Young talents of Japan national football team who will be successful in the Tokyo Olympics

 

The soccer in Japan has greatly grown up in these past 20 years. But I don’t think it’s reached a high point.

「masterful technique」(巧みなテクニック),「organized movement」(組織立った動き),「tactics」(戦略) …

 

These are very important, but the most important thing that decides victory or defeat is mental power. I’ve been watching soccer games in Japan since J League starts (1992), and I feel their “lack of the slyness (ずる賢さ)” all the time.

It is so hard for Japanese to play craftily (狡猾な方法で). Zico thinks so, too.
