Guys? You are officially AWSOME!!! What a game at LEVEL 5 and what a victory! We are the Bravehearts of japanese football, but first a look at the team... Shino put Jumbo into the Starting 11 again instead of Okamoto It was a pretty tie game and, like in all last games, we were down with 0:1 early. A suprising longshot rocket from JEF-defender Ryota Aoki was a big punch in Avispa's belly and both, team and fans where shocked, but at the same time many fans thought "that's normal, our time will come". Chiba made alot of pressure on our goal and Daiki and Tanaka looked not so good in some situation. But we had some good situations in the 1st half too. Jogo had the best chance, but the ball hit the outsite of the post. In the 2nd half, we put some more pressure on Chiba's goal but the shots from Kudo and Sueyoshi went over the crossbar. Also JEF had some good chances in the 2nd half, but Kamiyama had another good day and saved us from a 0:2-down. The time went down and we had only 10 minutes to switch the game... After a corner from Nakajima, Daiki headed the goal to the back of the box where Yusuke stood. No defender covered him, so he tried his luck and shot the ball into the yellow wall. The ball got threw it somehow and landed in the net, after hitting some defenders. 1:1 and now everybody new "this is not the end!" JEF seemed shocked and tried to make the 1:2 with a total offensive run. In this run, Shu Kurata failed with a pass. Nakamachi grabbed the ball and had much place to look, who is in the best position. Genki had no place and Okamoto was covered by 3 defenders, but Jogo, who ran at the right side of the box was in a good position. Nakamachi played it wide to Jogo. Jogo didn't look for a directly finish, so he stopped the ball. He dribbeled and shoted a left-footed rocket which landed in the net! We turned a game again! We made it again! With a JOGOAL again!!! After the game, the team celebraited like we made it to the J1 already!!! I have to say, my eyes went wet at this moment. The team is more than a team! Now the finished the 1st game of "STOP THE YELLOW! !"!
Chiba was just the beginning of a series of pretty hard games. Next game will be at Yokohama against YFC, who beated the Verdy with 3:2 this weekend. After Yokohama, the Sunkings will come to Fukuoka to play the 2nd "STOP THE YELLOW! !"-match
The 90th Emperor's Cup 3rd round-game against Sanfrecce Hiroshima got a new date. The old date was 9th october, but Sanfrecce reached the semifinals of Nabico Cup, which will be at 10th october (2nd leg), so the JFA canceled the date.
Avispa announced the signing of Daisuke Ishizu today. The forward from Fukuoka University is a designated Player. The Fukuoka-born already practiced with Avispa in the last weeks.
Name: Daisuke Ishizu Date of birth: 15.01.1990 Height: 172cm Weight: 68kg Position: Forward
Ishizu played with Miyaji, Sueyoshi, Nagai, Sagan's Fujita and Verdy's Fukui at Fukuoka University. He was playing in the All Japan University Finals, when Fukuoka lost to Meiji University on 6th januray this year.
Kyohei Oyama scored a hattrick at Avispa's 3:2 trainingmacht-vicotry in the afternoon against the guys from Fukuoka University. Oyama scored in the 74th and twice in the 90th minute. A application for Shino to put him on the bench again.
We did it again! Similar situation before the game, similar situation during the game, similar situation after the game like last week against Toyama! We turned arround a 2:0-down into a 2:3-victory in the 2nd half of the 2nd round's 90th Emperor's Cup-game against Fagiano Okayama! There was one suprising change in the starting 11. Kamiyama must suffer an injury, because Rokutan played and Kasagawa was on bench... It started not good for us again after Fagi made 2 goals in short time, but Shino must found the right words again to cheer his guys up to show an other game in the 2nd half. 13 minutes into 2nd half, Okamoto headed the 2:1 after a corner. Just 6 minutes later, it was time for a Jogoal again! His 5th in the last 4 games! So the game was tied up and everything looked like both teams have to into extra-time, but then Avispa's best in the last weeks Kosuke Nakamachi scored the final goal to the first win against Fagiano in history and the final goal to the 3rd round of Emperor's Cup with a PK in injury-time! Let's call us "The Comebackers"!
In the 3rd round, we will face Sanfrecce Hiroshima. Sanfrecce won their game easily against Dezzolla Shimane with 4:0. I think it will be a pretty good game and it would be no shame if we lose it. Anyway, i really looking foward to the game. Let's see if Daiki can control Hisato Sato or Oka and Jogo can go throgh their pretty good defence. Sanfrecce is playing in a higher league and a higher level than we do, but the last 2 games showed....WE ARE FIGHTERS!!!
Avispa will face Fagiano Okayama at the 2nd Round of the 90th Emperor's Cup. The game will held at kanko Stadium in Okayama sunday evening, 18:00. The team headed to Okayama this afternoon.
It will be a hard game i think. Few weeks ago, Fagi reached a 0:0 in Fukuoka and the fact is, that we never reached a win against Fagi in the league...thanks got cup-games got it own rules most of time and it's a similar situation before the away-game in Toyama and it ended good for us.
If we win the game, we play against the winner from Sanfrecce Hiroshima - Dezzolla Shimane. That should be no problem for Sanfrecce...
