We will continue to fight with confidence-Team Manager Petrovic  

Looking back at the team’s overall performance, I thought they did particularly well during the first half of the match today. They were able to keep the ball in their possession and made good combination attacks. It was good to see each member of the team perform with such good speed.
I should also note that Despotvic scored two goals today. He scored a goal in a previous Yamazaki Nabisco Cup match against Montedio Yamagata as well. I am very glad that he started to score goals. I am looking forward to seeing him score more goals in forthcoming league matches.
During the second half of the match, since there was much space behind our opponent players, it would have been good if we could have utilized the space more effectively. Nonetheless, winning the match today gave a big confidence boost for us to continue to fight through. After all, we need good strikers who can score goals at the front line. Since Despotvic scored 2 points today, I am very happy for him. I hope to see him score 10 or more goals with confidence in the league matches from now.
