Matchday 19 2017 Review – Tokyo Verdy 3-3 Ehime FC

Verdy were in a thrilling game against Ehime FC with the score ending in a 3 all draw, to the game itself, Verdy had a great chance first up after Alan Pinheiro just shot over the bar, but it was first blood to Verdy early on in the game thanks to a Douglas Vieira goal in the 15th minute after some good football between Koki and Pinheiro and after a pin point cross from Koki Anzai found Vieira was left unmarked and he headed the ball into the back of the net, decent chance for Vieira in the 39th minute but it was Ehime who scored the first goal of the second half after a cross back out to Kazuhisa Kawahara who shot just outside the D and the ball went into the back of the net to make it 1-1, and it was a few minutes later and Ehime made it 2-1 after some passing play – the ball got passed off to Kosuke Shirai who blasted it into the back of the net but Vieira got his second goal of the game and Verdy’s equaliser on the 69th minute to make it 2-2 after a shot by Koki Anzai deflected off Douglas Vieira to desive the Ehime goalkeeper and it went into the back of the net, with almost 90 minutes up in the game, Ehime got back ahead on the 90th minute after a counter attack and the ball was passed off to Takashi Kondo and he shot found the top left of the net and settled into the back of the net to make it 3-2 to Ehime but the game still wasn’t over when Shion Inoue crossed a ball into the box and the ref gave a penalty to Verdy after Kosuke Shirai was thought to have used a high boot and give away the penalty and it was up to Yoshiaki Takagi to score the penalty – he steps up and puts the ball into the right hand side of the net and the Ehime GK went the wrong way so it finished 3-3 between the teams, what a entertaining game it was.
