Yoshida is first choice
7:00am Wednesday 5th March 2014 in Football
The centre back, pictured below, has enjoyed an extended run in his club’s team, but has now reverted to his role as a substitute, with Dejan Lovren and José Fonte both fit.
However, Yoshida remains the first-choice at the heart of his country’s back line.
The 25-year-old has returned to Japan this week for today’s friendly, against New Zealand, in Tokyo.
The game marks their penultimate friendly before this summer’s World Cup, where they have been drawn in a group with Colombia, Greece and Ivory Coast.
