Team Manager Mischa – press conference after the World Challenge match against Borussia Dortmund  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa after the Meiji Yasuda J. League World Challenge 2017 match against Borussia Dortmund

We unfortunately lost the match today. However, the match we played was not necessarily a bad match. As people assess Urawa Reds performance severely based on our results, we are criticized when we lose. However, I don’t think our performance during today’s match should attract harsh criticism. In my opinion, both teams pulled out a spectacular game today.

The tickets for today’s match had been completely sold out. I believe not only those who watched our match in the full stadium but also everyone who watched it on TV were able to thoroughly enjoy the match and would have been satisfied by watching the game today. We wanted to finish the match at least with a draw. Having said that, I don’t think we had a bad match but rather we played a good game today.
