Winfried SCHAEFER, Head Coach

I am pleased to visit Japan again. First time I came here in 1969 and I remember oh so well. I had many occasions for interacting with Japan and Japanese people have been always nice to me.
I think Japan football made remarkable progress in recent years. I am well aware of Dettmar CRAMER, my fellow country man, was involved in training football in Japan.
I am looking forward to coaching in the game as many Japanese players are playing in Europe, especially in Germany.

DF  Westley MORGAN

I am honored to come to Japan. We just arrived here but really look forward to enjoying the stay in Japan. I am sure it won’t be an easy game but I will do my best. As Japan has many competitive players and I am going to prepare well and make it wonderful game.

FW  Michael SEATON

I am very happy to come to Japan for this opportunity.
Japan is very good team and I know some famous players like Kagawa and Hond. It is going to be very important game for our team and I want to play good football.
