Japan midfielder Inui gets embassy introduction

TOKYO (AP) ó Japan midfielder Takashi Inui was introduced by La Liga team Real Betis at the Spanish Embassy in Tokyo after impressing at the World Cup.

The 30-year-old Inui, who played for Spanish club Eibar for three seasons, said he has a three-year contract with Betis.

"Betisí football last season was very attractive for me," Inui said. "I had a strong feeling that I wanted to be a part of the team."

Inui scored two goals for Japan at the World Cup in Russia, and played a major role in helping his team reach the round of 16.

Inui scored in Japanís 2-2 draw with Senegal in the group stage of the World Cup. He got a second goal in his teamís 2-3 loss against Belgium in the knockout stage.

Real Betis says Inui will keep the No. 14 shirt he wore for the Japanese national team.
