Japan National Team arrive at base in Brazil

Japan National Team arrive at base in Brazil

On 7 June, The Japan National Team finally arrived in Brazil, where they will face the challenge of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Japan finished their training camp in Florida, America, winning a friendly against Zambia 4-3 on 6 June, and left Clearwater the following morning. They flew to Brazil from Tampa International Airport on a chartered plane.
After the players were welcomed by an arch of water at the Viracopos International Airport in São Paulo state, they traveled by road to their base in Itu, which is located in the northeast of São Paulo.
At the centre in Itu, in which they will stay, Mr Fukushima, the consul general, as well as representatives of the Japanese communities in São Paulo gave the players a warm welcome. The players, 50 staff, and 350 pieces of luggage, weighing four tons, settled in to the brand-new place.

The players will start their training sessions in the centre on 8 June in preparation for their first match of the championship on 14 June.

Comments

Alberto Zaccheroni, Head coach
Finally we’re in Brazil. We’ve been practicing for four years for this moment since the team was assembled. I feel very pleased that we are here now. We will get ourselves in shape in this week.
My team is well prepared and they have improved so much. So, it will be about putting on final touches.
We want to stay positive with smiles, and be confident having the faith in our ability, just like other teams, who got through qualification.

HASEBE Makoto(Eintracht Frankfurt /Germany)
We are in Brazil, finally. We’d like to achieve a good result, getting ourselves into great shape based on our four-year preparations.
As our team is in good physical condition, it now comes down to our mentality. I want to focus my mind on the opening match, so that as a team we can play well. We still roughly have a week before the first match, so I want to build up a good atmosphere for the team in preparation for the coming challenge.
