Emperor’s Cup vs Nagoya Grampus: Player’s Comments

Takaki Fukumitsu

Q: Please look back your winning goal that was scored at early time?
“It was great to score a goal at the beginning, and I am happy about we didn’t allow to lose a goal either.”

Q: Did the team plan to attack from behind opponent’s defenders?
“Yes, we were expecting Nagoya would hold the ball as it is their style to play. So we kept our concentration, and we were thinking our chance would be immediately after when we snatched the ball, so I am happy that we played like that and scored after snatching ball. However, we had more chances for 2nd and 3rd goals, and we must executed those. We were under severe pressure at the end, so we should work on it.”
