Japan show us the future..and it's forming?

Japan are blooding them early and we need to do the same.
And yes the J-League is a wee bit ahead of the A-League - tell Adelaide United that - but it's time for the new young Aussies.

Hopefully we're seeing signs of the next generation starting to push into bigger arenas. By 2014 where could they be? And of course playing regularly?

Will they compete at the 2015 Asia Cup - will they get us to Russia 2018?

Adam Federici EPL
Mitchell Langerak Bundesliga?

 Rhys Williams EPL?
Luke De Vere J League?
Matthew Spiranovic J League?
Michael Zullo EreDivision

Brett Holman EPL
Carl Valeri Serie A?
Matt McKay J League
Chris Herd EPL

Robbie Kruse Bundesliga?
Alex Brosque J-League
 Nikita Rukavystya - Bundesliga?

We're lacking a little in attacking nous it seems - but with a Terry Antonis, Mustafi Amini, Tommy Oar, Eli Babalj, Adam Sarota and others pushing hard surely one or two of these guys can crack the full national team in two or three years time.

If we can see one of these young stars moving on to the bigger stage - we should bring them in now and give them a real lift. Predicting stars in football is a hard gig however.

 Is there a Honda or Kagawa in our midst?
