A lot of supporters welcomed us at Narita Airport
Many supporters gathered at Narita Airport to welcome the players, wearing uniforms and holding messages for the players.
A man who dyed his hair red like Nagatomo said, "The match was great. I want to say 'Bravo' to the players who gave me happiness for a long day. Thank you for your hard work, Mr. Moriyasu. I want to speak out," he said.
A woman in a uniform who had been waiting since noon said, "In the match against Croatia, Mitoma dribbled alone and couldn't score a shot that approached the goal, but I was impressed. 'Thank you for the excitement, thank you for your hard work.' I want to tell you," he said.
A woman who watched the games against Germany and Costa Rica said, "I was really happy when we won against Germany, and I was able to feel that Japan is strong. If you continue to support them for four years, you will have a good game. I was able to see it, so today I came to pick you up with the feeling, 'Thank you for the excitement, thank you for your hard work.'"
