S-Pulse 5-0 Arterivo Wakayama
Shirasaki 2, 25, 80
Shibahara on for Nabeta (41)
Kashiwase on for Kang (60)
Kawai on for Shirasaki (80)
Unilke Sapporo, Kobe, Hiroshima, FC Tokyo and Tosu, we didn't get giant killed. In fact, the gulf in class was so evident, this was the closest you can get to a walkover victory in football.
A very young team (average age of 22.6) showed it's potential and overcame with ease the Kasai league opponents. Wakayama offered very little threat, managed only three shots all game, and none of them troubled Hayashi.
By a twist of footballing fate, in the next round we meet Tokyo Verdy, current club of Jymmy Franca. He'll be back at Nihondaira on October 10th. Wednesday 7pm.
All the goals.
