Japan coach Vahid Halilhodzic has hinted ADO Den Haag forward Mike Havenaar is in line for a recall to the national side.
Halilhodzic, who is currently on a scouting tour through Europe, said Monday that he spoke to the out-of-favor Japan international following Saturday’s 2-2 home draw to Roda JC Kerkrade.
“I met him in person after the game,” Halilhodzic said in comments released through the Japan Football Association. “He told me how he wants to keep improving as a footballer and how he feels about playing for the national team.
