Lucky11| FIFA World Cup| Japan Squad Analysis
The 26-man roster for the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar has been unveiled for the first time by Japan. The World Cup month has already begun, and the event will begin in a few weeks.
Several former members of the Japanese national team are on Hajime Moriyasu's team, including defender Maya Yoshida and fullback Yuto Nagatomo. Together, the two players have 258 caps. Additionally, Brighton attacker Kaoru Mitoma and Arsenal fullback Takehiro Tomiyasu are both part of the lineup. Takefusa Kubo, a youthful forward for Real Sociedad, is also named to the team despite being out with an injury right now. But the youthful forward is expected to be healthy and ready for the competition.
Among the many goalkeepers Moriyasu could choose from, the seasoned keeper Eiji Kawashima stood out as an obvious choice. Daniel Schmidt and Shuichi Gonda were the other two shot blockers that received the nod.
Kosei Tani, Keisuke Osako, and Zion Susuki, for example, would have ultimately been left out.
Prior to the World Cup, Japan's defensive talent pool will include a combination of youth and experience. Takehiro Tomiyasu, one of the Japanese hopes now competing in the Premier League, was also a given, as was the presence of veterans Yuto Nagatomo and Maya Yoshido on the flight to Qatar.
Additionally, athletes like Ko Itakura and Hiroki Ito have all traveled to Qatar. Meanwhile, the aspirations of Ayumu Seko, Sho Sasaki, Shinnosuke Hatanaka, Naomichi Ueda, and Sei Muroya to perform in Qatar were abruptly dashed.
While Yuta Nakayama was included in the first squad, he was later forced to leave because of an injury sustained while playing for Huddersfield.
Japan will rely on attacking midfielder Takumi Minamino of Monaco, who has played for Liverpool and Southampton in the Premier League.
Reo Hatate of Celtic and Genki Haraguchi of Union Berlin will be upset not to have made the squad, but Wataru Endo and Daichi Kamada will always have been confident of making it as well.
The Real Sociedad wonderkid Kubo and the Celtic forward Daizen Maeda are fascinating attacking alternatives for Japan's excellent team, even though his club teammate Furuhashi was somewhat unexpectedly left out. Although they won't be on the plane, Yoshinori Muto and Yuya Osako will have both hoped to travel to Qatar.
The World Cup group for Japan is E. Spain, Costa Rica, and Germany are also members of their group. On November 17, six days before their first encounter against Germany, Hajime Moriyasu's team will play a friendly match against Canada.
