Okada plans to rest Endo, Tamada

Kyodo News

Japan coach Takeshi Okada said Thursday he has decided not to call up key players such as Yasuhito Endo and Keiji Tamada for a training camp set to get under way on Jan. 10 to give them some rest.

"I want to have those players rest for at least two weeks," Okada said after a national team staff meeting in Tokyo.

Endo and Tamada are expected to play in an Emperor's Cup quarterfinal match between Gamba Osaka and Nagoya Grampus on Dec. 25.
