JPN vs CRC Match Preview

Japan have started this World Cup confidently with an incredible winning result of 2-1 against Germany. Though İlkay Gündoğan opened the scoreline with a successful penalty for the four-time World Cup champions, Ritsu Dōan (75’) and Takuma Asano's (83’) second-half goals helped the Asian team to end that game with a dream victory. Talking about the Japanese team, one of their strength is that the team don’t rely on a few players for scoring goals, as most of their players have the potential to score at crucial moments.

On the other hand, Costa Rica had a disappointing performance against Spain as they suffered a thrashing 7-0 defeat in their tournament opener. However, it was their only second defeat in this calendar year. So, we can expect a good comeback from them to prove that their performance against Spain was just an accident. Anyhow, it is their must-win game to stay alive in this tournament.

It will be the fifth official meeting but the first World Cup meeting between Japan and Costa Rica. While the CONCACAF side hasn’t beaten Samurai Blue once yet, the AFC side has already recorded three wins against Los Ticos.
