The JPN vs TUR match preview –

The AFC Asian Cup hosts a group game between Japan and Turkmenistan as the two teams play their first game of the competition on Wednesday. Japan is the most famous team who has played international football from Asia. They are playing fantastically as well and with some of the new players been selected for this particular tournament, the expectations are high for the side. Japan went the farthest in the FIFA World Cup 2018 out of anyone in Asia, and are one of the favourites to clinch the AFC Asian Cup 2019.

Meanwhile, Turkmenistan’s resume fails in comparison to their competitors. They are still relatively young in international football. The team is adapting to the modern tactics and it will be after some years when they become competitive enough to contest for trophies. A lot has to be done for that to become reality. First and foremost is giving the naturally talented players the platform, and that is exactly what they’ve done in this tournament.
