I would like to see if Japan's National team can beat the Top Spain's National team. Spain did not even send any of their top 3 players as seniors. They were too busy celebrating the EURO. This U23 is not Spain's top team if you look at the list of players in the team, so don't ge too excited.

Japan was amazing in this match,we beat the top Spanish team with players like De Gea, Alvaro Dominguez, Javier Martinez, Jordi Alba, Adrian Lopez, Juan Mata, Koke etc. Japan can now win this gold medal for the mens football Olympics tournament. Our boys played very well and we showed that the future of Japanese and Asian football is as good as ever. Otsu and Kiyotake did very well and so did the other boys in our Olympic team. NIPON!!
