雲ひとつない快晴の中での試合でした。
月曜日の練習では、スペースがどこにあるのか、自分の相手はどこにいるのかを把握すること、その空いてるスペースにドリブルやパスでボールを運ぶことを意識しながら取り組みました。その練習の成果も少しはあったのか、今日の試合では、多くの選手がしっかりと顔を上げて、どこが空いているのか、誰がフリーなのかを自分自身で感じて、判断の伴ったドリブルやパスをすることができていたのが印象的でした。ボールを失った後の切り替えも早く、すぐに取り返そうとする姿勢や、ゴール前で粘り強さも見られました。
攻撃では1対1や2対1になる場面が多く、その中でも、落ち着いて、相手GKやDFをみてシュートやパスを選択して得点することが出来ていました。自分が得点するんだ!という強い気持ちも持ちながら、状況によって1番最適な選択をしたことによって得られた6得点であり、また、6人の選手がそれぞれ1点ずつ取れたのも、その結果かなと感じました!
気温も上がり、最後の方には疲れも見えましたが、選手全員が思っ切り走り回り、ボールを追いかけて、勝利に向かって頑張っていました! すごく良い試合でした!

A perfect sunny day for football. Everyone looked excited to play football before the game starts.
We could dominate the game from the first minute to the end by putting all efforts into the pitch. In the last Monday training, we focused on how you create spaces and how you find the spaces where you can drive the ball and pass the ball. Also, understanding where your opponent is. I don’t intend to say because of just only one training , but many players looked to me that they tried to create spaces and make attempts to drive/pass the ball there. I’m not sure if it was consciously or unconsciously but I’m very happy with the players about that.
Kazu could make an opening goal for us by creating a situation of 2v1 with Leo.
Moving on to the second period, Soma who was captain today had been playing well with a great composure and made a brilliant pass to Toma who scored brilliantly from that pass. 2-0.
In the third period, although we were attacked by the opponent, we defended very well with a determination and patience which resulted in a great counter goal from Yuta. 3-0.
The final period, we were unstoppable for opponent even though we conceded a goal unluckily, scoring another three goals by Take, Yuma, Kotaro. Take showed me a strong passion to score a goal and did it !!
Yuma put the ball into the nets calmly and Kotaro scored the final goal for us from an amazing cross by Soma. 6-1.
One great game! Well played boys!! Come on Samurai!
