New Formation

Olympic Japan New Formation

Olympic Japan formation against Germany.

Against the tall Margus and the strong Schneider from Olympic Germany, and due to Jito's injuries and Misugi's less good physique for this game, the formation was greatly changed to a 4-4-2.

This formation has the particularity of including as starters the newcomers Igawa and Soga for the first time in the defense and Misugi has being changed position to the right side (he is no longer the libero). Now Matsuyama has being changed as midfielder with Tsubasa as center pivot, and Aoi and Misaki for the sides. This time, the tall Wakashimazu is replacing the fast Nitta as two-top with Hyuga.
