    Saw that Higashi Fukuoka lost in the second round the other day, was pretty dissapointed. Guess I have to cheer for Hiroshima or Kagoshima Jitsugyou now.

    I posted at the media thread, but I will post it here as well.

    Extra time winning goal at the high school final:

    A really good buildup:

    I only watched a final.
    Yeah I was very impressed with their play. Skilled and tricky, very nice combination.

    The city of Yasu is not far from my hometown. Teams from Shiga Prefecture are getting into the mainstream of high school soccer nowadays.


    How does high school soccer compare to that of J-League youth teams? I've heard that Gamba youth is really good.
