Hi, guys and welcome to 2020. My introduction to this year's thread will be maybe a little shorter than usual, because I am currently having a holyday overseas for the new year, so I've got not much time to pass on the internet. Anyway, the really important part is just having the shiny new thread available to post on it, isn't it? 2019 has been a year of ups and downs for Japanese football. The biggest letdown was of course the WWC, where we didn't even reach the quarter-finals. AFC U-19 title and Beleza's victory in the first Asian Women's Club Championship lifted our spirits up a little in this final part of the year. Now, for 2020, our eyes will be pointed to U-20 WWC and, especially, on Olympic Games at home, where we all hope Nadeshiko Japan will manage to medal. So, all ready and set for 2020 rollercoaster, guys? I'm soon going to ask a mod to lock the old 2019 thread, so make sure to start posting here!
