Referee Crew's Comment
We are grateful for all the support and warm hospitality provided by JFA. I am always inspired by the wonderful culture and kind people of Japan, which makes me think of Japan as my home away from home.
We believe that this match between the Japan National Team and U-24 Japan National Team is an important match for both sides. We are hoping that this match and the match against Serbia will both be a wonderful match. We pray for the success of everyone involved in the match.
