Japan have extended national football coach Alberto Zaccheroni's contract with a view to having the
Italian guide the Asian champions through the 2014 World Cup
finals in Brazil, according to local media reports.
The 59-year-old was appointed in August 2010 on a two-year
contract with the provision of an extension. Under his
leadership Japan won a record fourth Asian Cup title last year
and are through to the fourth qualifying round for Brazil.
Japan's football association had offered him a one-year
rolling contract which would be terminated if Japan failed to
make it to Brazil, the Kyodo news agency reported.
