I went to watch a Japanese Second Division's football game on Sunday. The Spa Kusatsu(16th in the season) played against Mito Holｌyhock(15th) in the home stadium in Gunma Prefecture. 3356 people gathered from Gunma and Ibaragi Prefecture.
Result: The Spa Kusatsu(Purple&Yellow Uniforms) 0-0 Mito Hollyhock(White Uniforms)
Although two Mito Hollyhock's players went away from the field due to Red Cards, The Spa could not find a way to score. The result disappointed Supporters who screamed for The Spa Kusatsu. I found the team struggled with strategic problems.
That was a very local football game that almost all people may not pay attention to. However, this level of a match is very important for the Japanese national football team to grow stronger. The more people get involved to a football, the stronger the national team can be.
