The first half between Inazuma Japan and Arab no Hinotori Gundan ended with a score of 1-0. Ichihoshi Mitsuru is still torn between saving his brother and playing soccer as he wants to do. Inazuma Japan tries to help Ichihoshi but it doesn't really work. Zhao Jinyun then reveals that Ichihoshi didn't have a brother in the hospital since Kidou Yuuto has waited all day but nobody came to the room where Ichihoshi's brother was supposed to be in. Zhao also reveals that his brother died with his father in the accident, making Ichihoshi more confused. The second half is about to start and Inazuma Japan decides to let Ichihoshi play despite his condition. Can Ichihoshi pull through and find his true self?
