World Cup Prediction Colombia – Japan
At Mordovia Arena in Saransk Colombia and Japan compete on the first day of Group H of the World Cup. The Colombians trained by the Argentinian José Pekerman are among the teams that have hidden more than the other cards and in the last weeks of preparation have played only one friendly draw with Egypt for 0-0. The “Cafeteros” are considered among the possible outsiders in the title race, they have great quality even if in the final stages of a World Cup 2018 they never went beyond the quarter-finals, achieved four years ago in Brazil. They are faced with a Japan that replaced the technician Vahid Halilhodzic, author of the qualification, with Akira Nishino and this is certainly an unknown since the new coach until recently had played the role of technical director. In the last friendlies, Japan lost to Ghana and Switzerland 2-0 before beating Paraguay 4-2 thanks to Takashi Inui’s double, Shinji Kagawa’s goal and Santander’s own goal.
