【Comment from SHIGETOMI】
We knew what kind of football the opponent will play, and we conceded. It means we let our guard down. In a difficult situation such as the match had been called to a halt temporarily due to technical issues with the floodlights, I think that it was good that we could get the minimum 1 point.
The conditions are the same as the opponent, including the pitch condition, so we need to develop more football we are working on, and we want to learn a good lesson and move on to the next match. The match against Brunei DPMM will be a very tough match, including flying to Brunei, but we will work hard to earn 3 points and return to Singapore with smiles.
【Comment from NISHIGUCHI】
It was great to be able to catch up as we were all trying to get points while the match was suspended.
(Looking back at the scoring scene) Teammate Rio saved us from conceding the goal and managed to get the counter from there.
we were conscious of putting the numbers up in front, so I got inside, and as a result, the ball rolled in front of me, so I just finished it.
(In the upcoming next match) We will practice hard for one week so that we can get 3 points, and we will definitely win.

It was a very tough match. I think our team even though we were 1-0, 2-1 down, could come back positively and we manage to get the draw.
For the next match, we will difinitely improve more and definitely get the 3 points.
【Comment from TANIGUCHI】
I’m glad I got the score, but I still have the regret that I can not play as starting member, and I have a strong desire to play in the match throughout 90 minutes, so I will continue to appeal as a result of scoring and assisting.
The match was suspended temporarily, but I wasn’t too concerned about it, so I told myself that I would concentrate when the match restarted, so it was a bitter situation of going down 1-2 in the remaining 15 minutes, but everyone in the team felt we could get something out from the match, so I think that led to 1 point.
The next game is an expedition to Brunei and I think it will be a tough match, but I personally want to score, assist, etc. so that the team can get 3 points and get the title.
