playing soccer without any vision. After his match Kuribayashi explained more about "blind soccer" and suggested that he, Shou and the Furuya's would have blind socer match. But after the Furuya's were not so convinced about the match, Kuribayashi suggested that Furuyas would have match against him with their eyes open. The Furuya's were suprised about that, but they agreed to do it. Even without eyesight, Kuribayashi dribbled easily through the Furuyas and scored with Shou as goalkeeper. All of them were so suprised about it, that they agreed to join the blind soccer match against Kuribayashi's team. Before the match begins he gave them one last piece of advice, which was: use your imagination! Even with that on the mind everybody tried to rely only to the sound and opponent scored many goals before Ouzou suggested a time out.
