After the game, Shinjo said, “I think (the players) are going to experience different things and grow. We just have to endure it now so that when we get stronger later, we can say, ‘I had a time like that,'” Shinjo said in a positive way to encourage his players.

“It’s the athlete who plays the game. Do it boldly, with remorse and the will to win. The results of victory and defeat are all my responsibility.”
