I have never heard of this comic before, but, in the UK, it would be equivalent to Roy of the Rovers' Melchester Rovers rising from non-league.....that would be pretty cool.

Nankatsu's local government last month announced that it would buy land to build the club a new stadium, which they would need to gain J.League membership.

Please, please, please - no running track!

Takahashi says it could be named "Captain Tsubasa Stadium" and there are plans to include a museum of character memorabilia to attract tourists from all over the world.

And please make it easier for non-Japanese and overseas people to buy tickets.

He thinks Japan can win the World Cup in his lifetime

Japan has won the world cup once already. Does Nankatsu have a women's team?
