Japan head coach, Hajime Moriyasu, has just announced his 24-man squad for November fixtures. Kento Hashimoto and Takuma Asano have been added to the squad for Japan’s friendly games against Mexico and Panama next week. The head coach equally included Yuto Nagatomo in the team.
Asano has secured his place in the squad because Yuya Osako sustained a knee injury playing for Werder Bremen’s last match. At the same time, Hashimoto was included in the team because of his fine form since joining the Russian club Rostov from Tokyo in July 2020.
