Comment

KOGURE Kenichiro, Head Coach
We are delighted to be playing a friendly match at home for the first time in almost two and a half years and to be playing Brazil in that match. In the past, we have played friendlies against Brazil in 2006 and 2012, and I still vividly remember playing in front of a sell-out crowd in Japan. The 2012 match was particularly exciting as Mr. MIURA Kazuyoshi played with the team, and the result was a 3-3 draw. In last year's FIFA Futsal World Cup™ we played Brazil in the round of 16 and lost 2-4. It will be a great opportunity for the Japanese futsal community to be able to face them in Japan once again. Brazil is the number one country in both football and futsal. It is still fresh in our memories that the recent KIRIN CHALLENGE CUP 2022 match between the SAMURAI BLUE and the Brazil National Team was quite a match. We hope that many people will take advantage of this opportunity to discover the joy of futsal.

Note

・This is the first time for Shimane Prefecture to host a match for the Japan National Team, regardless of the category. It is also the first time for Toyota City to host a match for the Japan Futsal National Team.
