Third in a row
Nozawa Yosuke helped Albirex Niigata (S) F.C. to their third League Cup in a row in a nail-biting cup final against Warriors F.C. last Friday. This League Cup win is the sixth trophy that Nozawa has lifted ever since signing on to become Mitre's endorsee for the Anza G2 Pro Negative gloves.
Before Tsubasa Sano could score the match winner in the 110th minute, Albirex had to survive several major scares, two of which had Nozawa rising to the occasion to save the day.
Warriors were awarded a spot-kick in the 82nd minute after an Albirex defender was adjudged to have handled the ball in the penalty area. The resulting penalty kick by Jordan Webb was however thwarted by Nozawa.
Nozawa made another major save in extra time, tipping Shahril Ishak's intelligent lob over the crossbar.
MitreSG congratulates Nozawa on creating history once again!
