TEAM Japan SEASON(S) 2009
HOME/AWAY Home COUNTRY Japan
MANUFACTURER Adidas

I know, I know I need to stop buying Japan shirts, I've got loads but this one is so good. Adidas added yellow as a new colour to Japan's home shirt and it works well. The yellow pinstripe is well done and in some ways is similar to the Brazil away shirt which Nike produced the next year for the 2010 world cup. The shirt carries the name and number of veteran Japanese striker Naohiro Takahara who is one of the few Asian strikers to play for an extended period of time in Europe and the only Japanese player to have played (and scored) in Argentina having spent a short time on loan at the mighty Boca Juniors.
