Matchday 7 Review – Tokyo Verdy 4-3 FC Gifu

Tokyo Verdy 4-3 FC Gifu

Tokyo Verdy won 4-3 at Home v FC Gifu, what a unbelievable game this was, FC Gifu were 1-0 up after 14 minutes after Kazuki Anzai pulled down Rodrigo and Namba put away the penalty, the 2nd goal came from a mis-placed pass from Misao – Masuyama got the ball and then passed to Namba to slot the ball past the Verdy GK to make it 2-0 on 19 minutes, 3rd goal from Gifu came after some good work on the left for Takachi to cross in and Namba to get his hat-trick on 27 minutes, but the excitement was yet to come.
Had to wait till the 84th minute for the goals to start coming for Verdy, after some good work by Nagai in the midfield – Nagai passed to Pinheiro, Pinheiro shot and hit the post but no one was marking Hiramoto to put it in the net to make it 1-3, 86 minutes then Verdy got the 2nd goal from a beautiful Chugo FK to make it 2-3, 92 minutes on the clock, the score was 3-3 after some good work on the left – cross in from Pinheiro was headed in by a unmarked Sugimoto and the crowd went wild, then on the 96th minute the unthinkable happened – Hiramoto scored in the 96th minute after he was unmarked in the box after a cross from the right was flicked on by a Verdy player – that made it 4-3 to Tokyo Verdy, wow!
