Ayase Ueda after being called up for the World Cup with Japan: "Thanks to my performances at Cercle I have this chance"

Ayase Ueda can get ready for the World Cup! Our attacker got the news on Tuesday morning, as Japan under national team coach Hajime Moriyasu became the first country to announce its final roster.

It will be the first World Cup for 24-year-old Ayase Ueda; he's already won ten caps for the national team.

"I am very happy that I have been called up to play for Japan and that I am part of the squad that will participate in the World Cup," Ueda said in his first reaction. “The past 4 months as a player for Cercle have certainly helped me to put myself in the spotlight with the national team coach. Cercle therefore certainly has played an important part in my selection.”

The FIFA World Cup will take place between November 20 and December 18 in Qatar. Japan have been drawn in a tough group E with Germany, Costa Rica and Spain. “The World Cup is an important tournament for every footballer. Playing and succeeding at a World Cup is something that will be a memory for an entire career. I will therefore do everything I can to put myself in the spotlight and contribute to Japan's success at the World Cup," said Ueda.


Good luck, Ayase!
