    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.
