They lost a shock 0-1 at home to the weakest opponent in the table, Oman. Although there was a victory in the second round, the “Samurai” also struggled to overcome China with the minimum score. Japan’s play still shows stalemate, the cohesion between the stars is very limited. With the fluctuating performance at this time, Japan is likely to lose on the field of Saudi Arabia.
