The Japan National Football Team held an official training session ahead of their training match against Colombia in Osaka on 28 September, and MITOMA Kaoru, who plays in the English Premier League, expressed his enthusiasm, saying, "We want to win the battles and show that we can break down well as a team."

The Japan national football team drew 24-1 with Uruguay in their first training match since the World Cup at the National Stadium on 1 this month.

The members of the national team held an official training session in the evening of 28 October in preparation for their training match against Colombia at Yodokozakura Stadium in Osaka on 27.

In the first 15 minutes, which were open to the media, MITOMA and ITO Junya, who came on as a substitute in the match against Uruguay and assisted the equaliser goal, made adjustments by running and passing the ball around.

Their opponents, Colombia, were eliminated from the World Cup Qatar after being eliminated in the South American qualifiers, but their world ranking is 17th, which is higher than the Japan's 20th place.

We have a proven lineup of players such as James Rodriguez, who scored a goal from Japan at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Mitoma said, "In the match against Uruguay, more than 6,<> supporters came, but we couldn't create many scenes where we could dominate both offensively and defensively. I think there are a lot of people who are expecting to score goals, so we will do our best to live up to their expectations."
