And lastSB NationJapan has been continuously improving his skill since the Japan-Korea World Cup in 2002, making it a more powerful team than before when Keisuke Honda had to play in the forward position at the previous event I evaluate it. In addition, Shinji Kagawa is cited as a new star player who emerged after the last competition.

And although it is said that the game against Cote d'Ivoire will be the biggest number for Zack Japan to break through the group league, the ability of Cote d 'Ivoire and Zac Japan is very balanced,It is very difficult to predict Group C's second place, And we are doing.

Looking at the responses of these overseas media, there are many places that highly appreciate the capabilities of Zac Japan, and in particular, both the players Keisuke Honda and Shinji Kagawa who got nominally globally attract much attention I understand. Also, there are many media that highly appreciate Zack Japan's side attacks, and it seems to be wrong to think that the characteristics of the team are well known. As Zack Japan 's weak point of center forwarding is a lot, it may be that inspiring players in this position will support Zack Japan' s pleasure.
