Tamada and Honda Called Up for Bahrain Game

Grampus striker Keiji Tamada and former Grampus midfielder Keisuke Honda have been called up for Japan's Asian Qualifier against Bahrain on January 28th. No place for defender Shohei Abe this time, which may be a good thing since he needs to recharge his batteries for the new season.

Honda is having a good season in the Dutch second division, having scored 10 goals so far this season. (If my Dutch is OK. Of course, I may have doubled things, if it isn't.:-)) He will also have benefitted from having a slightly less intense season. This should see him looking more refreshed than he has for the last couple of years, when has was playing in every Grampus and Japan U-23 game, and the occasional national team game.

I run the FC Tokyo-centric blog Aishiteru-Tokyo.com, just swinging by to show the colors and let you know I've added you to my links. Looking forward to another good pair of games against Nagoya this year!
