July 28th (Fri) Cerezo OSAKA vs Paris Saint -Germain FC Match day Program
On Friday, July 28, Paris Saint-Germain FC will play the second match of their Japan Tour 2023 at Yanmar Stadium Nagai. Their opponent will be Cerezo Osaka, the stadium-based club that won the J-League Cup and the Emperor's Cup in 2017 and is a perennial contender in the J1 League.
As the club's catchphrase, "We are all superhumans. Paris Saint-Germain FC has a lineup of world-class players. Neymar, who wears the number 10 jersey for both club and national team and plays with great creativity; Marquinhos, who captains the team and is also a key defender for Brazil; Aklav Hakimi, who contributed to Morocco's success at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 last winter; and many others. All of these players have outstanding experience and accomplishments.
In addition, looking at the new players this summer, we have Marco Asensio, a Spanish national team attacker who has troubled Japan at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 and FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, Manuel Ugarte, an up-and-coming Uruguayan volante, and Luca Hernandez, a versatile defender who can play both center back and left back. Luca Hernandez, a versatile defender who can play both center back and left back.
Spanish coach Luis Enrique, who will lead the team from the 2023-24 season, is a coach who favors a ball-holding, attacking style of play. The team's overwhelming style, in which each player displays their individual strengths and works well together to score goals, will be a focus of the team's attention.
Cerezo Osaka, their opponents, also have players who know the world. Shinji Kagawa, the club's ace number 8, has been active in Europe for many years and has experience in the UEFA Champions League and other major tournaments. How the Cerezo Osaka ace, who once wore No. 10 for Japan and played in the FIFA World Cup, will fare against Paris Saint-Germain FC will be the focus of the match.
Hirotsugu Kiyotake, who has just returned from an injury sustained in February, is another player with plenty of experience in Europe and with the Japanese national team. If he and Kagawa are able to play together, we hope to see the two technicians work together to break through the Paris Saint-Germain FC defense. Expectations are also high for the bold play of 18-year-old Sota Kitano, a regular in Japan's national team for his age group. Also, Korean goalkeeper Yang Han-bin will be looking forward to playing against his compatriot Lee Gang-in, who has joined Paris Saint-Germain FC. This matchup is also one to watch.

In addition to apparel items such as T-shirts, rash guards, and caps with the official tour logo, there are also items for daily use such as muffler towels, penlights, mug cups, clear file sets, and underlays.
