20th Anniversary Match

It was a fantastic deer hunting last Saturday for Urawa Reds!! 

Shinzo Koroki gave the home side a 78th-minute lead after Daisuke Nasu had canceled out Takuya Nozawa's opener, before substitute Tsukasa Umesaki made the game safe with a third in the 89th minute. 
(Actually Koroki was offside for his goal, but the referee validated.) 

The game was chosen to commemorate the J-League's 20th anniversary celebrations. 

*An actress Chiaki Ozaki, who was born on the same day as J-League started, made a short speech 

Two legendary players from each team's history, Robson Ponte and Alcindo, was in attendance to mark the occasion. 

Shinji Ono also watched the game near my seat. 

We sang "We are Diamonds" with Ponte after the game. 

Happy birthday, Makino!! 

Don't be puffed up with pride!! lol
