Japan vs Poland Preview:

This is a very big opportunity for Japan to make it to the knockout phase in this world cup as they have showed some great commitment in the game. They were good against Colombia as they bagged a win and they were better against the Senegalese when they came back from defeat twice only to give one point to their African opponent. With the points being tied with Senegal, they are in the advantage because of receiving lesser cards. Poland looks feeble currently in the defense and Japan has an organized attack which would see them through to this match and even if they draw, they are most likely to go through to the next round but they cannot lose in this game.
