Thomas CHRISTIANSEN (Panama National Team)
Hello, people of Japan. We are looking forward for this match against the Japan National Team. Japan has shown great improvements over the recent years and many Japanese players have been thriving at the international level, so we have tremendous respect for Japan. We cannot wait for the match at Graz on the 13th.
Adalberto CARRASQUILLA (FC Cartagena/Spain)
We are grateful to be given this opportunity to face the Japan National Team. Japan is a team with great international experience, and we are expecting a very tough match. I currently play at Spain, where Kubo plays for Villarreal CF and Shibasaki play for CD Leganes. These are some of the players I have been paying a lot of attention and have lots of respect. Our team has welcomed a new coach in August, and we are currently in the process of rebuilding the team. That is why the team must stay on the same page while we try to showcase our best performance as individuals. We will give our utmost efforts to earn positive results, and hope to make this a quality match.
