Profile Edit

Boys' Fight arc Edit

As Hyuga was not allowed to play in the middle school tournament, Sorimachi had to play as the ace striker to lead the team to the final. Although his shots are not really deadly (a normal Tiger Shot is twice as powerful as his goal shots), he is good at scoring, since many assistances are made Takeshi Sawada, Toho middle school's gamemaker.

After the 16th National middle school championship, Sorimachi was selected as a member of All Japan Jr. Youth by Tatsuo Mikami. He went through the training camp, and became a member of the All Japan Jr. Youth. Then, he participated as a regular only on the European tour prior to the U16 World Championship. He was a regular in the friendly match against Hamburger SV.

During the Championship, he acted as a substitute player and was used twice. In the semifinals of the International Jr. World Cup against France Jr. Youth, he was uses as an starting member and then replaced during the match for one of the Tachibana twins. He, together with the Japanese National Team, eventually became junior world champion after beating West Germany Jr. Youth.
