The Japanese and South Korean football teams have played in each other’s stadiums in the past, but that will not be the case again for Saturday’s rematch.
Jalen Rose and his New York Jets face off against the South Korean national team on Saturday, and the game will mark the first time the two teams have faced each other since 2011.
The Jets have not won in Japan since the 2011 Super Bowl win, a loss to the New England Patriots that was the final game in Japan’s first Super Bowl appearance since the 1999 Olympics.
Japan will be the first team to face South Korea since the 2002 World Cup, a defeat to the hosts that sent the hosts to the final.
In addition to the matchup, the game is also the first for Rose and the Jets to face each other in the final since the 2015 championship game, a game that was marred by a massive bomb that destroyed the stadium.
Rose said he felt confident about the game, especially after seeing the field of play during his time in Tokyo.
The game will be broadcast on ESPN2, with the game also being broadcast live on ESPN’s SportsCenter.
Rose’s teammates said it will be a “special” match.
Rose told ESPN in a text message that he thought the game would be a big show, and he thinks he’ll have a good time.
Rose has been a key member of the Jets offense, which is led by wide receiver Josh McCown, who has rushed for 1,872 yards and 14 touchdowns this season.
The Jets are third in the NFL in rushing offense, but are fourth in passing offense.
The team is also second in the league in total offense, averaging over 270 points per game.
