Japan team news and form: Japan don’t impress

Yes, Japan did defeat Korea DPR in their last official outing, but they didn’t really impress anyone with their display. The result on the scoreboard after 90 minutes of play was 2-1 in their favor, but the statistics prove it was anyone’s game for the taking. Korea had more shots on target, but Japan saw more of the ball.

Predicted lineup: Yamashita (GK), Shimizu, Takahashi, Minami, Kitagawa, Kumagai, Fujino, Hasegawa, Nagano, Ueno & Tanaka

Player to watch: Alex Morgan

We can all agree that Alex Morgan will be the most influential player on the pitch at Merecedes-Benz Stadium, right? The 34-year-old attacking midfielder is close to the end of her professional career, but we are sure that she’d like another go at the SheBelieves Cup title this year.

Prolific Morgan will make an impact

Alex Morgan is historically speaking the best player that ever played for the USWNT. She has what it takes to prove our USA vs Japan predictions correct, and we can’t see her perform at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
