Biography[change | change source]

Sasaki was born in Fukushima Prefecture in 1891. After graduating from Tokyo Higher Normal School, in May 1921, he became manager for Japan national team for Far Eastern Championship Games in Shanghai. He managed 2 matches at this competition, but Japan lost in both matches (1-3, v Philippines[1] and 0-4, v Republic of China[2]). These matches are not counted as "International A Match" because Japan Football Association was not founded yet.[3]

After the retirement, Sasaki became professor and he taught at Utsunomiya University, Fukushima University, Chukyo University and Japan Women's College of Physical Education and so on.

On July 23, 1982, Sasaki died of lung thrombus in Suginami, Tokyo at the age of 91.
