Match Highlights

Kashiwa 1, Santos 3: Match Highlights

  • JP

    Santos will have to possess the ball better to be able to compete with Barcelona. But, oh boy, they scored three great goals in this first match.

    Muricy Ramalho will probably play a counter attacking style trying to isolate Neymar and Borges against the Barcelona defenders.

    I’m getting pretty stoked for Santos v. Barca. That’s a pretty epic matchup for Club World Cup final. Classic Europe vs. South America plotline that connects to deep soccer history.


  • Neruda

    Sweet goals. That last free kick was filthy. I still think barca is better but santos will press hard.


  • Artie

    Anyone else see the black and yellow letters behind the left goal?

    “We’re Kashiwa Stupid”

    Am I missing something, or was something lost in translation?

    I believe its a reference to the fact that they are not Kashima Antlers, a different J-League club.


  • Ghastly

    I would rather have seen Concacaf break through to the final…Monterrey had the sqaud to do it and the chances

    MLS couldn’t afford them. The average J-League team makes twice as much revenue as a MLS side and that isn’t taking into account the MLS salary cap.
