SAINTS striker Tadanari Lee has been named in the Japan squad for Wednesday's World Cup qualifier against Uzbekistan.

The 26-year-old will link up with his international teammates following today's Championship trip to Watford, after he was selected by coach Alberto Zaccheroni.

Japan's match with Uzbekistan, which takes place in Toyota, is a dead rubber as both nations have already ensured a place in the final round of Asian qualifiers.
