Yesterday, in the sweltering afternoon heat, FC Gifu beat Shimizu S-Pulse 3-1 in practice game held at S-Pulse’s training ground. Goals from Nazarit (2) and Ryoto Higa gave Gifu the win.

While we are on the subject of Shimizu S-Pulse it is never a chore to plug their English language Twitter feed at @spulse_eng. It is good work from the man behind the S-Pulse ultras site.
