  • Description

    THE ALL-JAPAN FOOTBALL CHAMPIONS, THE KANSAI ELEVEN FROM YANMAR, ARRIVED IN KUALA LUMPUR RECENTLY AND WERE SOON CUT ON THE PRACTICE FIELD DEMONSTRATING THEIR CONSIDERABLE SKILLS.

    THE FAMOUS TEAM MANAGED BY KOJIRO YAMAOKA WERE RECENT WINNERS OF THE EMPEROR'S CUP THE HIGHEST AWARD IN JAPANESE FOOTBALL. THEY BROUGHT THEIR MOST FAMOUS PLAYER, 24-YEAR-OLD KAMAMOTO TO MALAYSIA.

    KAMAMOTO WAS THE STAR OF JAPAN'S INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC TEAM. WITH HIS DASHING PLAY KAMAMOTO GAINED INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION AT BOTH THE TOKYO AND MEXICO OLYMPICS. IN MEXICO HE WAS THE HIGHEST INDIVIDUAL SCORER OF THE COMPETITION, HIS SEVEN GOALS HELPED JAPAN TO FINISH THIRD, THUS TAKING THE BRONZE MEDAL HOME TO JAPAN.

    WITH THE AVERAGE AGE OF THE TEAM ONLY 22, FANS BELIEVE IT HAS A GREAT FUTURE WITH MATURITY WELDED TO THE ZEST AND SKILL THAT THEY ALREADY HAVE.

    THERE ARE TWO BRAZILIAN-TRAINED STARS IN THE TEAM, NELSON YOSHIMURA AND CAUROS ESTEVES, BUT MANAGER YAMAOKA INSISTS THAT THEIR RISE TO FAME HAS BEEN THROUGH TEAM WORK.

    LOOKING AHEAD TO THE 1972 MUNICH OLYMPICS THE TEAM HAS ALREADY BEGUN TO PREPARE THEMSELVES FOR THE ASIAN QUALIFYING ROUND AGAINST AUSTRALIA.
