Grampus Off to Winning Start...

OK, so Sunday's game was only a practice match, but Nagoya got off to a 3-0 win against the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Kanoya.

This saw Hayuma Tanaka and Davi make their first appearances in a Grampus shirt, although both only played for the opening 45 minutes.

First Half Lineup:
GK: Nishimura
DF: Tanaka, Bajalica, Yoshida, Abe
MF: Tsuda, Yamaguchi, Yoshimura, Magnum
FW: Sugimoto, Davi
Scorers: Sugimoto, Yoshida

Second Half Lineup:
GK: Hirono
DF: Takeuchi, Masukawa, Yoshida, Sato
MF: Ogawa, Hanai, Yata (U-18), Niigawa
FW: Maki, a trainee
Scorer: The trainee :-(
Rookies Matsuo and Hashimoto also saw playing time in the second half when they replaced Yoshida and Yata.

This gives us a clue as to how the team will use some of the players. In particular, it is good to see that Sato may have developed enough to be considered as a sub for Abe.
