Coach and Player’s Comments

Eduardo BERIZZO, Coach
I have visited Japan many times, but I am always impressed by the kind gestures shown by the people here. Japan is a wonderful country and I always look forward to coming here. We are here to play in a friendly match, but for the Paraguay National Team, this match will serve as an important test match ahead of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers. The Japan National Team consists many talented players who plays in Europe. Our style of football is a very attack-minded style and it is important for us to play strong while keeping a good rhythm. I would like to thank the people of Japan for inviting us for this match, and I hope we can showcase a great match for the people here.

Richard SANCHEZ
This is my first time visiting Japan, but I am getting the impression that Japan is a very beautiful country, and the people are very kind. The Paraguayan football style is a very passionate football style, and we also like to play compact football. I have the impression that the Japan National Team has many talented players. This friendly match will give us a great opportunity to get our team organised and to build our team bond. We hope to showcase a spectacular match, so please come to the stadium to watch us.
