Lennie gets his way over Inamoto
There was a fear that Japan would invoke the 4 day rule on the call up of players but as February 9th is a designated friendly date Japan can only take up a 48 hour option. Lennie has been in talks with Japan coach Zico.
Now it loks as though Inamoto will miss the two friendly games scheduled for Japan to play next week and then he will play against West Ham before flying immediately to Japan for the Korea match.
"I've been told Inamoto will fly out after our game at West Ham and I'm delighted with that situation because he's in exceptional form right now," said Lawrence.
Cardiff also have a Finnish player on international duty. Midfielder Tony Koskela has been caled up for the Finland U21 squad.
