Blue Lock episode 24 preview hints at Rin's team getting defeated by World's Best
Blue Lock episode 24, titled The time will come, will resume with a match between Rin's five-man team vs the World's Best.
After Isagi was picked by Rin to join his team, both Isagi and Bachira managed to head to the third selection. However, they were to appear in a 5-on-5 match against some of the world's biggest superstars.
These players included Spain's Leonardo Luna, France's Julian Loki, England's Adam Blake, Argentina's Pablo Cabassos, and Brazil's Dada Silva.
While Isagi, Bachira, and Rin together are able to score their team's first goal, they are gradually set to be overwhelmed by the world selection team as they are on a far superior level when it comes to footballing ability.
Even so, Rin's team will desperately cling to each other and continue to resist until the last second.
As evident from the preview images, it seems the world selection team is set to win against Rin's team, following which the Blue Lock project will progress towards its next phase. Given that the second selection was coming to a close, it was now time for the third selection.
Thus, before the end of the anime's first season, the anime might show the players who managed to pass the second selection's Rivalry Battle. It is yet to be seen as to who is set to miss out.
However, given that Reo Mikage and Kunigami Rensuke were sent back to the second stage, there is a good chance that either of the two is set to be eliminated from Blue Lock.
