J2 vs V-Varen Nagasaki: Player’s Comments

Keiji Tamada

I felt the ball would come to me. Hotaru (Yamaguchi) was looking to send it forward and I only had a brief amount of time to think before taking the shot, but I could see where the goalkeeper was and sent the ball exactly where I was aiming.

As a whole we worked very hard defensively, but when we have the ball we still aren’t moving it effectively. That is the aspect in which I feel something is lacking. We have to discuss a lot of things to improve that.

(About scoring his first league goal so late in the season) I don't want to think about the past, the important thing is the future. What I want to do is help the team when we are in difficulty.
