Sapporo Dome will host Thursday’s friendly between Japan and Paraguay, the two teams who met at the 2010 World Cup finals.
Back then Paraguay defeated Japan on penalties, but the Samurai Blue are seen as favourites to beat the South American outfit this time out.
A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Liverpool ace Takumi Minamino, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line.
Anyhow, Japan boss Hajime Moriyasu will use June friendlies to test as many players as possible.
La Albirroja, on the other hand, missed out on a spot at the showpiece tournament in Qatar. Since Paraguay are not regarded as good travelers, we are tempted to put our money on Japan, who proved their worth in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
The Blue Samurai defenders should have Newcastle United star Miguel Almiron, who is eyeing his 45 cap for the national team.
This match will be played on 02/06/2022 at 11:00
