start of both first and second half of the match. Our players had managed to catch up with our opponent team from two goals behind. However, we were lacking in our ability to move the game forward positively including myself not being able to give our players clear instructions. Despite this, our players had created a few more opportunities without giving up on themselves until the last moment. We need to work on how we can make the most of those opportunities we create as well as analyze why we lost several goals so that we don’t repeat the same mistakes in the future.
