Hmm, I have a little trouble figuring something out. In the end of the chapter, Tsubasa is about to start the 6th match day of the La Liga. So does Golden 23 start straight after Road to 2002 or is this an year later? It's a bit odd, considering almost everyone had matches for their clubs and suddenly they leave for a training camp. Especially considering most proved to be very important players for their clubs, did the clubs leave them to train for the Olympics or is the J League in some sort of pause at this time?
Read the last chapter of road to 2002 and you will see that golden-23 resume things exactly where they were left (press conference and tsubasa at the beach). Kira mentioned the desire to focus on their own club team as a reason for not coming to the training camp, so it's safe to assume that the 2nd stage of the j-league isn't over.
