EC vs Sagan Tosu: Player’s Comments

Hotaru Yamaguchi

We performed well and so I don't feel like we lost 2-0. In the first half we should have had more of the ball but weren’t able to, perhaps we were a little afraid of the J1 opponents. In the second half we spoke about improving that aspect and consequently had more possession and created some opportunities. If we had been able to score one of those the game could have been different, but maybe that's the difference between J1 and J2 sides.

However, in the second half we showed that we can compete. Maybe we should have done that from the first half. There were also some simple errors when we had the ball. We felt there was a difference, but if we are able to correct that then we can become a better team able to play well against J1 teams as well.
