Matchday 22 2017 Review –Tokyo Verdy 1-1 Fagiano Okayama

Verdy settled for a point after a 1-1 draw with Fagiano Okayama at Ajinomoto Stadium, well this was a better result than last week’s game, with Verdy defender Tomohiro Taira came up with a goal with 15 minutes to go to save Verdy for another defeat. To the game, it was a early chance for Verdy when Hideo Hashimoto hit the cross bar from just inside the D – very good chance, next it was a chance for Okayama – after a cross into the box from Hyung Jin Park and it feel to (I think) Shingo Akamine and he shot but Shibasaki got a hand onto the ball and put it over the bar, next it’s to a Okayama corner – it was crossed into the box, it bounced off a Okayama player and then the ball fell to Yuta Toyokawa and he placed the ball into the back of the pretty much empty net to make it 1-0 to Okayama, into the second half, Verdy were on the attack and almost took the lead after some nice football by the boys in Green, a Koki Anzai shot from within the d was saved by the Okayama GK and the rebound came to Alan Pinheiro but after some last ditch defending saw Pinheiro’s chance hit the cross bar – so close to a equaliser, another chance for Verdy when a blocked shot from Kojiro Shinohara came into the box and Douglas Vieira got a head to the ball which was headed towards the goal but the Okayama GK saved it and put it past the post, it was another great chance for Verdy from a free kick – Yoshiaki Takagi’s free kick hits off the cross bar and the follow up chance was put wide, but the equaliser came from a Verdy corner, the corner into the box found the head of Tomohiro Taira, Taira headed the ball into the back of the net inbetween 2 Okayama defenders, but the game finished 1-1 and a decent point for Verdy.
