Then the ball reached to Choi Chang Soo. Fire Dragon counterattack. Choi Chang Soo ordered Suzuno, Nagumo and Aphrodi to move up. Choi Chang Soo then passed to Aphrodi. Aphrodi then used his hissatsu technique, Shin God Knows to shoot but was stopped by Tachimukai's Mugen The Hand G5. Then, Gouenji Shuuya tried to get the ball but it was a foul. Kidou told him not to rushed because the match had just only started. The match continued with Fire Dragon's corner kick and Tobitaka got the ball. Kidou told him not to hold the ball for too long and told him that Hiroto and Midorikawa Ryuuji were free but Tobitaka didn't listen to him. Then Burn and Gazel got the ball from him.
