Japan coach Alberto Zaccheroni will have a full-strength squad for the team's 2014 World Cup qualifying matches against North Korea and Uzbekistan next month.

The Italian coach included European-based strikers Shinji Kagawa, Keisuke Honda and Shinji Okazaki in his 23-man team announced on Thursday.

Kagawa, who plays for Borussia Dortmund, scored two goals in Japan's 3-0 victory over South Korea in a friendly this month in Sapporo, after being sidelined from internationals for seven months with a metatarsal injury.

Captain Makoto Hasebe will once again marshal the midfield for Zaccheroni, who is unbeaten in his 13 matches as Japan coach.

Japan will play North Korea on Sept. 2 in Saitama in its first Group C match, then travel to Tashkent to take on Uzbekistan on Sept. 6.
