Comment of Coach IKEDA Futoshi (Nadeshiko Japan)
We would like to thank everyone who contributed and helped to make this European tour possible, despite all the restrictions imposed during this time of the pandemic. The Serbia Women's National Team, who we will face on 24 June, recently won against Germany in the European qualifiers for the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup, and with a young squad, we feel they are a team with a lot of momentum right now. In addition, we are expecting a highly intense match against the Finland Women's National Team on the 27th, as our opponent will be preparing for the upcoming UEFA Women's Championship, which is due to be held in July this year. Both countries have players who play in Europe's top leagues, and we think that both will give us a lot of experience in terms of individual strength. With the need to further strengthen our team ahead of next year's FIFA Women's World Cup™, it is vital that we play more matches to gauge where we are in the world. We will fight to make the most of this opportunity.
