Superstars of Japanese Soccer players to be impressed on our memories

 

Soccer is one of the most popular sports in Japan. I remember the dawn of professional football (soccer) in early 1990s Japan. The J.League was started in 1993 and it is currently comprised (構成する、成る) of three divisions – J. League Division 1 (J1),  Division 2 (J2) and  Division 3 (J3). 

People of all ages and both genders watch soccer. The Japan national soccer team is currently among the highest ranked Asian teams in the world. The men’s national team is nicknamed the “Samurai Blue” after their jersey’s color, and the women’s national team is known as “Nadeshiko Japan” after a flower that is related to the image of the ideal Japanese woman (The women’s team won the 2011 World Cup).

Anyway, you should know some Japanese soccer players who contributed to boosting (高める) Japan’s presence (存在感).
