TAKAKURA Asako Coach’s Comment
We are very pleased that our supporting company MS&AD Insurance Group Holdings, Inc. will sponsor our match again this year. This MS&AD Cup will function as a very important preparation match for the Asian Cup. Ghana Women’s Football Team consists players with great physical abilities and they are different from any countries that we will face in the Asian Cup. Because of their attributes this will present us with a fantastic opportunity to gain experience. This match will be broadcasted on TV and we will prepare ourselves thoroughly so that we can showcase our persistent fighting style soccer to many people.
