SAMURAI BLUE wins intense battle against Uruguay to mark 3 consecutive victories at KIRIN CHALLENGE

SAMURAI BLUE wins intense battle against Uruguay to mark 3 consecutive victories at KIRIN CHALLENGE

17/10/2018, Japan, Soccer, Japan Football Association, Article # 27914332

On Tuesday 16 October, the SAMURAI BLUE (Japan National Team) faced the Uruguay National Team in the KIRIN CHALLENGE CUP 2018 at Saitama Stadium 2002. Facing the South American side who is ranked fifth in the FIFA rankings, Japan earned a 4-3 victory thanks to the brace scored by midfielder MINAMINO Takumi (FC Red Bull Salzburg) who is in a three-game scoring streak. With this win, Japan has now recorded three consecutive victories under the new regime of Coach MORIYASU Hajime.

Following their 3-0 victory over the Panama National Team four days ago, Coach Moriyasu has rotated his starting line-up with the exception of OSAKO Yuya (Werder Bremen) and Minamino, who has started in all three matches under the new coach. With HIGASHIGUCHI Masaaki (Gamba Osaka) in goal, NAGATOMO Yuto (Galatasaray S.K.), SAKAI Hiroki (Olympique de Marseille), YOSHIDA Maya (Southampton FC), and MIURA Genta (Gamba Osaka) featured the defence line, while SHIBASAKI Gaku (Getafe C.F.) and ENDO Wataru (Sint-Truidense V.V.) were placed in the defensive midfield position. NAKAJIMA Shoya (Portimonense S.C.), DOAN Ritsu (FC Groningen), and Minamino were named in the midfield with Osako playing as the lone striker.

In contrast, the Uruguayan starting line-up saw just two changes since their previous match against the Korea Republic National Team four days ago. Forward Edinson CAVANI and defender Diego GODIN were included in the line-up that featured nine of the members who participated in the recent World Cup where the team finished in the top eight.

The opening goal came in the 10th minute, as Minamino later reflected, “We were anticipating to make a move in the early minutes,” the in-form midfielder received the ball from Nakajima before making a brilliant turn to free himself up and struck a right-footed shot to give his side the early lead. It was the first time since LOPES Wagner in 1997, where a player scored in three consecutive matches following his first national team goal.

Uruguay struck the equaliser in the 28th minute when Japan gave up a free kick in the left flank. Uruguayan defender Sebastian COATES headed the delivery back into the mix to allow Gaston PEREIRO to tap the ball into the net. However, Japan would respond just eight minutes later, when Doan released the ball to Nakajima who made his move to the goal area and struck a shot. The shot was initially blocked by the goalkeeper, but Osako was there to convert the loose ball to give Japan the lead once again.

Japan entered the second half with a 2-1 lead, but in the 57th minute, the Japanese defence line made a mistake by passing the ball back to their goalkeeper Higashiguchi while Cavani was still in the goal area. The Uruguayan striker swiped the ball away and capitalised on the opportunity to level the match. But just two minutes later, Japan showed their resilience once again when Doan played a give-and-go with Sakai to burst into the box and struck a left-footed shot to mark his first national team goal, making the score 3-2. With momentum on their side, Japan forced a turnover deep in the opponent’s half in the 66th minute, allowing Doan to strike a shot. His effort was blocked by the goalkeeper, but Minamoto was there to convert the rebound to extend their lead to 4-2.

As seen in many occasions, Osako did well to hold onto the ball upfront, while Nagatomo and Sakai took care of the spaces in the flanks. With the young players excelling in offence, the experienced players did their job to keep the team intact, just as Coach Moriyasu has been striving to create a fusion among different generations.

Japan conceded another goal in the 78th minute, when they were caught off-guards following their substitution. A counter led to Cavani’s last pass to Jonathan RODRIGUEZ, who struck Uruguay’s third goal. The match would see more opportunities created by Japan in the closing minutes, but it ended with a final score of 4-3.

The team showcased quick fast breaks and their eagerness to finish their attacks with a shot, but at the same time their weakness was also exposed in this match. Nonetheless, the team has now recorded three consecutive victories since Coach Moriyasu has taken over the helm. This was the first time the national side has done so since Coach Vahid HALILHODZIC took over in 2016.

Japan will now face the Venezuela National Team on 16 November at Oita, followed by the Kyrgyz Republic National Team on 20 November at Toyota.

Coaches and Players' Comments

MORIYASU Hajime, Coach of SAMURAI BLUE (Japan National Team)
I would like to thank all of our fans for supporting us at the stadium and through the broadcast. I would also like to thank KIRIN for providing us with this wonderful opportunity to play against a world-class team. This result was made possible by our players who challenged themselves to play to their full potential and stayed eager to win the match. The collective efforts made by the four attacking players and the long feeds provided by the defence line has really seemed to function well together. The young players like Nakajima, Minamino, and Doan has really shown their strong intention to score a goal. I hope to gather what these players have felt confident through this match and implement them into the team’s overall strategy. However, despite showing great attitude in offence, we could have conceded less goals. We wanted to at least finish this match at 4-2. The players executed our game plan to challenge the ball aggressively and showcased very persistent defence, but we must take better care for the set-plays. I feel that the World Cup match against Belgium has really given the players, especially those who plays in the domestic leagues, the confidence that they can put up an equal fight against the world’s top teams. We hope to heighten the overall quality of our plays and strive for a higher level.

DF #22 YOSHIDA Maya (Southampton FC)
As a defender, I have a mixed feeling because we have conceded three goals, but overall, I believe we showcased a great match. I was actually surprised by how many goals our offence scored today. We showed many vertical approaches in this match which was something Coach Halilhodzic has preached us in the past. However, the first goal was conceded from an unnecessary foul I have committed, and the second goal was purely our mistake. The third goal could have been avoided as well. It’s been a while since we have kept a clean sheet with our full member on the pitch, so we must improve on that aspect.

MF #9 MINAMINO Takumi (FC Red Bull Salzburg)
I knew we were going to face a tough opponent, but I managed to keep my composure and stayed focused on helping out the team. I had a sense of urgency that the new players upfront must make the difference, so I was committed to earn results today. The two goals I scored today gave me great confidence and I was able to prove that I belong here ahead of the Asia Cup. But more than anything, I am just glad I was able to help the team win.

MF #21 DOAN Ritsu (FC Groningen)
In the scene where I scored the goal, at that moment I passed the ball, in my mind I was begging Sakai to return the ball to me. The most important thing is the team’s victory, and I believe that I was able to contribute with my hard work. I also managed to showcase a stable performance throughout the 90 minutes without being overly attached to scoring goals.

FW #15 OSAKO Yuya (Werder Bremen)
With many players anticipating to make vertical runs, I focused on settling the ball upfront. We got a bit shaky after the score was 4-2, and we still have long ways to go, but I believe that we should ride this momentum created by the young players for now. It will be ideal if we can maintain this momentum while the veterans take control to keep the team intact.

Oscar TABAREZ, Coach (Uruguay National Team)
We saw a total of seven goals and many opportunities. Both teams’ defence line made many mistakes and the flow of the game did not go in our favour. We struggled to play how we wanted to in the first half but managed to perform well early in the second half. However, we were not fit enough to carry the momentum towards the end of the game. The Japanese goalkeeper made two excellent saves. I am proud of my players for their aggressive approach, despite making mistakes. That attitude is very important at the world stage like the World Cup. Japan showed great speed and combinations upfront. They were a great team and they certainly deserved this win.

Match Report

On Monday 15 October, the U-18 Japan Women's Futsal National Team faced the U-18 Spain Women's Futsal National Team at the semi-finals of the 3rd Youth Olympic Futsal Tournament Buenos Aires 2018 and won the match 3-2 to advance to the final.

In a match where a win would guarantee the team a medal at the Youth Olympics, Japan came out applying aggressive pressure from their front line. Despite allowing Spain to take control of the ball possession, the Japanese side denied their opponents from creating a clear opportunity. In the eighth minute, from their persistent defence, Japan came close to scoring the opening goal when MAEDA Miu delivered a ball cutting across the opposing goal, but YAMAKAWA Rikako failed to connect with the delivery. Japan would continue to threaten the Spanish goal, but conversely gave up the first goal of the match in the 18th minute when they were caught off guards from a kick-in.

Japan entered the second half with a fresh mindset as they attacked tenaciously from the early minutes. In the 22nd minute, Maeda received the ball from IKEUCHI Aki and captured the goal to level the match. ARAI Ichika followed in the 25th minute, when she forced a turnover deep in the opposing end and capitalised on the opportunity to give her side a 2-1 lead. In the 33rd minute, OINO Sara, who later reflected, “It was very nerve-racking to play with over 6,500 spectators,” captured the team’s third goal to give them a commanding lead.

In efforts to score goals, Spain employed their power-play for the remainder of the match, as Japan’s patience were being tested. Japan will concede a goal in the final seconds of the match but managed to win the match with a final score of 3-2. With the win, Japan has now secured their spot into the final as well as a medal that would come in a colour of either silver or gold.

The team will now face the U-18 Portugal Women's Futsal National Team at the final, an opponent who they have lost to in the group stage. The match will take place on Wednesday 17 October with a kick-off time of 18:00 local time.

Players' Comments

FP #5 OINO Sara (Laufen)
We got rattled a bit when we conceded the opening goal in the first half, but we managed to stay vocal and keep our composure to come from behind by scoring three goals. I think we were able to showcase are persistency. Our opponents came out playing their power-play at the end and scored a goal, but we managed to sustain our lead and won the match 3-2. I am happy that was able to contribute to our victory by scoring the team’s third goal. At the final, we will be facing the Portugal team who we have lost in the group stage, so we will enter the match with a strong intention and great courage to win the match.

FP #6 ARAI Ichika (Fukui Maruoka RUCK)
First of all, I am so glad we managed to win the match. Although we conceded the opening goal and we were forced to play defence for a long stretch, the fact that we managed to keep our focus has led to this result. We hope to showcase great defence and score goals at the final as well. Our next match is the final match of the tournament. I will play to leave no regrets and try to enjoy the match as much as possible. We will give our very best to take home the gold medal to Japan.

After the meeting, President SHERPA and General Secretary TULADHAR made a tour round the Japan football Museum, where they were able to see and learn about various aspects of JFA including its history.

They have also listened attentively to the introduction of various activities of JFA in the area of “Youth Development”, “Coach Education”, and “Grassroots Development”.

SAMURAI BLUE’s Coach Moriyasu, “Ideal opponent to test our current strengths” regarding their

16/10/2018, Japan, Soccer, Japan Football Association, Article # 27907908

On Monday 15 October, Coach MORIYASU Hajime of the SAMURAI BLUE (Japan National Team) appeared in an official press-conference held at Saitama Stadium 2002 ahead of their match against the Uruguay National Team in the KIRIN CHALLENGE CUP 2018. The coach shared his thoughts on facing a powerhouse who’s ranked fifth in the FIFA rankings, “They are an ideal opponent to test our current strengths. I want my players to fight with a perspective that they are facing an equivalent opponent.”

Under the new regime, the SAMURAI BLUE has registered two consecutive shutout victories with a score of 3-0 against both the Costa Rica and Panama, and now they will be facing a Uruguayan side who has participated in 13 FIFA World Cups. As shown in the recent World Cup held in Russia, where the team advanced to the quarterfinals, Uruguay is known for their deadly counter attacks initiated from their solid defence. The travel squad who arrived in Japan includes 16 of the recent World Cup members including their ace Edinson CAVANI (Paris Saint-Germain).

Meanwhile, Japan is in the process to fusion the young players and the players who fought in the recent World Cup. As Coach Moriyasu has mentioned, “We want to utilise as many players as possible in these two matches,” suggesting that there will be a major change in their starting line-up from the Panama match played four days ago. Perhaps, players who weren’t involved in the previous match, such as YOSHIDA Maya (Southampton FC), NAGATOMO Yuto (Galatasaray S.K.) and NAKAJIMA Shoya (Portimonense S.C.) may get their turn to play on the pitch.

When asked about the Uruguay National Team, Coach Moriyasu stated, “They are a very experienced team. The core of the team who fought in the World Cup remains the same, meaning that their maturity level and degree of perfection will be even higher. They will present us with a great level of challenge.” While staying alerted against their opponents, the coach also shared his aspiration with their goal of reaching the quarterfinals at the World Cup in mind, “I believe we can do it too. I want my players to fight with a perspective that they are facing an equivalent opponent. They are an ideal opponent to test our current strengths.” Regarding the match, the coach demanded his team to “Enter the match with a strong intention to keep a clean sheet,” and to seek for improvements in the overall level of the team by “Deepening their mutual understandings of the strategies and combinations while staying vocal throughout the match. I want the players to pursue their individual roles without hesitation.”

On this day, the team conducted an official training session behind closed doors, where the first 15 minutes were open to the media. The players were seen warming up as they jogged around and stretched their bodies. The field players were then divided into two groups and conducted ball possession drills where ITO Junya (Kashiwa Reysol) was seen joining the team after he was seen training on a separate menu the day before. Once the session went behind closed doors, the team went through their tactics ahead of their match.

Uruguay also held an official training session on this day, as their session was also conducted behind closed doors except for the opening 15 minutes. While the session was open to the media, the team was seen going through passing drills to work up a sweat.

Despite their 1-2 loss to the Korea Republic National Team on Friday 12 October, Coach Oscar TABAREZ didn’t seem to worry about the result, “Our ultimate goal is to put up good results at the 2022 World Cup at Qatar. At this stage, we are not seeking for results, but rather testing the young players.” The coach continued by stating, “The conditions of the players have gotten better. We hope to showcase a great match tomorrow.”

Many players from the Japanese side has mentioned that they were looking forward to facing a powerhouse like Uruguay, as MINAMINO Takumi (FC Red Bull Salzburg) shared his take, “They are very strong in terms of both individual and team level. We must seek what we can do against such team. I will initiate the action at all times and simulate the space surrounding me.” The team captain, Yoshida also mentioned, “Our patience maybe tested for a long stint of this match, but with the World Cup in mind, we must be able to put up an equal fight against teams like this. We hope to showcase a high-quality football match.” The captain continued by speaking of the young players of the team, “They are very talented. I want them to prove that against these strong opponents.”

The KIRIN CHALLENGE CUP 2018 match against the Uruguay National Team will kick-off at 19:35 on Tuesday 16 October at Saitama Stadium 2002.

Coaches and Players' Comments

MORIYASU Hajime, Coach of SAMURAI BLUE (Japan National Team)
Following the two matches played at the KIRIN CHALLENGE CUP, we will like to stay eager to earn a victory while presenting a good performance. With Uruguay making it to the quarterfinals at the recent World Cup, they will present us with a different challenge compared to the previous two matches against Panama and Costa Rica. We must be prepared to face a very tough match, but at the same time they are an ideal opponent to test our current strengths. If we are striving to make the top eight at the World Cup, we must be able to put up an equal fight and win against them. I want my players to keep that in mind when they go out on the pitch. Uruguay is capable of exploiting and capitalising on their opponent’s mistakes. I told my players to enter the match with great caution and to attack with the intention to finish up their plays with a shot at the goal. The players have shown great combinations in their attacks thus far, so I hope we can improve on what we’ve got moving forward.

DF #2 MIURA Genta (Gamba Osaka)
This is a rare opportunity to face such strong team. They are a very high-level opponents, but I hope to give my very best while enjoying the game. I will stay aggressive and keep a close range between my target. We will continue to communicate with everyone including the ex-World Cup players.

DF #22 YOSHIDA Maya (Southampton FC)
Our patience maybe tested for a long stint of the match, but during this training camp, we have been working on moving the ball around with a great tempo, so we hope to showcase that in our build ups to initiate our attacks in good form. In order for us to do so, we must work hard to apply pressure from the front line to force turnovers at a high position. Once we force the turnovers, we must make a quick transition and send quality feed upfront. During this process, the defenders must keep in mind to stay compact. We will be facing a tough opponent, but I am looking forward to facing wonderful players like Cavani.

MF #6 ENDO Wataru (Sint-Truidense V.V.)
I am happy to return to Saitama Stadium. I have been playing as a defensive midfielder as of late, so my sense on the field is getting much better. We will be facing a very strong team, but I will work hard and create more opportunities upfront while contributing to our defence at the same time.

MF #9 MINAMINO Takumi (FC Red Bull Salzburg)
Uruguay consists with very high-level players at every position, so we must be able to showcase performances and combinations with much higher quality. I am not a big player, so I must keep in mind to receive the ball in space rather than to receive it to my feet. I will stay eager to earn results while helping out my teammates so that I can gain the trust from my team.

Oscar TABAREZ, Coach (Uruguay National Team)
I have seen with my own eyes just how much the Japanese football has improved over the years. They have developed into a team who has appeared in six consecutive World Cups and their forwards consists with great speed, techniques, and the ability to strike shots. They have showcased an epic match against Belgium at the recent World Cup, and it has proved that Japan now has a wonderful base to build on. This match provides us with a great opportunity to prepare ourselves ahead of the 2019 Copa America and the 2022 World Cup. We hope to showcase a wonderful match.
