It wasn't really a rematch, as it was a one-off select team from various clubs that represented Japan in the second game. As I understand it, the senior Japan team that will be heading to the Olympics have gone on to other preparations since the first match.

Pellerud is now calling it a "camp". The man is surely a politician.

In defense of Pellerud ... players/staff do call it a "camp" whenever they get together -- whether it's just for training or if there are games involved etc.
