When your national team earns a historic win at the World cup, it’s normal that all fans want to visit their history makers but just a few of them are ready to climb a wall to watch them.
24 hours after Japan’s 2-1 win over Germany, Hajime Moriyasu’s men were enjoying a hot Doha day in Al-Sadd training ground while Japanese and foreign journalists packed there to record the players every single movement.
In addition to more than 50 Japanese journalists, the crews from Opta, BBC sport and other western media try to find out how Samurai Blue beat the “die mannschaft” (German national team).
Moriyasu’s men were divided into two groups; the players who were in the starting line-ups had a light warm up and jogged around the pitch and others made “rondo” with an intense prank mode trying to fool their opponent.
Moriyasu was watching their players from a distance and a big smile on his face showed that he was enjoying the moment.
Now at the World Cup there are only a few open training sessions where supporters can attend and Japan is not one of them.
However behind the camp doors a group of fans tried every possible way to have a glimpse of their heroes. However they were not successful but at least tried their best, from climbing a fence to standing on a concrete platform.
This was the first victory and the fans could control their crazy mood but if they continue their winning streak, maybe Moriyasu will be compelled to add some bricks to Japan’s camp wall.
