Bachira was impressed by Isagi and Rin’s game and started questioning his own abilities. When the match resumed, Aoshi passed the ball to Rin, who then passed it to Aryu. Bachira got the ball and started doubting himself, seeking guidance from his inner monster. Meanwhile, Chigiri appeared and stole the ball, and Nagi encouraged Bachira to believe in himself and his skills.

This motivated Bachira to recall why he loved soccer and not rely on his inner monster anymore. As Isagi tried to score a goal but was blocked by Rin, Bachira decided to play solo, using his dribbling skills to outmaneuver everyone. Though he couldn’t score a goal, he realized he could play on his own, like he did in his childhood. Finally, Isagi managed to stop his goal attempt.
