Japan vs Germany was the final match of the International Junior Youth Tournament in the Captain Tsubasa series.
Germany’s captain Karl-Heinz Schneider was able to score twice (minutes 21st and 52nd and both times assisted by Manfred Margus) against his Hamburg teammate Genzo Wakabayashi, but Japan got the victory thanks to a great team effort and goals from Taro Misaki (minute 25), Kojiro Hyuga (minute 40) and Tsubasa Ozora, the last goal during loss time.
Ryo Ishizaki got injured after blocking Schneider’s Fire Shoot with his face, and was replaced by Mamoru Izawa.
