Japan moved into the top 20 of the FIFA world rankings after an absence of almost five years.
FIFA world rankings:
Japan's record fourth Asian title lifted them 12 places to 17th, making them the Asian confederation's highest-ranked side.
And Japan's success is not the only one.
European champions Inter Milan made the last-ditch loan signing of Japan left back Yuto Nagatomo from Serie A rivals Cesena just before the Italian transfer window shut on Monday!!
Here is the Inter Milan's top page at that time!!
I'm really looking forward to seeing his play as a member of Inter.
