Coach and Player's Comment
Jose Maria PAZOS MENDEZ, Coach
Along with Iran, Japan is one of our strongest rivals in Asia. Therefore, the upcoming two matches will certainly be difficult matches. We should be able to showcase high-level matches, so I hope many fans will come to see the matches. From a young age, I have always been interested in Japanese culture and movies, which led me to study Japanese history in college. I have visited Japan five or six times already, but I am glad that I was able to come visit this beautiful country again. I am hoping to make this trip a trip to remember.
I have previously visited Japan five times with my club team. Japan is a beautiful country and I have a very positive impression. The players of the Japan Futsal National Team are very talented, and they are a very good team with great discipline. Our team’s strong point lies on our techniques and physical strengths. We will apply aggressive pressure and fight until the end. We hope to earn positive results in both of the two matches.
