The IRA vs JPN match preview –

The business end of the AFC Asian Cup 2019 begins as Iran meets Japan in the semi-final of the tournament on Monday. Iran will be looking to continue their sensational form into this game as well. Unbelievably they still haven’t conceded a goal so far and if all goes well it will be down to the brilliance of all the players. They are one of the best teams in Asia and want to showcase that this generation has finally aged and are ready to take what they rightfully believe is theirs.

Meanwhile, Japan too has made their way to the semi-final deservedly. They have won important games but it has been a difficult journey so far. The team is arguably the most famous Asian side in football, but they have had a tough time with injuries. However, their main striker is finally fit and it might be the turning point for the nation in this tournament.
