J-League 2014 has begun, and Urawa Reds has had a great start with 1-0 win against Gamba Osaka yesterday at the rainy Expo '70 Commemorative Stadium.
Starting members are almost the same as last year except the goalkeeper.
Tomoaki Makino struck in the 43rd minute, which gave Urawa Reds the very first goal of this season.
He soon thanked the captain Yuki Abe, who made a good shot to assist Makino's goal.
Genki Haraguchi showed a barnstorming performance with the special number 9, which made me feel a little strange.
I hope he'll grow up quickly to be called Mr. Reds.
And the new goalkeeper Shusaku Nishikawa also played well.
I'm sure the combination between the goalkeeper and defenders is getting better and better.
I can't wait the next weekend to see Urawa Reds home opener!! ＼(^o^)／
