    President Message ごあいさつ

    To place in the top four in the FIFA World Cup. This is the goal that the Japan National Team "SAMURAI BLUE", lead by Coach Okada, has set for themselves for the World Cup in South Africa. Hearing the words "top four", there are those who would question this thinking, considering Japan's ranking in 45th place. However, if the strengths of Japanese football, such as the speed, agility, and intelligent plays, are put to effective use, it should be possible to beat the opponents who excel in physique and power. In Japan's fourth World Cup in a row, we are dead set on placing in the "top four" and making "SAMURAI BLUE" a name known throughout the world.

    Japanese football, which has advanced by leaps and bounds since the inception of the J. League, has made it to the World Cup ever since its first entry in France in 1998. The World Cup is no longer a dream competition for us, and the attitude of the Japanese people toward it is changing to one of aiming for the top eight or top four, let alone making it through the group stage. Growing stronger in football is essential for Japan, a developing country with respect to this sport, for stepping out on to the global stage. On the other hand, efforts for development in Japanese football looking forward to the next 20 and 30 years are also essential. The importance of "training and cultivation" is being reaffirmed in the leading football nations, and the inclusion of human and social education in athlete training is becoming the norm. In countries where such efforts have been adopted, the talents

    of athletes blossom when they are young, adding depth and value to the football of that country. Modern football is constantly changing. In order for Japan to ride this current, a framework that is exemplary of Japan's abilities should be developed based on the keyword of "world standards" in order to turn out many talented athletes. The most important factor for this is the training of athletes starting with the children's age group. Further, it is necessary to aggressively move forward with improving the J. League, training coaches and referees, and improving the football environment. Japan is a candidate for hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2022. If this is realized, then the athletes who will compete at that time are today's youth age group. It is also necessary to maintain a view for the future and take specific action in order to realize the dream presented in "The JFA Declaration, 2005" to host a FIFA World Cup in Japan at which the Japan National Team will be the Champion by 2050. Asia has the largest population in the world. Within Asia, Japan comprises a unique people with a national character of hospitality and a diligent and exacting spirit, possessing numerous resources that are the envy of the world such as our advanced infrastructure and cutting edge technology. I wish to realize the hosting of the World Cup in Japan in 2022 and utilize the greatness of Japan for the development of World Cups of the future and of football throughout the world. To this end also, I want Japan to achieve a superb performance at the World Cup and surprise the world.

    The three-legged crow holding a ball is called "Yatagarasu" and represents the god of day, namely, the sun, cited from a classical book of old China. It is believed that the Yatagarasu provided Emperor Jimmu and his army with directions on his expedition to the East and so there is a familiarity with the bird in Japan. The yellow and blue colors of the flag represent fair play and youth, respectively, thereby suggesting Japan Football Association's spirit of fairness backed by the vigorous power of youth.

    岡田 武史

    After the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany ended, Ivica Osim, who had taken over as head coach of the Japan National Team, had a stroke, and Takeshi Okada took over the responsibilities of head coach on short notice. Coach Okada was promoted from assistant coach to head coach during the Asian qualifications for the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France and carried Japan to its first appearance at the FIFA World Cup. After that, he directed Consadole Sapporo and the Yokohama F. Marinos. He demonstrated his skills through such feats as bringing Consadole Sapporo up in rank to the J.League 1st division and leading the Yokohama

    F. Marinos to the J. League championship twice. For this his second term as head coach of the Japan National Team, Coach Okada, with his extensive experience, will engage in football that puts to the fore the characteristic Japanese style of breaking down the opponent by outrunning them, working hard and aggressively on all aspects including defense based on his concept of "all players offensive, all players defensive" to face opponents from throughout the world. In this Japan's fourth FIFA World Cup, the goal will be to reach the top four and to surprise the world in this event that is the pinnacle of the football world.
