Japan never reached the final8. Japan lost against Turkey with Troussier and draw against Paraguay with Okada. Now we have an interim coach and one of the candidate to the final victory as the opponent. If Japan will go through this it will be historical, something that will never happen again for decades and something that will shock the world of football. Imo there's few ways for Japan to reach an astonishing result as this: a 10 vs 11 men as against Colombia, Kawashima totally ON FIRE as in the friendly against France or a PERFECT teamwork by any player on the pitch and one the bench too. But let's say I'll be happy even with a defeat if we play as we can, scaring Belgium as hell and ending the match with 2 or 3 goals.
