    Goals for Schillaci, Amoruso and Trezeguet aren’t enough to see off Japan Legends, the hosts 5-4 victors in front of a passionate home crowd in Maebashi

    The Juventus Legends returned to the field overnight in Japan for the most eagerly-awaited appointment of their swift Asian tour and, as expected, David Trezeguet’s men did not disappoint on the drama front.

    For the passion of the home supporters, swelled by a host of youngsters in black and white jerseys to roar on the Bianconeri, for the excitement brewed pitch-side by Jay and for the nine goals scored in total, it was to be an afternoon to remember at the 15,000-seater Shoda Shoyu Stadium. 

    As it turned out, goals from Salvatore Schillaci, Nicola Amoruso and captain Trezeguet would not be enough for the Legends to avoid a 5-4 defeat at the hands of their Japanese counterparts but the result did little to take the shine off another entertaining outing for Juventus’ black and white ambassadors.

    But the action does not stop there: next up it’s Tokyo and no doubt another terrific reception from the Old Lady’s Japanese supporters in the capital.
