FC Ryukyu in J2

February 25, 2019

FC Ryukyu made history yesterday with their opening match of the new season when they became the first team from Okinawa to play in J2 the second highest tier of J.League football. What’s more they won the game 3-1 in the rain against a strong Avispa Fukuoka team. It was an exciting match with Ryukyu sticking to their all-out attacking philosophy despite having lost their manager and many of the players from the J3 championship squad of last season.

Ryukyu are now led by new manager Yasuhiro Higuchi. Two of their goals yesterday came from debut striker Koji Suzuki while the other was scored by midfielder Yu Tomidokoro. It may be a long hard season for Ryukyu but they have made a great start with this unexpected win.
