Japan National Team gets good results in friendlies

Japan National Team has 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss in friendly matches

 

 

Japan National Team which failed to qualify for the Asian Cup has gotten passable results as four wins, one draw and one loss so far in this season.

 

But they are mere friendly matches, so the results in the qualifiers of the last season are regretted.

Against Paraguay

The only one defeat is the match with Paraguay, and two Japanese defenders got injured in the match.

 

When Okada got injury, Japan had already used three substitutes, so after that they had to play a man down and conceded three goals.

 

As a result, Japan lost the away match 4-1.

Against Ukraine

Japan opened the match which they entertained Ukraine with Tokunaga‘s goal in the 6th minutes, but their lone striker Omori was sent off the field with a red card in the 11th minutes.

 

Although therefore Japan played without forwards for 80 minutes 90, they added three goals and got a thrilling 4-2 win.

Young players got chance

In these friendlies, relatively young players were given opportunities to play, then these four players who have not played in official international matches stood on the pitch; Takiji Honda (25 years old), Keisuke Yamaguchi (24 years old), Junnosuke Kato (23 years old), Hirofumi Nishizawa (22 years old).

 

 

In particular, maybe attention was paid to Kato and Nishizawa.

 

 

Kato is lacking in ability to play as a regular for the national team yet, but his future is expected to solve the problem which Japanese defense line is too aggressive.

 

 

Nishizawa who came off the bench and found the net twice for only 15 minutes in the match with Oceania is also a promising player.

 

However, he have to contend with Masayuki TokunagaKazuki OmoriHiroshige Igawa and Tsumemasa ‘TM’ Morishige for the position from now on, he need much more effort to take the place in the national team.
