Japan National Football Team info
Japan's soccer/football team has seen mixed results in recent years. In 2014 they were the first team to qualify for the Football World Cup, only to crash out without a single win to their name. With ex- Algeria coach Vahid Halihodzic at the helm, hopes are high and Japan certainly has some world-class players in the squad. Many of Japan's star players play abroad in the Bundesliga or the Premier League, Borrusia Dortmund's Shinji Kagawa is a prolific goalscoring midfielder, ex AC Milan player Keisuke Honda, now playing in Australia, is still one of Japanese football's poster boys. Youto Nagatomo, who plays for Inter in Italy, provides security and experience in defence and Eiji Kawashima is a safe pair of hands in goal. Known for playing creative, technical football, what Japan lacks in physicality it makes up in creativity. Get international football tickets to see Japan and savour a richly rewarding matchday experience.
Japan National Football Team history
Japan initially made a big impression on the international stage with a bronze medal at the 1968 Summer Games in Mexico City inspired by legendary striker Kunishige Kamamoto who finished as top scorer at the games with seven goals to his name. However, due to the relative weakness of the Japanese league, it would take thirty years before the national team qualified for a Football World Cup. With the restructuring of Japan's football league into the J. League, Japan saw the quality of football improve dramatically and was also able to attract world-class players and managers to ply their trade in Japan. With this, the national team also improved measurably and European leagues were fighting each other to sign players like Hidetoshi Nakata who played for Roma, and Shunsuke Nakamura who had successful spells at Celtic and Reggina.
