Diary

Thursday, 20 May 2004 - Japan coach Zico named a 25-player squad for the friendly tournament against Iceland and England.  His one surprise was the exclusion of Hidetoshi Nakata, who was nursing a sore groin. 

Friday, 21 May 2004 - Naohiro Takahara is a major doubt after complaining of chest pains and is rushed to a Manchester hospital to undergo tests.  Norihiro Nishi has withdrawn because of a knee injury.  Shunsuke Nakamura, Toshiya Fujita and Tatsuhiko Fujita are all struggling with minor injuries.

Sunday, 30 May 2004 - Japan take on Iceland in the opening game of the FA Summer Tournament.  Japan win the game 3-2 with two goals from Tatsuhiko Kubo and an Alessandro Santos winning penalty.

Monday, 31 May 2004 - It has been confirmed by Doctors and Officials that Naohiro Takahara has a lung infection.  A relapse of a disorder that kept him out of the 2002 World Cup finals.
