Akinori Nishizawa
Club:Cerezo Osaka
Position:Forward

Nishizawa always looks happiest playing on home soil, as a poor spell at English Premiership side Bolton Wanderers showed.

He will turn 26 at the tournament and should celebrate by making the starting line-up.

Has been a regular force for Japan and has averaged a goal every three games with the international team.

But many had thought he was due to miss out on this summer's festivities following an operation on his appendix.
