The last 30 minutes of our performance was what Urawa Reds’s soccer is all about.  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa after the J. League 6th Sec match against Vegalta Sendai

To be honest with you, I was not happy with how the match panned out during the first half. The team was not able to pick up its tempo and their ball passes were weak, not to mention they made many mistakes. Their goal and attack formations were good but the tempo of the match was slow. The team started the second half of the match just like they did when they played against Vissel Kobe. Who knows what would have happened if our opponent team caught up with us by scoring a goal. After leading the match for a while, our team started to control the ball by putting pressure on the opponent team from the front rather than retreating behind for the remaining 30 minutes of the match. I think this approach worked out well and led to more goals. If we can steal the ball from our opponent at a shorter distance from the goal, we can create a dangerous formation. This was how we performed during the last 30 minutes of the second half of the match and this showed our team’s strength and aggressiveness. I am not saying that our team’s performance for the first 60 minutes was bad but it was not the type of soccer we aim to play. The last 30 minutes of our performance was what Urawa Reds’s soccer is all about. Our soccer is the type of soccer players try to score successive numbers of goals after the first goal.
