final thoughts

In terms of Sorare you could probably put together a decent Champion Asia team, although the forward options are not the best at present and at the time of writing the best forward isn’t available on Sorare yet. Another concern is the back-up options although the back-up keeper and Iwanami are good options on Sorare when they play.
