He set a goal that may seem impossible, saying, “I still have the goal of being number one in the world, but I will fight with the goal of becoming the World Cup champion. I also want to work with a strong mindset.”
‘Sports Nippon’ said, “Until now, coach Moriyasu has not said that he is the world’s No. 1,” and listened to the players’ will as the reason. It is said that without the will of the players, no matter what the coach sets, it cannot be achieved.
However, ‘Sports Nippon’ saw that it read the will of the players who worked with coach Moriyasu at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. “The players had the spirit to aim for world No. 1,” he added, looking at the players disassembling after losing to Croatia in the round of 16 in a penalty shoot-out.
Coach Moriyasu also said, “I aimed for the quarterfinals or higher, but I regret that I did not set a higher goal. I thought it would be good to see the quarterfinals or higher while aiming for world No. 1.” Explained.
Japan will play A-match against Uruguay on March 24 and Colombia on March 28. Coach Moriyasu ordered, “I want the players to level up on their own.”
