Hector Bidoglio, head coach of Johor Darul Ta’Zim admitted the team is growing but that will take time. and Urawa Red Diamond’s opponent team is a big team in Asian Football after the match defeated Urawa Red Diamonds, a club from Japan with a score of 0-5 in the AFC Champions League 2022 round of 16 East zone last night.
“This is the highest level of football in Asia, where awareness and decision making of the players are very important. You can’t afford to make mistakes.” Venezuelan coach said.
“We conceded early from the penalty and free-kick, and the morale went down. We weren’t playing our usual passing game too, going for long balls instead. I reminded the players to always stick to our philosophy of play. We moved the ball better in the second half in terms of how we wanted our team to play.”
“It is never easy playing against Japanese clubs. They are the giants of Asia and Urawa are two-time ACL champions too. We are growing but that will take time. The team has shown progress in the ACL yearly and I believe this will continue as we strive to reach greater heights. We will go back and continue working on further improving ourselves.”
