This Japan vs Real Japan 7 match was the second of two friendly games that coach Minato Gamo set up during traing camp in preparation for the World Youth Tournament. Real Japan 7 consisted of seven japanese players not selected to represent Japan Youth (for different reasons) assembled to test the japanese team skills and real potential.

This was a 7 vs 7 match where Japan Youth took revenge against Japan 7 after the previous hard loss. Japan put on the field the seven players that temporarly left the training camp after that loss.

It is known that both Japan under 20 starting forwards (Shun Nitta and Kojiro Hyuga) scored hat-tricks and that Kazuo Tachibana acted as goalkeeper. Half uruguayan forward Ryoma Hino (who would later play for Uruguay in the World Youth Tournament) scored the two goals for Real Japan 7.
