Workhorse Hasebe leads Japanese troupe
The Bundesliga could almost single-handedly field a Japanese team, save for the goalie and central defenders. And captain Makoto Hasebe plies his trade in Wolfsburg. A midfielder who's versatile, tireless and technically adept, it's easy to see why Hasebe leads the Japanese. Even Felix Magath, a taskmaster so hard as to be loathed by many stars, extended Hasebe's Wolfsburg contract when in charge.
