U-20 Japan National Team departs to Poland ahead of the FIFA U-20 World Cup Poland 2019

On Monday 14 May, the U-20 Japan National Team departed Japan to make their ways to Poland for the FIFA U-20 World Cup Poland 2019.

The U-20 Japan National Team first flew to Helsinki, Finland on an aircraft of their supporting company, Japan Airlines, then connected with another flight to arrive in Poland. Upon their departure from Japan, the staffs of Japan Airlines, media staffs, and regular users of the airport gathered at the departure gate to hold a warm ceremony and see off the players and staffs of the U-20 Japan National Team.

During their flight, the players took the utmost care and attention on their sleep schedule and meals to adjust to the time difference, as well as to maintain their health conditions.

Coach and Players' Comments

Coach KAGEYAMA Masanaga
Once we arrive to Poland, we will be busy preparing for the tournament, but for now, we will relax and conserve our energy while flying with JAL. We will give our utmost efforts to meet everyone’s expectations.

DF #17 MIKUNI Kenedeiebusu (Avispa Fukuoka)
I am so excited to play at the world’s top stage. Once we arrive to Poland, we will work on the tasks we found out during the training camp in Chiba and make the necessary adjustments. Personally, I will work hard to earn a spot in the starting line-up and give my best efforts to help the team win through the group stage. We hope we can deliver great news back to Japan.

MF #10 SAITO Mitsuki (Shonan Bellmare)
We are very grateful for this wonderful ceremony. As a team, we are striving to bring back great results from this tournament, and we truly thank you for all the support.
