Matchday 6 Review – Fagiano Okayama 1-1 Tokyo Verdy (2016)

Matchday 6 Review – Fagiano Okayama 1-1 Tokyo Verdy

Tokyo Verdy got a point away to Fagiano Okayama, all thanks to Kenji Kitawaki in the last few minutes to share the points at City Light Stadium, though the game ended with Yoshiaki Takagi being sent off with a 2nd Yellow Card which was probably a bad point in the whole game.
To the game its self, Verdy had a early chance from a Daisuke Takagi Free Kick but goes wide, on 14 minutes Okayama couldn’t do anything with a free ball after a mistake by a Verdy DF, Verdy really came close to a goal on the 37th minute from a Verdy corner, the ball was headed towards the goal by Ibayashi but was cleared off the line by a Okayama DF as the Okayama GK was beaten, Okayama had a decent chance in the 58th minute from a corner but went wide and another decent chance in the 67th minute but sailed over the bar, to the Okayama goal, from a FK and was swung into the box, the more I look at the footage, I keep thinking the Okayama players are offside, but the goal stood and it was 1-0 to Okayama but in the 88th minute the ball found its way to sub Kenji Kitawaki who found himself 35 yards out maybe and just let rip and the Okayama GK couldn’t reach it at all, what a goal by Kitawaki, one of my early goal of the season candidates. But then in the 90th minute, Yoshiaki Takagi got himself sent off for a 2nd bookable offence and had a early shower and that’s how it finished in Okayama.
