Match Report

U-23 Japan Women’s National Team, who were on trip in Spain, participated in the La Manga International Women's U-23 Tournament and played against the U-23 Sweden Women’s National Team.

The game kicked off at 18:00. Japan took the initiative from the beginning against an opponent, who was physically bigger and stronger. After 13 minutes, although the midfielder NAOMOTO Hikaru ran towards a through ball from the defender YOSHIMI Natsuki, it was ruled offside. Japan struggled to take shots against the opponent’s solid defence.

In the 36th minute, NAOMOTO passed the ball to the defender MIYAKE Shiori on the left side, where she dribbled up to send a cross in front of the goal. The forward INOUE Ayaka, who reacted to the ball, finally struck the opener.

In the second half, after the midfielder TANAKA Yoko and the midfielder OYA Ayumi came off the bench, Japan started to attack aggressively from both sides. After 68 minutes, the midfielder CHIBA Sonoko reacted to a return ball from OYA, and built a two-goal lead. During injury time, although TANAKA ran towards a pass from Oya, who had intercepted the ball, and faced the goalkeeper 1-on-1, the shot was stopped by a superb save. Japan won the game 2-0.
