Antwerp football is on the rise. Both Beerschot and Antwerp make an impression in the Jupiler Pro League and Japan has noticed that. The country will be recruiting in Antwerp for the upcoming international matches.
UPDATE: In addition to Musashi Suzuki (Beerschot) and Koji Miyoshi (Antwerp), Junya Ito (Genk), Daniel Schmidt (STVV) and Naomichi Ueda (Cercle Bruges) have also been called up for Japan. They can prepare for a friendly game against Panama and Mexico.
Both Musashi Suzuki van Beerschot and Koji Miyoshi from Antwerp have been selected again for the national team of Japan. Last month they were also there in the practice camp in the Netherlands for their country.
Suzuki is currently on a roll with the Rats. The solid striker has already scored five times in seven games. Miyoshi feels at home in Ivan Leko’s system. The light-footed flank player blossoms completely at The Great Old.
