Japan will look to take another impressive scalp at the tournament when they face Croatia in the last-16 match

2022 World Cup giant killers Japan will look to take another impressive scalp at the tournament when they face Croatia (JPN vs CRO) in the last-16 match on Monday at the Al Janoub Stadium. 

Japan – The Samurai Blue are far from finished, as evidenced by their 1-0 loss to Costa Rica on matchday two, but they could now advance to an all-Asian quarter-final against South Korea. Japan has yet to reach a World Cup quarter-final.

Croatia – The Checkered Ones enter the last-16 clash on a nine-game unbeaten run across all tournaments and have advanced from both of their previous ties at this stage of the competition. Still, Dalic’s side can take nothing for granted against Japan’s counter-attacking machine.
