Taniguchi books a place at Beijing

Frontale midfielder Hiroyuki Taniguchi has been named among the 18 players who will represent Japan at the Beijing Olympics in August.

His inclusion may come as a surprise to some, especially with the likes of Celtic's Koki Mizuno and Urawa's Tsukasa Umesaki being left out of the side. However, coach Yasuharu Sorimachi has emphasised the importance of tenacity and undying commitment in his young Olympians - and in these areas there is no questioning Taniguchi's prowess.
