They were qualified for the 2014 World Cup as the CAF third round winners. They had beaten Senegal 4-2 in a two legged play-off as well as they topped a group with a (4-2-0) record. For Japan, this is their sixth trip to a World Cup. In the qualifying round of World Cup 2014 they topped the Asian section ahead of Australia with a (5-2-1) group record. But they stepped to the round of 16 in two World Cups of 2010 and 2002. Although they have some fine players like Shinji Kagawa, Keisuke Honda or Shinji Okazaki, surprisingly Japan is ranked as low as number 48. They can find themselves matched up with tricky opponents in Ivory Coast. There is a real chance to beat Japan for African team Ivory Coast and advance to the knockout round.

Players to watch:
The most recognizable player on the Japanese squad is midfielder Shinji Kagawa of Manchester United. With Kagawa he key man for Japan will be AC Milan playmaker Keisuke Honda. The pair is capable of scoring from anywhere. Besides these two legendary players Japan’s top scorer Shinji Okazaki is heading into the World Cup.
For Ivory Coast:
Ivory Coast’s key player for 2014 World Cup will be midfielder Yaya Toure of English Premier League side Manchester City. He’s fast. He’s strong. He’s a nightmare defender. He’s an offensive mega-threat. The dominant midfield figure of Yaya Toure can become as a driving force for his country. It is undoubtedly proven that he is at the absolute peak of his career. Didier Drogba is also seems to be so dangerous at the field.
Head to head:
These two sides have played against each other three times in competitive matches with Japan winning twice and Ivory Coast taking the other one. The matter of good sign for Ivory Coast is that there isn’t one player in the Japanese side that can be consistently relied upon for goals. So there is a chance for the Africans to rule over the Japanese.
A very close calls this one between two very talented sides both. Both of the team can come out as winner but it is assumed that Japanese are more close to the win as they have Shinji Kagawa.
Look out for betting on this high tensed match of 2014 FIFA World Cup but think againg about the present form of both of the team squads.
