Grampus Romp to 6-0 Win Over Fukuoka

In the second practice game of their training camp, Nagoya coasted to a 6-0 over Fukuoka University on Wednesday. They had beaten a high school team earlier in the week, a game in which Josh Kennedy and Yuki Maki did most of the damage. Not surprisingly, most the starters from that match were rested or given a limited run out against Fukuoka.

Although these practice games offer little insight into how the team will play come the start of the season, it is an opportunity for players to stake their claim in the core of the squad. With Narazaki, Tulio, Kanazaki and Tamada all away with the Japan national team, the competition for places even on the subs bench will be tough this year.
