Kawasaki Frontale beat Gamba Osaka in Emperor’s Cup Final

After winning the J-League, Kawasaki Frontale also achieved the Emperor’s Cup trophy. Due to the extraordinary nature of this season because of the pandemic, Toru Oniki’s pupils had enough by defeating Blaublitz Akita in the semifinal and Gamba Osaka in the final to get their second title of the year (in this edition of the Cup only four professional clubs participated, the rest were semi-professional).

One of the revelations of this campaign, Kaoru Mitoma, overtook Kawasaki with the only goal that would be scored in the match and that in the end would be mean the win, without a doubt the perfect icing to close the season and say good by to one of the legends of the club like Kengo Nakamura who hangs up his boots at 40.
