Team Manager Mischa and Captain Abe attend official interview session the day before the match against Western Sydney Wanderers FC  

An official AFC Champions League (ACL) 2017 pre-match interview session was held at Campbelltown Sports Stadium on the 20th February ahead of the following day’s group stage MD1 match against Western Sydney Wanderers FC. Urawa Reds Team Manager Mischa and Captain Yuki Abe attended the interview session to express their excitement and determination for the upcoming match.

Comment from Team Manager Mischa
Teams playing for the ACL come as leading teams representing their countries. They are all strong teams. I saw the Sydney derby match played over the last weekend on TV and the match was fantastic. Western Sydney Wonderers played so well and the match showed us what a great condition the Wonderers is in. I expect a very tough match ahead of us tomorrow. It won’t be an easy match as we will play against a very formidable team. Having said that, we didn’t come to Australia for no reason. We came here to play a good match to seize victory. We will play the match tomorrow with a strong determination to win.

Comment from Captain Yuki Abe
As the math we will play tomorrow will be our first ACL match, I can feel the weight of the first match. It will be a very important match. As the first match result will be very critical and have a big impact on the results of the ensuing group stage matches, we will give all we have got to the match to win tomorrow. We have a number of matches to play over the next two weeks but I consider ourselves lucky. As we fight through the series of matches ahead of us, we can progress through to the next round. For this reason, we will do our best to have a great step forward tomorrow.
