Comment of Coach MORIYASU Hajime
We are grateful to be given the opportunity to face Mexico, who is one of the powerhouses in CONCACAF. Mexico has consistently played in the FIFA World Cup and their underage-categories have also been successful at international competitions. They consist a play style similar to Japan, which carries great emphasis in ball possession and team devotion, so this should be a very productive match for us. We will be facing a prestigious opponent, so we must thoroughly prepare ourselves to make it a respectful match where we can showcase our full strengths.
