Japan Women's Soccer National Team "Nadeshiko Japan" has started a training camp in Sendai City for the first warm-up game in a year scheduled for this month.
Japan, which is ranked 10th in the world ranking, is scheduled to play two warm-up games this month, and will face Paraguay, which is 47th in the world in Sendai City on the 8th, and Panama, which is 59th in the world in Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo on the 11th. ..
The training camp began in Sendai City on the 5th, and players playing overseas also joined for the first time in a while.
Then, a circle was formed on the ground, and when the players of the domestic group called out "Welcome back", the players of the overseas group such as Mana Iwabuchi of the ace replied "I'm home" and the practice started.
Since it was the first day, the menu was lighter on the 5th, and 24 players, including Iwabuchi, the youngest player on the team, and 18-year-old Momoka Kinoshita, were making adjustments by running and spinning the ball with a smile.
Kinoshita said, "I was surprised that I was selected this time because I didn't feel that I was able to play at the training camp I was called last time. I didn't think I would be called as a representative until a month ago. The Tokyo Olympics were a single person. I was selected to represent Japan and became aware of the Olympics, and if I have a chance, I would like to slip into the members. "
