Emperor’s Cup vs Albirex Niigata: Player’s Comments

Yasuki Kimoto

- Please look back your decisive goal.

“Before entering extra time, I found that the substitute Maru-san (Yusuke Maruhashi) still had enough energy left, and I was also told by the manager to ’attack from left side’. I always love to attack since I was in high school, so I was thinking to take a chance and go forward. I had a chance before I finally scored. And it gave me a vision (when I scored the goal), helped me to go through to front with a return pass, then I could kick the ball without strain. I’m very happy that I kicked the ball calmly, I feel the practices have paid off.”
