Coach and Player's Comments
Carlos de los COBOS, Coach
The Japan National Team has many players who plays in the top leagues in Europe, and their players consists with great speed and fighting spirit. I also have the impression that their players are very positive minded, and they never give up in a match. It means a lot for us to hold this friendly match against a quality team like Japan. The match gives our young players a great opportunity to test their strengths. Following this match, the Japan National Team will enter Copa America, while we enter the CONCACAF Gold Cup, so we hope to make it a positive experience for both teams. We hope many fans of Japan will come to our match and enjoy the spectacular plays at the stadium.
This international friendly match will give us the opportunity to face the Japanese side, who are one of the best teams in the world. With this being the first match played between the two nations, I am very honoured to be a part of this match. Japan is capable of playing a dynamic style of football, so I am sure it will be a difficult match for us, but we hope to display a good performance to showcase our style of football. We hope the football fans of Japan will cheer on both teams to enjoy this big event. Of course, we are hoping to win the match.
