Japan is one of the surprise teams in the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Since their debut, they managed to surprise by beating Germany 2-1 in a game they managed to keep a cool head, despite the pressure the opponent was putting on them. They started losing after a penalty kick in favor of Germany, but two goals were then scored by Ritsu Doan in the 75th minute and Takuma Asano in the 83rd minute.

The second match was against Costa Rica, in which they ended up losing with a goal in the 81st minute, despite having managed to handle the game well and contain it.

The third match was against Spain, yet another surprise for the Japanese team! La Roja’s artillery was not enough to defeat a very strong Japan that took the match 2-1. The heroes were Ritsu Doan in the 48th minute and Ao Tanaka in the 51st minute, who not only gave their team a place in the round of 16, but also the top of the group.

Undoubtedly, they advance to the Japan vs Croatia match with a lot in their favor. However, they will face a strong opponent in a very tough match that may see minutes of extra time.

In the first match, the Croatian team played against Morocco, and despite being able to hold the ball, they did not have enough space to score and create a score difference. The game ended 0-0, with each team walking away with a single point in their favor.

The second match was against Canada, and despite conceding the first goal, they came back with four goals throughout the game, showing strength and constancy, as well as the ability to create dangerous plays despite a score that, initially, was not in their favor. In this match, Andrej Kramaric scored a brace in the 36th and 70th minutes, Marko Livaja hit the net in the 44th minute, and Lovro Majer’s goal came at 90′ + 4′.

The third match was against Belgium, and although they only managed a draw, it was enough for them to advance as second in the group, leaving out those who were in the field with them, accumulating only one more point.

In Japan vs. Croatia, they will face off in a match that will likely be played at a much higher level than what they experienced in the first phase. A cool head is essential in the search for a good result
