In the midst of all this, Himajin FC has also made some reinforcements for the start of this season’s J-League.
Reinforcement of J-League players
Jung Sung Ryong
Sung ryong is a goalkeeper of Kawasaki Frontale.
He just renewed his contract at the end of the year! He will continue to be an unshakable goalkeeper for Kawasaki Frontale this season.
We expect him to be a steadfast goalkeeper for Kawasaki Frontale again this season.
Ikuma Sekigawa is a center back of Kashima Antlers.
He played only 13 games in the 2021 season, but I am sure he will play a major role in 2022.
First of all, I would like to see him play consistently in the starting lineup.
He is only 20 years old, so we can expect more from him in the future.
It is only a matter of time before he is called up to the A team.
Kento Tachibanada is a midfielder of Kawasaki Frontale.
It is no exaggeration to say that he filled in the holes left by Ao Tanaka and Kaoru Mitoma last season.
He contributed to Kawasaki Frontale’s successive championships with his great performance.
I hope he will be a full-time starter this season and aim to win the championship again.
Jun Nishikawa has just been transferred to Sagan Tosu.
Last season, despite high expectations, he played 17 games without scoring a goal, and it must have been a frustrating season for him.
I’m sure he will have more opportunities to play once he joins Sagan Tosu.
I hope that next season will be a year of great progress for him.
He is only 18 years old, so we can expect him to represent Japan in the future.
Ayase Ueda is a forward for Kashima Antlers.
He played in 29 games last season and scored 14 goals.
With Yuma Suzuki set to return this season, it will be interesting to see how he is used under new coach Rene Weiler.
He has a lot of potential, so it’s only a matter of time before he moves overseas.
I hope that this season will be a year of further growth for him.
Leandro Damião is the MVP of the 2021 J-League.
Last season, he played 35 games and scored 23 goals, helping Kawasaki Frontale win the championship again.
There were rumors that he would return to Brazil, but he renewed his contract last month.
He is expected to play an active role as an ace of Kawasaki Frontale this season.
Cerezo Osaka’s defender Ryuya Nishio.
Although he is only 20 years old, he played in 31 games last season and scored 2 goals.
This season, his third year, we can expect more success.
I hope he will follow Tomiyasu and become one of the leading defenders in Japan.
You should check him out this season!
Goalkeeper Takagi Shun of Oita Trinita.
Unfortunately, Oita Trinita was relegated to J2 last season, but this season they have succeeded in extending the contracts of their main players.
I’m sure they will be back to J1 in a year.
Once they return to J1, the price of the cards should skyrocket, so I stocked up while I could.
I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do next season.
These are the reinforcements of J-League players.
I’m sure they will play an active role this season.
Next, let’s take a look at the players participating in sorare GW #234.
This will be my first time in the league in a long time, so I can’t stop being excited.
I’ve been able to get some players who I think will be active in the starting lineup, so I’ll be aiming for card rewards every time this year.
So let’s get started with the player selection.
Sorare guide is here
Sorare GW #234 Rare Card Contestants
The current issue is COVID. The infection is slowly spreading and affecting the players…. As a result, Bayern’s Upamecano and Mallorca’s Kubo Takefusa, who have been the mainstays of the team, are unable to play due to the COVID infection. This is quite a blow, isn’t it? It looks like we’ll be fighting COVID for a while this year…
Champions Europe D4 Players
- GK: Mark Flekken (Freiburg)
- DF: Nico Schlotterbeck (Freiburg)
- MF: Julian Brandt (Dortmund)
- FW: Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)
- Free: Giovanni Simeone (Ellas Verona) *Captain
These are the five players who will take part in the Champion Europe D4.
The defense is solidified by Freiburg’s two players who will be playing at home against 17th-ranked Arminia, while the attack is solidified by a strong attacking team of Julian Brandt, Benzema, and Simeone.
The captain was Simeone, who will play against bottom-ranked Salernitana. The Serie A has had a number of interruptions due to COVID, and we just hope that the match will not be interrupted.
Champion Europe PRO D3 Players
- GK: Yasin Bono (Morocco)
- DF：William Saliba (Marseille) *Captain
- MF: Julian Brandt (Dortmund)
- FW: Donyell Malen (Dortmund)
- Free: Breel-Donald Embolo (Borussia MG)
These are the five players who will participate in the Champion Europe Pro D3.
The focus is on Embolo, who will be used for the first time in a long time.
Borussia MG is playing Bayern away, and in the DFB Pokal cup tournament in October, Embolo scored two goals in a stunning 5-0 victory over the mighty Bayern.
The next game will be a tough one away from home, but Bayern is suffering from an increasing number of COVID infections. Bayern’s strength will surely be down.
Maybe Borussia MG can pull off a miracle!
Good luck, Embolo!
U-23 D4 Contestants
- GK: Gregor Kovel (Dortmund)
- DF: Gvardiol (Leipzig)
- MF: Jude Bellingham (Dortmund)
- FW: Haaland (Dortmund)
- Free: Kylian Mbappe (PSG) *Captain
These are the five players who will participate in the U-23 D4.
Until yesterday, Gregor Kovel was on the injury register, but it was removed today. This return is very big for the team!
He is coming off an injury, but he will probably play.
I’m looking forward to the card reward.
All-Star D4 Players
- GK: Gianluigi Donnarumma (PSG)
- DF：Marcel Tisserand (Fenerbahce)
- MF: Rafa (Benfica) *Captain
- FW: Serdar Dursun (Fenerbahce)
- Free: Nicolo Barella (Inter)
These are the five players who will participate in the All-Star D4.
I think it will be difficult to break into the top ranks, so I’m aiming for a minimum score of 205 points.
After all, our Himajin FC has a problem with a lack of goalkeepers.
We have to reinforce goalkeepers again because the criteria for selecting players changes depending on the goalkeeper’s participation or absence…
I want to get a rare card of Gianluigi Donnarumma…. I lament every day.
These are the four leagues I’ll be playing in!
I’m hoping to get the card reward this week!
Let’s have a great weekend at sorare!
See you soon!
