Hakim Moriyasu confirmed the list of 26 invitees Japanese team dispute World Cup in Qatar 2022. Japan will be one of Spain’s opponents in the group stage, so it’s time to highlight the main Japanese stars who could complicate the Spanish team at the World Cup.
5 Japanese stars who are worrying Spain ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar
– Takehiro Tomiyasu: The main defensive star of the team. Arsenal’s right-back, who can also play centrally and on the left, is a wall. A football player who is fast, dominates in individual duels, aerial duels and who positions himself very well. To date, he has played 29 games for the Japanese national team.
– Wataru Endo: One of the foundations of the team’s midfield. The center back, who can also play as a centre-back, is a fundamental figure in the system for Stuttgart, be it 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1. He will come with a lot of continuity in German football. He will bring a lot of experience as he has 43 caps for the senior team.
-Daichi Kamada: One of the most creative playmakers of the selection. He has 11 goals and 3 assists for Eintracht Frankfurt at this point in the season in European football along with two goals in the UEFA Champions League. He plays as a midfielder or second striker. He has 21 games and 6 goals for the Japanese team.
-Takumi Minamino: One of the biggest names, but not coming at his best. The Monaco striker, who can play in all three offensive lines, has only 1 goal and 2 assists in 13 games played at the beginning of the season. But it is still a part to consider. He has 43 games and 17 goals for the Japanese team.
– Takefusa Kubo: One of the young Japanese promises of today. The midfielder, who can also play as a winger on both sides, is the team’s most differential player due to his ability to participate in the game and in the last part of the field. He has 2 goals and 4 assists at this point in the season for Real Sociedad. Despite being only 21 years old, Kubo has 19 caps for the senior team.
