Japan formed a completely different squad from the roster that went to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
First, Daniel Schmidt (Sint Trawiddon) was selected for the goalkeeper position, but Osako Keisuke (Sanfrecce Hiroshima) and Tani Kosei (Gamba Osaka), who were not included in the Qatar World Cup, were named. The defense has also changed drastically. Maya Yoshida (Schalke 04) and Yuta Nakayama (Huddersfield) were excluded, while Daiki Hashioka (Sint Trawiddon) and Ayumu Seko (Grasshoppers) were included.
Midfielders and attackers did not change much. Including Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton), Daichi Kamada (Frankfurt), Doan Ritz (Freiburg), Daizen Maeda (Celtic), and Takefusa Kubo (Real Sociedad) were named.
However, Kyogo Furuhashi could not be found on the list this time either. Kyōgo is exploding with 26 goals in all competitions this season, including 20 in the Scottish Premiership. However, following the last World Cup in Qatar, he was not selected by coach Hajime Moriyasu in this March’s A-match list.
