We scored a very meaningful three points-Team Manager Petrovic  

Comment from Team Manager Petrovic after the J. League 21st Sec match against Albirex Niigata

The three points we scored today are very meaningful three points for us. During the first half of the match, the team performed near to perfect and gave almost no opportunity to our opponent. In the second half, though the team should have made sure to control the match in reality, they ended up giving an opportunity for the opponent to score one point during the penalty kick.
However, thanks to the fantastic goal made by Naoki Yamada, we led the match with the score of 3 to 1 after that. But, our opponent scored another goal at the very last minute during the penalty kick. Though the match ended awkwardly, since our team was able to score three points by winning the match, we gained further momentum to finish the rest of the season in good spirits. It was also great that the assistant referee confirmed that Despotovic did not touch the ball at all.
