How good is Jamaica? Do they really "need" the European-based players?
That's not the point.
This is a friendly match and the result is meaningless. In the article it says that Zico is looking to keep the World Cup squad together as much as possible.
i wanna see the new formation with current full squad but one game is definately not enough to make a judgement.
I think Jamaicas' full national team is quite good. they have some wonderful technical players, many that play abroad in MLS and Europe. If they bring their full National team Japan might deem the result an upset. fitness will pay the decider
Jamaica's no pushover but I wouldn't go that far. Japan has improved dramatically since 1990 while the Reggae Boyz have gone in the opposite direction.
Five players who will be called back to Japan are:
H. Nakata (Parma)
Kawaguchi (Portsmouth) will not be called back as he is not expected to play.
These give players will also be back for the Argentina match on November 20.
Fulham aren't happy about the Inamoto call up since they have to play Manchester United on 10/19, so there's a chance he won't be fit.
Feyenoord have some important games and Ono seems to have a tight schedule. Is he coming back to Japan for this game?
According to Zico, he is.
Feyenoord plays at Vitesse on the 19th, 3 days after the Jamaica match, then travels to Dynamo Kiev on the 23rd for a Champion's League match.
