I also thought that countries like France are catching up on the juniors field, but looking at the last WJTTC they weren't even close. Koki Niwa is still the only real threat.
On the other hand the "getting more countries involved" he's talking about did work; A huge amount of different countries at the WTTC and even some talents like Noshad Alamiyan.

atm i think the only threats to the chinese on the junior field are the Japanese. Muramatsu, machi sakai....they did fairly well at the wjttc, and if you take into account defenders tend to hit peaks later in their careers, much can be expected from yuto.

also we forget players like kim min seok and seo hyun deok who are great talents....



on the womens side the chinese are unexplainably stronger than every other country. i dont know why, i think it is because they innovate with the womens game rather than copy old styles, and so they always advance.

maybe in the future the women will catch up, but it will take longer than the men- there are no women on the world scene currently who aren't of chinese origin that i see as a realistic threat to the chinese.

Yea, Yuto seems like he just needs some more experience and skills, then he will become unstoppable.
