On Wednesday 10 October, the U-18 Japan Women's Futsal National Team played their second group stage match of the 3rd Youth Olympic Futsal Tournament Buenos Aires 2018, and won against the U-18 Chile Women's Futsal National Team 4-1.
Two days after their first group stage match against Cameroon, the team faced Chile in their second match where a win can put them in commanding position to advance through the group stage. The match started with the Chilean side dropping deep to defend against the Japanese side who showed an aggressive approach to take the initiative. Japan struck the first goal in the 13th minute when MIYAMOTO Mai captured the goal, but soon conceded the equaliser in the 17th minute, when their opponent’s goalkeeper struck a long ball directly into the net.
Despite conceding the goal in an unfortunate fashion, Japan managed to find their rhythm in the second half, as they rallied with multiple goals. Japan regained their lead with MAEDA Miu’s 23rd minute goal from a corner kick, followed by ARAI Ichika’s first goal of the tournament scored in the 27th minute. An own goal extended Japan’s lead in the 33rd minute, as the match ended with a final score of 4-1. As a result, Japan marked consecutive victories in the group stage.
Japan will now face the U-18 Dominican Republic Women's Futsal National Team in their third match of the group stage with the advancement into the final round at stake. The match is scheduled on Thursday 11 October with a kick-off time of 14:00 local time.
FP #4 MAEDA Miu (Fukui Maruoka RUCK)
I am glad we managed to win the match today, and I am also happy to score goals in back-to-back matches. However, there were numbers of scenes where I should have scored, so I still need to improve on my finishing touches. We will be facing another match tomorrow, but we will give our best to earn three points.
FP #6 ARAI Ichika (Fukui Maruoka RUCK)
In our previous match against Cameroon, I failed to convert some critical chances, so I am glad I managed to score and assist a goal each in today’s match against Chile. We managed to showcase what we have worked on during yesterday’s training session. We will continue to give our best tomorrow, when we face Dominican Republic.
