Japan started with defensive formation.

 

Torazo Kitagawa played as goalie and protected Japan goal instead of Kazuo Maki who had gotten injury in a RoW Cup match for his club.

 

Until the mid-game, both teams were evenly matched.

 

But the difference of the keeper of both teams appeared to score.

 

If Maki had played, Japan might have led.

 

Japan NT needed points since they lost their first game, so they changed formation to offensive one gradually.

 

Toward the end of the game, Japan replaced midfielder by forward and played more offensively, but as a consequence they lost possession and Australia had more chances.

 

Final score was 1-4 and Japan suffered consecutive defeats.

“More defensive tactics than against USA, didn’t you?”

 

Coach

Maki’s absence was a blow.

He is key player of our defense.

Against USA, I tried counter attack, on the other hand, I aimed to reduce chances of the opponent by high possession.

If he had been able to play, we could have had another tactics and another result, I think”

 

 

Reporter

“Losing two games, it became decided that we would be eliminated”

 

Coach

“It’s a shame.

I’m sorry for supporters.

We will still fight next match with Russia for the pride”
