Real Japan 11 (リアル・ジャパン・11), which was renamed as Real Japan 7 (R.J.7) in Battle of World Youth saga, is a "shadow" Japan Youth team, created by Minato Gamo. It originally consisted of 11 members, four of which returned in Golden-23 as part of the selection team members of U-22 Japan.


In order to improve Tsubasa and the others of the golden age, Minato Gamo created a "shadow" Japan Youth team, a sparring partner of the legitimate All Japan. The team originally had 11 players, but since Igawa, Soga, Furukawa and Kazami left the team because of different reasons, it became the "Real Japan 7".

Real Japan 7 (Battle of World Youth) Edit

This special team who faced Japan Youth, making Minato Gamo decide to let go Hyuga, Misaki, the Tachibanas, Jito, Soda and Nitta for the 1st Asian Preliminaries and having as condition to come back stronger and beat R.J.7 if they want to become members once more before the 2nd Asian Preliminaries.

Real Japan 7 (Golden-23) Edit

For Golden-23, all players (even the Furukawa-Kazami combi) came back to play for Japan, except for Ryoma Hino, who is now Uruguayan.

Strategy Edit

All Real Japan 7 members have special qualities. In the case of R.J.7., Ryoma had his Dragon Shot, Urabe had Sliding Shot, Yumikura had Drive Shot, and the rest were great midfielders, defenders and with a great keeper. They, including the rest of the R.J.11., had enough stamina to endure a whole 90 minutes match, and be able to resist so as to surpass any team that were on the lead with the philosophy of "got one (goal), take one (goal) back".
