No Japan trip for Inamoto

Last updated : 03 February 2005 By Michael Morris
Japan manager Zico has not called up Junichi Inamoto for Japan's World Cup qualifier with North Korea next week.

City were concerned that the midfielder would have to head to the far east immediately after the West Ham game only getting back at the end of the week just before the massive home game against Brighton.

City are unbeaten in the league in every game Inamoto has played.
