    It is a game and something that gets fun when you look at it 4 years later. The principle is simple, guess Japan's XI at the 2018 World Cup (+ substitutes if you want to push). You can make different predictions over the years but try not to make too many, that would denature the gist of this thread. Let's see who are the real visionaries.

    "Someone" or ??? is not an acceptable answer.

    manager: me.

    jokes apart: it's fun but there are so many things that could happen (I'm not even talking about injuries, but mostly players changing clubs) that I would be throwing names, I'll try in 2016 to be a little more realistic.

    We're past halfway through and almost qualified (or eliminated). Post your teams gentlemen and let's see how much they changed since 2014.

    Poor team.

    Maruoka was a common name on the bench or in the starting 11. He was in his Dortmund times. Played decent in some games for them, but now :(

    not at all, people were just fantasizing on him. Who can say anything about Maruoka's strengths or playing style ? None because no one has seen him play,except NaohiroTakahara who saw a good blend of Iniesta and Mascherano in him.
