Look At Our Opponents –
Let’s have a look at Nagasaki’s last game against FC Gifu this midweek, what a crazy game this was, it finished 4-4 with Gifu scoring a very late equaliser, it was going so well for Nagasaki when they were 2-0 up after 42 minutes when Yu Kimura scored 2 goals (24’ and 42’) but Gifu got a goal back just before half time thanks to Hiroaki Namba on the 44th minute, Nagasaki regained their 2 goal advantage thanks to Ryutaro Ito on the 51st minute, Gifu came back to make it 3-2 thanks to Kyogo Furuhashi on the 64th minute, Nagasaki got their 4th goal on the 86th minute thanks to Hijiri Onaga but Gifu came back with 2 goals – 87th minute Cristian scored to make it 3-4 and then Daiki Tamori broke Nagasaki hearts when he equalised in the 95th minute – a stunning game.
