Comments of NISHINO Akira
The original task assigned to me as the Technical Director was to support the national team coach, and I feel deeply responsible for the current situation.
It is a very difficult task to undertake the position of the coach at this timing, but I have felt the need to set the priority of the team above myself to break through the current situation. I will give the utmost effort ahead of the World Cup to assemble all the power within the Japanese football community.
