The match I've played at Kashima Stadium is over and I still can hear that pleasant roar of supporters that have been there for me from the first up to the last minute ( and during all my short journey to Japan) with all their passion and fantastic enthusiasm. 

This match against JLeagueAllStar, organised by J-League to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Japanese League, ended with 4-0 result in favour of a team I played for, the "Team as One" and I scored the 2-0 goal.

It was wonderful to get back to score... And above all it was incredibly nice to be hugged by this fantastic people that once again showed their affection for me. I want to thank you all, Japan will stay in my heart forever.
