Perhaps Karen Payne, a professor at the University of Fairfordshire in Britain, was right when she said that “the mind is what you wear,” a sentence that came as the title of her book, which talks about the direct impact between what a person wears and his self-confidence. After several scientific studies, Karen reported that the sample she chose to wear clothes bearing drawings of legendary characters such as “Superman” not only gave individuals confidence, but also made them believe that they possess miraculous abilities.
What was mentioned in the book, which was published in 2014, may be one of the keys to understanding Intisar Japan national team In the first round of the Qatar World Cup 2022, which is the victory that comes for the first time in its history over the German national team (four times world champion). You may be wondering how this was done? Simply not because the clothes that the Japanese wore in their exciting match were designed from the clothes of the Japanese national team that had won the World Cup in the virtual “mango” world, but the effect of that was in the belief of the Japanese in the least overwhelming.
Why Japan does not achieve the World Cup?
The series, which is widely spread in Japan, is called “Blue Lock”, which means blue lock. His idea dates back to 2018, when the Samurai national team was eliminated in the second round of the World Cup in Russia. At that time, the famous Japanese story writer Munyuki Kanashiro took the initiative to write a story that was embodied in an “anime” series consisting of a series of episodes.
The story that evolved from paper to become a favorite among fans of “anime” series mixed reality and imagination with its characters and events. It revolves around the Japanese dream, “Why don’t we achieve world CupThe exciting series begins with its events when the Japanese Federation chose a coach with a mentality closer to genius and madness, which is Igo Jinpachi.
As part of his project that began in 2018 towards competing in the 2022 World Cup, the genius coach selected the 300 best strikers from high schools across Japan, and with this project he believes that the blue team lacks a selfish, goal-hungry striker.
Events begin with the attackers being thrown into a prison-like facility. Limited food and strenuous training are sometimes irrelevant to the logic of the ball, but they seem effective to the eccentric coach.
In “Blue Lock” attackers under 20 years of age are isolated from phones and people. Battle and competition “require a revolutionary attacker who can stand on 299 corpses,” says the coach, who sits in an operations room full of screens and dreams, watching the penalty area fighters.
Within the events of the super plan, the attackers compete against each other. The only survivor among them has the right to become the striker of the national team, and those who are defeated will be banned from joining any team forever. This is a daunting and exciting challenge.
Battle of the attackers
Beating, kicking and selfishness prevail in the room, which is intentionally the size of the “penalty area” in football stadiums. The strange battle inside is a battle between attackers only, there are no goalkeepers or defense, everyone attacks his opponent, or rather, according to Igo’s genius, he is “fighting to become the first in Japan.” “.
And with the intensification of the battles inside the tight-fitting chamber, the number begins to decline, and there is no survival here except for the selfish forces thirsty for goals. And as each striker exits the room, his dream of kicking the ball is shattered forever. He can sell potatoes on the sidewalks of Tokyo, but it’s a shame he kicks the ball. This is according to the logic of the coach that Japan chose to achieve its dream.

Ego says that the room is the size of the penalty area, and this means that it is the place from which you create about 95 percent of the goals, so if you are unable to perform your work in this space, then you do not have the talent.” The guy is kind of crazy,” he said. “The total time a player spends in possession of the ball in a 90-minute match is 136 seconds. So you must create goals from those seconds, otherwise you will not achieve the dream of your country.”
According to the logic of the coach, who appears firm sometimes, and sometimes less firm, the survival of the Japanese national team is weak, is to think in traditional ways. 11 players work together. Self sacrifice. Playing for teammates. This is unusual for a coach who dreams big and plans. “Football is more about scoring goals than the opponent. Whoever scores is the greatest,” he says.
Selfishness is the weapon of Japan’s national team
The writer of the story in “Blue Look” borrows recently from international strikers such as Eric Cantona, the French striker who was prominent in the nineties, when he played for Manchester United, “I don’t care about my team, all I want is to attract attention.” That was a motivational sentence from the coach to the strikers who had retired from the outside world for years.
And he added, with another saying to Brazilian legend Pele, “The best in the world, whether he is a striker, midfielder, defender or goalkeeper, ask what you want, and the answer remains me.” This is a message to create a state of arrogance, selfishness, and vanity within the souls of young men, among whom competition has intensified.
After talking about Pele and Cantona, the coach exclaims, “What do you think… Isn’t that terrible!? They are all top players! They are all extraordinarily selfish… This is what Japanese football lacks. You cannot become the best striker in the world unless you are the biggest selfish.” In the world”.
The selfishly obsessed coach is not inclined to the traditional ways of football. In one of his lectures to his attackers he said, “Just imagine you’re in a World Cup final. 80,000 people are in the stands and you’re standing on the pitch, the score is 0-0, it’s the second half of extra time, it’s the last game with a pass from your teammate, you break through the defence… And you are in a one-on-one confrontation with the goalkeeper and your team-mate six meters to your right, if you pass, the goal is guaranteed in a moment when all the hopes of the country and the championship depend on you, and only the mad egoist can take that shot without hesitation… Break through these doors… Break common sense. On the pitch, you are the star!
Your own goals are the source of your joy
“Nothing should cheer you up more than your own goals… Just live for the moment… Isn’t that what it’s like to be a striker,” and that’s when the attackers start to get excited and believe in the madman’s logic.
The events of the series, whose story ends with the creation of a historic striker, will fulfill Japan’s dreams of the World Cup.
Perhaps this story that spread in the Asian country and the recommendations of the genius coach penetrated the mind of his player, Ritsu Down, who penetrated into the penalty area of the German national team in the 75th minute to score the equalizer for the Blue Battalion, before a crazier surprise occurred in the 83rd minute when Takuma Asano deposited the German striker, Stuttgart, with a goal. Progress and win. 10 minutes were exciting at Khalifa Stadium last Wednesday. Yes, and as the blue room man Igo Jinpachi says, “Football is more about scoring goals than the opponent. Whoever scores goals is the greatest,” even if the opponent was Manuel Neuer, Mueller and the rest of the Berlin men whose coffers are filled with gold and history.
Japan is participating in the 2022 World Cup competitions for the seventh time in a row, in a march that began in France 1998. It seeks to reach the quarter-finals for the first time in its history.
And after its historic victory over Germany, the Japanese national team striker, Retsu Down, described the victory as “to silence the arrogant tongues.” He added in a conference after the match, “I smile at them upset when I hear this and I said to myself, don’t be silly. As a man, I think such a result is the best way to shut up these tongues, so I am glad that things went in this way.”
The team’s confrontation tomorrow, Sunday, against Costa Rica, which conceded seven goals from the Spanish national team, seems more accessible, and it is sufficient to continue the dream of the Samurai towards advanced roles, and the dreams of “Blue Look” in “Mango” may be present on the ground in Qatar.
Symbols of prayers that bring joy
Regarding the shirts worn by the players, the “Japan in Arabic” website says that it is a costume based on the concept of “origami”, which is a symbol of prayers that bring joy.
It features the graphic design of origami on the front side that is foldable lines and open shapes. It differs from the usual uniform in the presence of the Japanese flag. Until now, the flag was placed over the crest on the left side of the chest, but this time it was placed on the upper back.
Adidas Japan’s advertising department explains this, saying, “This design includes a message that ‘at the same time that the players take responsibility for the country on their shoulders, the fans support the players and push them from behind.'”
In addition, the player’s number on the back has become yellow after taking into account the clarity of vision when watching matches on TV or smartphone.
Japan, whose mangoes and cartoons dominate the lives of its inhabitants and the lives and memories of the people, revived its exciting victory over the Manshaft team, “Nostalgia Captain Majid”, which are old memories of its people and a number of the inhabitants of the yellow continent, especially the Arabs. It is the famous cartoon series that gained wide popularity in the nineties of the last century.
