FIFA World Cup 2010: Japan 23 Man Squad

Japan have named their 23 man squad to travel to South Africa for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Coach Takeshi Okada has selected a predominently Japan based lineup, with a few key figures from European clubs making up the rest of the squad, including Daisuke Matsui, who plays for Grenoble, in France, who will play an important role for the Japanese in midfield.

Japan will feel there is an opportunity to progress from their group, Group E, which also contains Netherlands, Cameroon and Denmark.
