So two weeks to go before the big road trip for Japan NT. - Tsuneyoshi Miyamoto will miss the trip after falling into the shower door after the draw vs Kobe in which Gamba blew a 2-0 lead in the last 20 minutes. - Zico will call up all 11 former and current national teamers in Europe. Includes regulars Nakata, Nakamura, Ono, Inamoto, Yanagisawa, Takahara and Suzuki, as well as Kawaguchi, Hiroyama, Fujita and Toda, the last 3 receiving their first call ups since Zico took over. - Zico will not call up players from Urawa, Shimizu, Iwata and Kashima because of conflict with the Nabisco CUp semifinals. This includes Tsuboi and Yamada (Urawa), Alex, Ichikawa and Morioka (Shimizu), Hattori and Fukunishi (Iwata), and Ogasawara, Narahashi, Akita, Motoyama, Sogahata and the injured Koji Nakata (Kashima). - With Miyamoto's injury and the absence of Alex, Tsuboi and Yamada, Zico will field an entirely new backline from the past 4 games. Let's hope he uses this opportunity to try some new players like Araiba..
