Hajime Moriyasu’s Japan national soccer team has announced its September A match roster.
The Japan Football Association (JFA) announced the roster on Sept. 31 for the September 10 match against Germany at the Volkswagen Arena in Wolfsburg and the September 13 match against Turkey at the Henk Chegeka Arena in Belgium.
The most notable omission from the roster is that of AS Monaco’s Takumi Minamino. Minamino was once a prominent figure in Japanese soccer, playing alongside Hwang Hee-chan at Red Bull Salzburg, but his recent struggles with his club have seen his place in the national team diminish. Despite a recent rebound with AS Monaco, where he scored three goals in three appearances, he hasn’t received a call-up from Moriyasu, and several other players, including Celtic’s Leo Hatate, have not been called up either.
In contrast, right-back Seiya Maikuma, who plays for Cerezo Osaka, was a surprise call-up.
Here’s the full roster for the Japan national soccer team for the two September A matches. 온라인카지노
