Japan vs Canada Lineups & Team News
As we stated earlier in our Japan vs Canada prediction, coach Hajime Moriyasu’s boys did beautifully to record four back-to-back wins recently. And Japan had some difficult opponents against them. The likes of Germany, Peru, and Turkey come to mind. Japan were not the better of the two teams in the match against Turkey, but coach Moriyasu’s boys still managed to bag four goals for the 4-2 win at Cegeka Arena.
Predicted lineup – Nakamura (GK), Maikuma, Taniguchi, Machida, Ito, Tanaka, Ito, Doan, Kubo, Nakamura & Furuhashi
The below-mentioned players were not the ones we got to see during the CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament. However, these are the best players that the Canucks have, and we are confident they’ll give a sturdy defiance against our Japan vs Canada prediction. After all, with these starters, Canada had 65.0% possession against USA in the match on the 19th of June.
Predicted lineup – Borjan (GK), Johnston, Kennedy, Miller, Laryea, Kone, Eustaquio, Osorio, Davies, Larin & David
Player to Watch: Keito Nakamura
Japan’s Nakamura is rightfully the player to watch in our Japan vs Canada prediction. He bagged two goals for Japan in the match against Turkey a couple of weeks ago. We are certain that he has the right stuff to bring success to coach Moriyasu this week. Keito scored both goals in the match against Turkey in the first half of the game. Perhaps he’ll do the same against Canada this week as well. Keito Nakamura is operating on the left side of the wing, and that’s a spot coach Moriyaso doesn’t have plenty of options in front of him.
