We had a fast-paced fantastic match – Team Manager Mischa  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa after the J.League 30th Sec match against Kashima Antlers

We had a very fast-paced fantastic match for both teams. I thought our players’ performance was slightly better throughout the match. However, we were not able to make the most of the decisive moments we created. I believe our team only allowed Kashima Antlers defining opportunities when we lost goals. Nonetheless, our opponent team took such few chances well and got a lead on the match.

Had we been able to nail the penalty kick chance we had soon after the beginning of the first half of the match or had Marcio been able to make the decisive goal scoring opportunity shortly after the penalty kick chance, our team would have been on a very different path in the match. However, I am pleased with our players’ overall performance throughout the match today. They were able to control the match without losing their calm. I feel we were able to be one step closer again to winning the championship.
