In fact, of the three people who had lost the final match, Sanji Kendo participated in the national team training that began on the 21st, but the team’s four divisions did not even make it into the reserve lineup. It was always the existence of the drinking fountains. Asano Asano was the only one of four forwards who did not play in the match against Ghana yesterday. Although Ikebukuro Iyosuke had a chance to play in the warm-up match, he played as a substitute in the midfield and was not as good as Chaisakiyuki.

It will be very good. I called them because they had hopes to enter the final list, but for now, in their own position, it is not the first choice. I believe that in the future they will still have the opportunity to wear the Japanese national team. The shirt.”

When talking about the goals of the Japan national team in the World Cup, Nishino did not explicitly say that he must qualify. He evaded some of his words and said: “We hope to play Japan’s own football at the World Cup. The specific figures are hard to tell. We will have a game. A game to get points one by one, hoping to qualify for the team.” However, Nishino Long also expressed the hope that after the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, once again reached the top 16.
