Colombia vs Japan
Tuesday 19/06/2018 | 13:00 GMT | Mordovia Stadium
Colombia lit up the 2014 world on and off the pitch with dazzling displays and it was a standout tournament for James Rodriguez who ended the tournament as top goal scorer. They eventually went out to hosts Brazil in the quarterfinals. Colombia will be hoping for at least the same level progress as a minimum while many are tipping them to go even further, they certainly have the players to do so.
Group H could be considered the most evenly balanced groups of all in this World Cup, there are no extraordinarily outstanding teams in the group, but all the teams are capable of qualifying. Japan could be argued is the weakest team in the group and certainly looking at their recent form suggests so. While Japan have appeared in all recent world cups, they have rarely shown any real intent. Certainly, Colombia are the strongest team in the group while japan the weakest, any positive result for japan would be considered as a bonus for them.
Colombia have developed an effective pressing game that has seen them compete well at the highest levels. Japan too playing a high pressing, high energy game which makes them very difficult to break down but lack potency in the oppositions half.
