CUIABA, Brazil (AP) -- Japan playmaker Shinji Kagawa has been recalled for his team's must-win Group C match against already-qualified Colombia at the World Cup on Tuesday.
In the Asian champions' only other change, Toshihiro Aoyama replaces fellow midfielder Hotaru Yamaguchi. Yuya Osako drops out for Kagawa, who started on the bench in Japan's 0-0 draw against Greece last time out.
Japan needs a victory in Cuiaba to stand any chance of overhauling Ivory Coast, which is two points ahead in second place and plays Greece simultaneously.
Colombia: David Ospina, Santiago Arias, Carlos Valdes, Eder Balanta, Pablo Armero, Fredy Guarin, Alex Mejia, Adrian Ramos, Juan Quinetro, Juan Cuadrado, Jackson Martinez.
