Japan vs Australia: Preview

Japan have looked a bit rusty in the early stages of the final round of the World Cup qualifiers and finds itself in the third position in Group B after the first three matches. They have suffered two defeats against Oman and recently against Saudi Arabia which has hampered their progress to the top of the table. They claimed a slender 1-0 victory against China in September and need to be at their lethal best to come up with a positive result on the day.

On the other hand, their opponents, Australia have had a dream start to the final round of qualifiers, and have won all of their matches so far maintaining a 100 percent record. The island nation have scored 7 goals in their three games and are defensively very solid as well. Needless to say, they hold the top spot in the final round of qualification in Group B and are looking ominously poised for a spot in the coveted World Cup next season.
