Komano's Belgium move hits buffers

Kyodo

Japan international Yuichi Komano looks set to stay with Jubilo Iwata for the coming season after failing to secure a move to Belgian first-division side St. Truiden, a club official said Sunday.

The two-time World Cup defender had undergone a medical and looked set to join Truiden but negotiations failed to produce a deal.

A solid defender who can operate on either side of the back line, Komano, 30, famously missed a penalty in the shootout as Japan was knocked out in the second round of the 2010 World Cup by Paraguay in South Africa.
