A quick run through of the games so far in FC Gifu’s pre-season tour/camp
February 3rd – Nissho Gakuen High School 2-9 FC Gifu (Inoue 4, Someya, Yamazaki, Desmond, Sekita, trialist)
February 5th – Kyunghee High School 4-10 FC Gifu (Inoue 2, Sugimoto 2, Nakashima 2, Yamazaki, Someya, Masuyama, trialist)
February 7th – Gainare Tottori 0-1 FC Gifu (Nakashima)
February 9th – HOYO Oita 1-3 FC Gifu (Sugimoto, Nakashima, Tanaka)
What can we learn from these games? Not a lot is probably the truthful answer. They are a mixture of 30 or 40 minute quarters to maximise playing opportunities. But it is interesting to see a competition between Inoue & Nakashima starting to bubble up. Both amongst the goals, but Nakashima seems to getting more playing time.
Gifu will wrap up their camp in Oita tomorrow, and the next scheduled pre-season friendly is on February 24th against Kyoto Sanga.
