We are to remain highly concentrated to score goals well   

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke on the day before the 2010 season J. League Twelfth Sec. against Vegalta Sendai.

What is a little unfortunate is that Nobuhisa Yamada is not able to accompany the team for tomorrow’s match. He has a cold now. Takahara has not been able to participate in training sessions over the past few days for the same reason. The team had very tough training this week. During such intensive training, two players were injured. Yoshiya Nishizawa will likely be away from the team for a long time. Since he strained a ligament, we are not sure when he will be able to join the team again. Sanou joined team practice today for the first time after he was injured. He injured his ankle. Considering his current condition, he will be able to accompany the team. I think he will be able to play in the match as well.

What is most important for us is to remain highly concentrated when we play in the match. I want my team players to kick the ball right into the center of the goal rather than hitting the bar or post. If we can do this, I believe we can win.
