Coach and Player's Comments
Dennis LAWRENCE, Coach
First of all, I am grateful to be given such wonderful opportunity. I know this is a very important match for Japan, but with the Gold Cup scheduled ahead of us, it will serve as a crucial match for us as well. The Japanese team consists with many players with great individual techniques and they are a fantastic team. In order to showcase a wonderful match against the Japan National Team, I need my players to play tough. Starting from tomorrow, we hope to put in a good training session so that we can get ourselves ready for the match on the 5th.
It was a long flight, so I am feeling very tired, but I would like to thank the JFA and all the staffs for preparing us with a wonderful environment and warm hospitality. In order to heighten the team quality ahead of the match against Japan, we will take a good rest today and prepare our conditions so that we can conduct quality training sessions from tomorrow.
