We were able to steal scoring opportunities from a firm defense – Team Manager Mischa  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa after the Yamazaki Nabisco Cup Preliminary League 5th Sec match against Albirex Niigata
There was no doubt that Albirex Niigata wanted to win the match in order to get to the next stage as they lost their previous match against Kashiwa Reysol. As their motivation was high, they played very aggressively from the beginning, therefore the match turned into a very difficult one.

Albirex Niigata waged attacks against us a few times by controlling the match. However, we were able to defend ourselves in critical moments and were able to avoid allowing them to create decisive situations. We managed to steal scoring opportunities from their firm defense and that is how we played the match today. I am happy that our team was able to score a goal to win the match in the end by playing as they did today.
