Almost Back
Hi Everyone,

Just checking in to let you know that I will be able to resume my regular blog activities starting next week.

Right now, here is the update on the National Team:

The Kirin Cup is starting, with tonight's game against Bulgaria (at Osaka's Nagai stadium) and then the game against Scotland.

The 23-man squad was announced for these two games:

GK
Yoishi Doi, FC Tokyo
Yoshikatsu Kawaguchi, Jubilo Iwata
Seigo Narazaki, Nagoya Grampus

DF
Makoto Tanaka, Jubilo Iwata
Tsuneyasu Miyamoto, Gamba Osaka
Alessandro Santos, Urawa Reds
Yuji Nakazawa, Yokohama F Marinos
Keisuke Tsuboi, Urawa Reds
Shinji Murai, Jubilo Iwata
Akira Kaji, Gamba Osaka
Yuuichi Komano, Sanfrecce Hiroshima
Teruyuki Moniwa, FC Tokyo

MF
Takashi Fukunishi, Jubilo Iwata
Mitsuo Ogasawara, Kashima Antlers
Masashi Motoyama, Kashima Antlers
Shinji Ono, Urawa Reds
Yasuhito Endo, Gamba Osaka
Yuki Abe, Jef United Chiba
Makoto Hasebe, Urawa Reds

FW
Tatsuhiko Kubo, Yokohama F Marinos
Keiji Tamada, Nagoya Grampus
Seiichiro Maki, Jef United Chiba
Hisato Sato, Sanfrecce Hiroshima


The Bulgaria game tonight will see the following starting members:

---- Kubo - Tamada
-- Murai - Endo - Kaji
---- Fukunishi - Abe
Nakazawa - Miyamoto - Tanaka
------- Kawaguchi

pre-bulgaria.jpgAs you might notice, the Kashima Antlers and Urawa Reds players are missing from the starting lineup. This is because they had a game on Sunday (against each other, in which Urawa Reds annihilated Kashima Antlers 4-0) and thus are not fitness-ready for a game two days later. They may substitute in according to the needs of the game.

With the Antlers and Reds players missing, Zico has chosen Endo to move up to playmaking duties -- a first for Endo on the NT.

Bulgaria boasts a team with a great height advantage, and in defense and offense the test for Japan is whether they can and will adjust their tactics and style if Bulgaria comes on strong in the air.

The Japan squad is a full domestic squad, and since everyone has just played three games in the past week for the league already, this week's two games will be a test of their fitness and ability to plow through their fatigue on top of the usual expectations of passing, finishing, and defensive organization.

The World Cup squad will be announced on May 15th. The WC squad is expected to be picked from the pool of the above 23-man domestic players list + 7 players in Europe (H.Nakata, K.Nakata, Nakamura, Takahara, Matsui, Inamoto, Oguro).

おかえりなさい!
depflightさんご無事で何より。ご旅行っていっても仕事がらみでしたっけ?いかがでした?
JリーグはGW中に駆け込みの過密日程で連日大入満員でしたが選手達がかわいそうでした。それでも千葉×浦和の好ゲーム、浦和×鹿島での小野の復活ストーリーなど色々あったようです。
ちなみに海外組、レッドスターの「鈴木タカユキ」が抜けてますよ…。微妙だけど、ジーコは彼の力量をかっているので当選もありえると思います。何より健康体ですしね。
