Koji Akiyama on the players that were selected to the roster:

Being a title holder [was an important factor].  And within that, young players with bright futures.  Chances to play in international games do not come very often.  I think their experiences playing for Samurai Japan will lead to their successes.  We kept that in mind when making our selections.
