The sixth game of Round of 16 in the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia will be between Belgium and Japan.
The European giants have proved why they are one of the favourites to win the title this time out, by putting on an exhibition of footballing spectacle. The team seems to have no weaknesses at the moment.
Coach Roberto Martinez has hit a masterstroke with the 3-4-2-1 formation. This has enabled him to play his attackers Romelu Lukaku, Dries Mertens and Eden Hazard to play their natural game.
The Red Devils are a force to be reckoned with, and this crop of players are delivering. This just might be one of the first Belgium teams that actually lives up to its potential.
Meanwhile, Japan has had a journey that is filled with drama. The team did win their first game but had had to rely on luck from that point forth.
The Samurai Blue are the only Asian side in the Round of 16, and they represent the entire continent.
However, with the likes of Takashi Inui, Shinji Kagawa and others, the squad has the quality to cause yet another upset along the way.
