Too busy (lazy) to give a full report on this game, which is something I regret because this was classic Frontale. A scoreline of 10-4 would have been a better representation of just how exciting it was.
I don't even want to get started because there are too many layers to unwrap - a veritable Russian doll of a football match. But let it suffice to say a) The ACL campaign is (somehow) very much alive and well and now rests upon a victory in Beijing in two weeks time. And b) Kengo's back! (Check out the news feature linked to below. Match highlights are at the end).
Roll on Urawa!
