We are pleased to have won the match though it was challenging – Team Manager Mischa  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa after the J.League 25th Sec match against Albirex Niigata

Both teams were able to play a good game today. I knew today’s match would be another difficult one as our matches against Albirex Niigata in the past were always challenging ones. We only had two days between today’s match and our previous one. Since Urawa Red’s soccer requires players to have lots of stamina, it was difficult for us to recover from our last match and prepare ourselves well.
Albirex Niigata took great risk from the beginning of the match by playing with man-to-man defense. However, based on our past experiences, we were quite accustomed to such a play style. Considering the degree of our team’s maturity, we were one step ahead of our opponent team when both teams played a similar style.

Though both teams had the chance to win the match today, I am very pleased that we were able to fulfil the biggest goal we set out to achieve today.
