After coming from behind to shock Spain in their last group game, Japan will look to claim yet another major scalp at the 2022 World Cup finals when they face Croatia in the last 16.
The Samurai Blue are high on spirits ahead of Monday’s clash, but they will have a big fish to fry against Zlatko Dalic’s troops.
Midfielder Ritsu Doan, who scored as a substitute against La Roja, should be recalled to the starting XI, while defender Ko Itakura serves a one-game ban.
Meanwhile, the Croats booked their place in the knockout stages thanks to a goalless draw with Belgium.
Luka Modric and Co. were producing fine displays in Group F, and seeing that Zlatko Dalic has a full squad to choose from, we are tempted to put our money on the European side.
It has to be noted that the two teams played out a goalless draw at the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals.
This match will be played on 05/12/2022 at 17:00
Prediction: Away to Win.
