Japan v Latvia Football Match – 06.02.2013 – Friendly Match Preview
Japan v Latvia Football Match will be in 06.02.2013 at Kobe, Japan. The match will start at 12:00 with GMT. Japan National Football Team is one of the strongest teams in Asia. They have quality players in squad and they are playing at important teams of Europe. They guaranteed to join World Cup 2012 with 13 points in group. They have 8 points difference with second team in group. I believe they may get success in World Cup 2014 with their current squad. Current head coach Alberto Zaccheroni called up all their important starting line up players. Yuto Nagatomo from Inter Milan, Atsuto Uchida from Schalke 04, Maya Yoshida from Southampton, Hajime Hosogai from Bayer Leverkusen, Keisuke Honda from CSKA Moscow, has been called up squad for friendly against Latvia National Football Team.
Latvia National Football Team couldn’t do much in 2012 world Cup qualification matches. They even beat Liechtenstein hardly in their home match with 2-0. They have lost against Greece, Slovakia and Bosnia in group matches. I believe there’s no hope for Latvia in WQ. Latvian head coach called-up a few new players and experienced players to squad against Japan. Kaspars Gorkšs from Reading, Aleksandrs Cauņa from CSKA Moscow, Artjoms Rudņevs from Hamburg will play against Japan and these players are the most valuable players of Latvia at the moment.
Match Prediction: Japan Wins
