The last Asian side left in the tournament, Japan will be taking on Poland at the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia. The game will be played in a crucial matchup of Group H.
Japan started the tournament with a flier by defeating a 10-man Colombia by 2-1. Those three points were crucial for the side, and the added another point by showcasing a gritty performance against Senegal. They came from behind twice to level the scoreline and assert their intents of qualifying for the Round of 16.
The Samurai Blue has been in a good-knick, and are a tough team to beat. They don’t succumb to pressure and charge down the line with ferocity. They have creative midfielders with the likes of Shinji Kagawa and Takashi Inui, who have been causing problems for the opposition defence.
Poland has already been eliminated from the group stage and will be playing this game for pride.
If the luck wasn’t on their side in the first game against Senegal, it was their fault completely when they got outplayed by Colombia. A 3-0 scoreline is a jarring margin at this level of football, and the team needs to introspect themselves and what the represent.
Their captain Robert Lewandowski is yet to score in this competition and has become one of the biggest reasons for the lapses of concentrations Poland has faced. It is a travesty that the team as talented as this European side hasn’t been able to register a single point on the board.
With Senegal and Colombia clashing at the same time as this game, the result of Japan vs Poland can have huge ramifications in who qualifies and who doesn’t.
