2022 FIFA World Cup R16 Croatia Vs Japan: Live Stream, Match Timings & Preview

Smaller and not-so-favourite teams were hit hard at this World Cup, and so was Japan. Hajime Moriyasu’s team beat both Spain and Germany. After defeating former 2014 World Cup winners, Japan suffered a disappointing loss to Costa Rica. As Spain was expected to win the match easily, the Germans believed they needed to win against Keylor Navas’ man to advance to the Round of 16. But to everyone’s surprise, Japan was victorious over the 2010 World Cup winners.

This year Zlatko Dalic has been a quiet tournament for men. Drawn their first match against Morocco in a goalless fixture, Croatia scored a goal in the early stages and won their debut against Canada. Belgium were their opponents in the final group match, where the match was a goalless draw, and Croatia finished second in the group to qualify for the 16th knockout round.

2022 FIFA World Cup R16 Japan Vs Croatia: Preview

Japan defender Ko Itakura has been suspended from a critical draw after receiving a second yellow card in the match against Spain. Takehiro Tomiyasu is battling his injuries to be fit enough to take part in a full 90-minute game against the Croats, where his playing style and experience will play a crucial role for the Japanese front and back line.

The scariest thing surrounding the Croatian side is if they have to make it to the quarterfinals Luke Modric and Dejan Lovren are shown the yellow card, so neither will be absent. Despite almost no roster rotation by the manager, there are no injury concerns surrounding the team as the players give their best performances.
