I watched the last day of open tryouts at Suifu Field this morning. The quality of play was very good among the candidates, and most were from the youth teams of J1 or J2, or from JFL or lower league players, all wearing their practice kits. Also there were two African players in Mito uniforms, likely already scouted and asked to join the practice. These two seemed to be the best on the field today with another one or two who might also be considered for a spot.
