Kintarou can also play vs Smith or some other American super rookie if one appears.
USA are gonna be the No.1 aren't they even if they ain't.
@ Kaoz: LOL You added Kaji. His fanbook said he's essentially retired. Tanegashima/Irie would be an interesting pair. I don't think they've actually interacted much though.
EDIT: Might as well ask at this point: Who does everyone else think will be part of Japan's top 10 in the WC?

To me, it looked like Konomi only introduced Kaji to make Oni look beast.
To answer your question, I don't think Kintaro is good enough for the G10, so I wouldn't include him. I would include Ochi (Mental Pressure), Atobe (most developed character), Niou (best doubles partner you can have when at full health), Byodoin, Oni, Irie, Tanegashima, Tokugawa (when he recovers), Duke, and Omagari (because of his Nitoryu).
i remember early scanlations of the manga showed kaji asa 2nd or 3rd year junior high.
i was like WTF jr high in U-17 Genius 10? that would have been EPIC skills.
then someone told me it was wrong . and i LOL'd ( i recall, other HSers saying how can a JR high get in the camp, meaning kaji couldn't be)
S1: The Pirate.
S2: Tanegashima (Really wanna see Shuuji in singles ;; )
D1: Newly Revived Nio posing as Echizen/Akutsu
D2: Duke/Kimijima (just because there needs to be a pair that makes no sense)
S4: Kin Chan or Oni
Fuji as an alternate.

Like some one else mentioned earlier in this thread about another sports manga that had players leaving Japan to be in other teams I see that potentially happening with the U-17 World Cup arc as well. I think that would be pretty sweet to have old players resurface on new teams with new skill sets. That would be an interesting mechanic,not only a new team to face but potential old foes. Like kintaro joining team china or something just to play ryoma in an official match. Tezuka playing for team Germany has already been suggested. I also wouldn't be surprised if certain characters followed ryoma to be on team USA as well like momo and kaidoh. The whole situation of not having citizen ship is true but you have to remember this is a cartoon, they hit the ball with magic, they don't have to make sense when it comes to certain players changing teams lol. Hell they probably won't even explain how they did it.
Tokugawa can join whatever nation he was at before he came back to Japan.
Keep in mind Krauser was on the U17 camp and I'm pretty sure he doesn't have Japanese citzenship at all.
^ France I think.
Good 2nd point.
so do you guys think that konomi will focus the story on echizen Bros only or will he do both E bros and the U-17 .
if E Bros, join american team; konomi may have to create new chars and new skills on the american team.
Eventually team E bros are going to meet the japanese U-17, and then ryoma probably gonna defeat mr pirate.
When the time comes for Ryoma to verse Byodoin, it'll be Yukimura vs Ryoma 2.0. When he's losing, he'll activate PoP and pull through. That's how the character is, when he's struggling, he'll pull through with some miraculous technique.
Konomi is yet to on-screen an official match between the exact same opponents. He never has and I doubt he ever will. That'd just be horrible.
Yukimura VS Ryoma will probably never happen. He might do something annoying like Yukimura VS Sanada 2.0 though, with Sanada somehow winning and having Konomi completely undermine the character he created in Yukimura.
Or he'll have Tezuka off-screen Yuki before Ryoma VS Tezuka.
I'm extremely baffled in terms of final boss of the series now though. It could EASILY be either Tezuka/Byoudouin/Ryoga.
No matter who the final boss is, I really want Ryoma to lose at least one official match, Maybe he'll finally understand what it feels like. I mean Tezuka lost 2 official matches, Fuji lost to Shiraishi, Momo lost a few, The Golden Pair have. If Ryoma lost his first official match, maybe I'd tolerate him more.
