    Japan's opponent in the semis is Saudi Arabia. A repeat of AFC u-19 2016 Final!

    We are getting pummelled by bloody Saudis. Their MF is so darn good. Saito not playing certainly doesn't help either.

    From what I can see, Japan NT seems to be playing in a slightly different formation than usual if I am not wrong, they are playing with 3 at the back today.
    The players seem to be a little not used to it. Also, the usual starters like Kubo and Miyashiro, etc. played as substitutes today.

    On another note, I am not really very impressed with Mikuni, he does not seem to react very quickly to situations imo.

    Yep, we played 3-4-3.

    With a wide FW didn't cover Saudi's Fullbacks well, we're got outrunned in the flank easily. when Saudis managed to penetrated our final third, our defense shape was already pulled in the ball side without proper covering on the opposite flank, this is happen over and over again because we were always losing 1 on 1 duels.

    When Saudis pass the ball on the opposite flank, our defence were already carved open.

    Wakahara's mistakes certainly didn't help.

    The only positive thing today was Kubo.

    I watched the game vs Spain too, I liked Oda and Nakayama.

    Btw today Kashiwa at Al Kass meets... Real Madrid. Yes, once again.
    They drew with PSG and lost with Roma in the group stage.

    Not much personally, given the big absences.
    Player-wise I'm looking forward to see what Miyashiro, Nakamura and Koki Saito will be able to do on the big stage.

    Japan drew 1-1 against Ecuador in the opening game.

    Good start considering that Ecuador are the South America champions as they defeated Argentina and Colombia and drew with Brazil in the process.

    It was a much even game, with Ecuador slightly had the upper hand in terms of individual skills and physicality while Japan had the upper hand in terms of team-play and drive.

    Ecuador was more dominant in the first half while Japan was more dominant in the second.

    Japan conceded an unfortunate own-goal few minutes before the half-time whistle, and GK Wakahara successfully saved an Ecuador PK in the second half, before Kota Yamada scored the equaliser for Japan.

    Japan could have won the match in the second half, but the bad finishing and the players’ attitude to rush their shots prevent them from securing a valuable win.

    Seko in the central defence, Higashi in the RB position, Mitsuki Saito in CM, and Jun Nishikawa in the attacking midfield all had very good performances tonight.

    Tagawa was Japan’s worst performer tonight, I wish the coach will test Taichi Hara in his place next match or even Kento Nakamura.

    Jun Nishikawa played way too great providing he is just 17, especially in the physical challenges against a physically superior team like Ecuador, unlike some of other players who backed-off when facing physical challenges despite being 3 years older than Nishikawa.

    Japan’s Group is pretty daunting, with Ecuador the South American champions, Italy UEFA’s runner-up, and Mexico CONCACAF’s runners-up, not to speak about Italy’s and Mexico’s rich tradition in international football.

    It might be the group of death in this tournament, and Japan is viewed as the weakest in this group, so getting few points in this group even if they didn’t qualify will be good.

    Next game will be against Mexico who lost earlier today against Italy, a win against Mexico will most likely assure Japan of a place in the last 16, so let’s hope Japan will work on their shortcomings for the next 2 games and gave us an entertaining performances and proceed to the knock-out stages.

    Hopefully they can at least play good enough so that scouts will notice some of them.

    thanks for your thoughts, i missed this game.

    tagawa is in absolutely terrible recently. considering he is the veteran of the last u20 wc maybe they thought he would lead the way. i was surprised hara was not even selected in the first place. mizuki ando should have been picked ahead of hara.
