Catania's Miramoto needs to get put in this list, or at least in a "recent call-up list".

Well, it's a bit hard since the coach is testing players and testing over again but here something to go with until things get more clear. In the last game for example, the majority of the players were playing for the first time in NT.

GK - Seigo NARAZAKI
CB - Yuji NAKAZAWA ©
CB - Marcus TULIO Tanaka
RSB - Atsuto UCHIDA
LSB - Yuto NAGATOMO
CM - Makoto HASEBE
CM - Yasuhito ENDO
AM - Shunsuke NAKAMURA
AM - Kengo NAKAMURA
AM - Yoshito OKUBO
CF - Shinji OKAZAKI

-----------Narazaki-----------
---NAKAZAWA--TULIO--------
UCHIDA------------NAGATOMO
-------------------------------
-----HASEBE------ENDO-------
---------K. NAKAMURA--------
-S. NAKAMURA-------OKUBO--
------------------------------
-----------OKAZAKI-----------

First post is a good compromise between recently called players and the ones really having a chance to stay in the team. Morimoto started playing for the NT very recently and now that he is on difficulty with his club, I am not sure if he would make it to the World Cup especially considering the numerous options available in attack.

The East Asian Championship will take place in Tokyo within a week and the team will be exclusively composed of domestic players. 26 players were called to play against Venezuela in preparation, if the squad is reduced I'll update the first post with it.

If coach will call only players who plays in Japan, I think it's better to make a "reserved" post about that competition (like I did for african clubs) and put there the 23 Japan-based players. Because I think it's not right to exclude players like S. Nakamura, Honda and Hasebe from first post.

For example I had the same problem with Ghana, because they called lot of youngs for CAN2010 and I had to exclude some important players like Mensah, Muntari or Appiah (just to say someone), but from the next call-ups I must rewrite them because they are regulars for years (I made the error to delete them from first post). So I suggest you to swap only the non-regular players but keep the regular ones (like the 3 "europeans" or anyone who will skip that competition), and make a "reserved" post with full 23 players.

Gave the first post a small update.

Inui & Koroki despite their talent still don't have the mental resources to compete against top teams against the such as the Netherlands according to the coach so they were pulled out from the squad. Ishikawa (known for his very fragile health and non-stop injuries) headed straight to the hospital as usual after few training sessions. Muramatsu was injured too so that's what we have for the 2010 East Asian Football Championship :

Goalkeepers:
1. Seigo NARAZAKI - _jpn Nagoya Grampus
18. Eiji KAWASHIMA - _jpn Kawasaki Frontale
23. Shusaku NISHIKAWA - _jpn Sanfrecce Hiroshima

Defenders:
3. Yūichi KOMANO - _jpn Jubilo Iwata
4. Marcus TULIO Tanaka - _jpn Nagoya Grampus
5. Yuto NAGATOMO - _jpn FC Tokyo
6. Atsuto UCHIDA - _jpn Kashima Antlers
13. Daiki IWAMASA - _jpn Kashima Antlers
15. Yasuyuki KONNO - _jpn FC Tokyo
21. Yuhei TOKUNAGA - _jpn FC Tokyo
22. Yuji NAKAZAWA © - _jpn Yokohama F. Marinos

Midfielders:
2. Yuki ABE - _jpn Urawa Red Diamonds
7. Yasuhito ENDO - _jpn Gamba Osaka
8. Junichi INAMOTO - _jpn Kawasaki Frontale
14. Kengo NAKAMURA - _jpn Kawasaki Frontale
16. Yoshito OKUBO - _jpn Vissel Kobe
17. Shinji KAGAWA - _jpn Cerezo Osaka
25. Mitsuo OGASAWARA - _jpn Kashima Antlers
26. Mu KANAZAKI - _jpn Nagoya Grampus

Strikers:
9. Shinji OKAZAKI - _jpn Shimizu S-Pulse
11. Keiji TAMADA - _jpn Nagoya Grampus
13. Hisato SATO - _jpn Sanfrecce Hiroshima
20. Sōta HIRAYAMA - _jpn FC Tokyo

The competition will greatly determine the local composure of the team taking part in the next World Cup.

New call-ups:

Goalkeepers: Seigo Narazaki (Nagoya Grampus), Eiji Kawashima (Kawasaki Frontale)

Defenders: Yuji Nakazawa (Yokohama F. Marinos), Marcus Tulio Tanaka (Nagoya Grampus), Yuichi Komano (Jubilo Iwata), Yasuyuki Konno (FC Tokyo), Yuto Nagatomo (FC Tokyo), Atsuto Uchida (Kashima Antlers)

Midfielders: Shunsuke Nakamura (Espanyol), Junichi Inamoto (Kawasaki Frontale), Yasuhito Endo (Gamba Osaka), Daisuke Matsui (Grenoble), Yuki Abe (Urawa Reds), Makoto Hasebe (VfL Wolfsburg), Keisuke Honda (CSKA Moscow)

Forwards: Keiji Tamada (Nagoya Grampus), Sota Hirayama (FC Tokyo), Shinji Okazaki (Shimizu S-Pulse), Koroki Shinzo (Kashima Antlers), Takayuki Morimoto (Catania)

According to these names, first post seems very good. I believe coach already decided 90% of WC team.

The World Cup Team would be probably composed of the 23 players currently in the first post. (If we exclude injuries).

A little doubt remains about Morimoto (A must to have but he doesn't play with his club), Hirayama (very interesting profile as a target man/post player but his limits remain : lazy, slow to move and to react) and Okubo (The return of Matsui makes his selection pointless but the coach loves him so much despite his poor performances in the NT).

Unlike many other teams, it seems like Japan will only pick a single central defender (Iwamasa) as a backup for the starting pair since Abe (an additional midfielder/utility player) can play in that position if necessary.
