BetisTOIt is disputed until February 1
Betis could lose Takashi Inui throughout the month of JanuaryAfter the Japanese national team decided to urgently summon him to the final phase of the Asian Cup, which takes place in the United Arab Emirates, due to the injury of two of the players who were concentrated with the Nipn team.
Shoya Nakajima, from Portugal's Portimonense, and Hidemasa Morita, from Kawasaki Frontale, have had to leave the Japanese 'stage' for injury and instead,the selector Hajime Moriyasu has quoted the bic Inui, who carry the number 10in the competition, and Tsukasa Shiotani, from Al Ain.
The Japanese team has been concentrated since last December 26to prepare the competition and play their first game next Wednesday, against Turkmenistan. Their second meeting of the group stage will be on January 13, against Omn, and the third, on day 17, against Uzbekistan.
If Japan were to overcome qualifying rounds,Inui could be absent from Betis until the final, on February 1 at Zayed Sports City Stadium. Undoubtedly, an important and partly unexpected setback for Setin, who had the international Nipn for this heavy month of January with the idea of moving forward in their integration in the team.
