Rui is victorious in his return to the field.
Rui Ramos and the rest of Team Japan 1994 beat a collection of Shimizu All Stars 2-1. Players who might be familiar to Verdy fans included Head Coach Hashiratani, Tsuyoshi Kitazawa, The Miura brothers, and Teruo Iwamoto as well as two active players (Hattori and Nanami).
A crowd of over 17,000 came out to see the old lions go at it one last time. To put it in perspective, that's 3 times what Verdy averaged last year for games that count in the standings.
