Japan - Colombia (Arena Pantanal ; 17:00)



Japan needs a win plus and Ivory Coast loss (to a Greek team who hasn't scored yet) so it will be very hard for the Japanese to replicate their performance in South Africa. Nonetheless, there still is that chance and small glimmer of hope for them.

My prediction: Japan 0-2 Colombia

Japan has been so disappointed, miles behind the great team of 2010. Realistically, 2-0 win for Colombia.

Colombia should tank. If they draw or win, they'll face the hard-tackling big-biting Charruas instead of the leisurely Costa Ricans in the next round.

Japan will find a way to blow it against a Colombia B/C/D team. A last 16 encounter against Costa Rica is too good to be true.

How reminiscent is this campaign to Japan's 2006 WC?

1st game in 2006: they take the lead against Australia, end up conceding last 3 goals to lose 3-1.

1st game in 2014: take the lead against Ivory Coast, end up conceding last 2 goals to lose 2-1.

2nd game in 2006: crappy 0-0 draw vs. Croatia, Ogasawara misses a chance I would've buried.

2nd game in 2014: crappy 0-0 draw vs. 10 man Greece, 'nuff said.

3rd match in 2006: 1-4 defeat vs. Brazil, Tamata opens the scoring with a lovely worked goal, Brazil score the last four.

3rd match in 2014: 1-4 defeat vs. Colombia, well this just happened.

Hopefully they have a defense in 2018. And a better coach.
