  • Sakai has realised he has a weak point-he gets sudden unreasonable fear if the ball goes near the goalposts.While practising with Rodrigo and Kyosuke,he realises the cause for his fear and he wants to prove it to Murakami that he is the best GK ever.

    I honestly felt this episode showed us Sakai's character.Beneath his (appealing) cool-headed arrogance,there is vulnerability and the need to be accepted.I could connect with him because my family also moves from place to place,I can understand how lonely he must've felt..
    This episode is very cleverly told,And i'm very much impressed.
