USWNT Rival Watch: Japan’s Algarve Cup Roster w/ Stats

Here is Japan’s Algarve Cup roster, with player stats as of 20-Feb-2012. The stats are from JFA’s website (see link after the roster), but that page is not in a user-friendly table format, so I have collected those statistics, below.

Notes:

  • Heights have been converted from centimeters to inches (1 cm is .393700787 inches) and weights are in pounds, converted from kilograms (1 kg is 2.20462262 pounds). With standard rounding (if .5 or greater, round up).
  • For the goalkeepers, it appears that they list “Goals Allowed” as a negative number in the “Goals” column.
  • Players are listed by position, then by last name.
