Reports coming in that FC Tokyo defenders Yuto Nagatomo and Yuhei Tokunaga as well as midfielders Yasuyuki Konno and Naotake Hanyu have been summoned to the national team's training camp in Chiba prefecture from April 21st to April 23rd. This will be Nagatomo's first time training as a member of the national team. His statement:
To have been selected for the National Team's training camp is an honor. It's because of everyone's support that I am where I am now, and I'm full of gratitude. I look forward to demonstrating my skills at the training camp!
Congratulations to Nagatomo for his first shot at donning the blue kit!
