Squad Comparison


After cruising through round two with an almost perfect record, Japan has again looked strong in the third round of Asian World Cup Qualifying, winning four of their six games so far in the campaign, despite suffering an opening 1-0 loss to Oman. Hajime Moriyasu’s team bounced back instantly when they took on China in the first group meeting between these two sides. Yuya Osako netted the only goal of the game in Qatar before they were again harmed by a 1-0 defeat. Former Inter Milan defender Yuto Nagatomo is the most experienced member of Japan’s 23-man squad to dispute January’s qualifiers. Arsenal defender Takehiro Tomiyasu was initially included in the squad but pulled out due to injury.

The Samurai Blue then met heavily-fancied Australia in a crucial clash, and they came out on the right end of a 2-1 victory thanks to Ao Tanaka’s early goal and a late own goal from Aziz Behich. Moriyasu’s men have since built on that with back-to-back 1-0 wins over Vietnam and Oman, with Junya Ito netting the decisive goals in each of those. As a result of their strong rebound, Japan sits a point ahead of Australia in third place, and, with two teams earning guaranteed qualification to the tournament later this year, they will be keen to add a fourth straight victory to strengthen their bid for a seventh consecutive World Cup appearance.

Japan Playing XI

Gonda; Yamane, Sakai, Ueda, Nagatomo; Shibasaki, Endo, Tanaka; Ito, Osako, Minamino


They take on a China side with a much slimmer chance of progressing after a tough start to the third round, with the visitors beginning by losing to Australia and Thursday’s opponents. While they bounced back with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Vietnam thanks to a Zhang Yuning goal and a Wu Lei brace, including a 95th-minute winner, the Dragon’s Team have been unable to add another win, falling to a defeat to Saudi Arabia by the same scoreline in the aftermath. Coach Li Xiaopeng named a final 28-man squad to dispute January’s qualifiers against Japan and Vietnam, dropping several others after a training camp in January.

After commendable 1-1 draws against Oman and Australia, with Wu Lei scoring in each, they have kept their hopes alive, but with Australia sitting six points ahead in the playoff place and Japan leading them by seven points, Li Xiaopeng’s men will know they need to post a run of victories to still stand a chance. With just four games left to play, Thursday must act as a turning point for the Dragon’s Team under the new management of Li Xiaopeng as they look to reach a World Cup for the first time since 2002.

Match Prediction for Japan vs China

Even without several crucial defenders, Japan boasts the stronger of the two squads, and, with the added motivation of staying in the top two, we fancy them to get over the line with home advantage. The Samurai Blue’s front three are bound to cause problems for their visitors and Ito, Osako and Minamino should fire their nation to another qualifying win.

Japan is already in a prime position to secure one of the two automatic spots for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and a win here would keep them in the running. Although China could cause an upset, the Blue Samurai have the superior players and we are backing the hosts to secure maximum points with a comfortable victory.

Japan 2-1 China, predicted by us.
