Grampus Scrape into Emperor's Cup 5th Round

Nagoya earned a place in the next round of the Emperor's Cup after a narrow 1-0 win over FC Gifu. While this was another game that highlighted the lack of depth of the team's squad, with the absence of Tamada and Magnum being particularly hard felt, the defense continued to hold their opponents scoreless. This keeps the team in games and provides the chance for last minute heroics, as was the case yesterday, with Maya Yoshida bagging the winning goal in the 89th minute.
