Levain Cup vs Urawa Reds: Player’s Comments

Daichi Akiyama

“I knew it would be a tough game. But we all worked hard, defended tenaciously, so the next game should be good too.”

Q: Didn’t you achieve a lot as a team too?
“That’s right. I think everyone felt ‘we’ve done’, and also we showed that we could do it with the new members.”

Q: What did you talk about prior to the game between members?
“We talked that if we defeat opponent with this member it would boost our confidence. We haven’t lost any regular games so far, so we were saying ‘don’t be defeated!’”
