Someone has a nice clip of the first goal of the season; Jogo’s header to win the game against Tokyo Verdy.
A corner by Omata is only half cleared and recycled by Sakata back to Omata to send another cross in.
Jogo meets the ball very well (his heading is often over-looked when people think of some of his amazing goals) and knocks the ball past the keeper.
Tokyo need to look at their defending; if Jogo had missed it I think Kazuki would have been the next to get to it.
Things I like about this goal:
– The corner wasn’t smashed to the back post like nearly every corner last year.
– Sakata has taken up a very good position on the edge of the box. He could be for a ball played short, or to recycle second ball.
– Pusnik telling them to get back and in position. We conceded so many goals just after scoring last year and the job wasn’t finished.
