Japan vs Costa Rica Lineup Today;- Japan vs. Costa Rica team predictions, injury updates, and head-to-head, In Group E, The Samurai Blue are in second place while Los Ticos are at the bottom.

Throughout the competition, Japan and Costa Rica have sailed on distinctly different boats. On the first day of play, Japan defeated Germany, while Costa Rica was humiliated by Spain, falling behind 0-7. Currently in control, Japan will try to put Costa Rica away and establish a solid case for the knockout rounds of the FIFA World Cup 2022.

The Samurai Blue displayed tremendous tenacity and perseverance to mount an exciting comeback against Germany in the second half. Due to their strong nature, they pose a genuine threat to any team. Costa Rica can probably turn things around, despite having experienced humiliation.

Players to watch in Japan vs Costa Rica Lineup

Wataru Endo is a player to watch.

Wataru Endo served as the team’s central midfielder in Japan’s historic victory over Germany. Endo won nine ground duels in the middle of the court in his debut game, making seven recoveries, which helped Japan stop Germany’s attack. For Japan, qualifying for the next round might not be a problem if he repeats his form.

Keylor Navas

Keylor Navas played terribly against Spain. Navas wasn’t the only one, though, who contributed to their poor performance in the game. As Costa Rica is on the verge of being eliminated, Navas needs to stand up and take the initiative like he did at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. In this World Cup, Navas has a lot to prove, and his triumph over Japan may have marked the start of his recovery.

Team news and injuries

Japanese team news

When compared to the Japan team that entered the game trailing Germany 1-0 at the break, they had a completely different lineup and personnel. Two wingers played wingback for Moriyasu as he concluded the game, and a front three was positioned behind just two central midfielders, one of whom had an assist.

Although it is unlikely that Japan will launch an all-out offensive against Costa Rica, Moriyasu may be tempted to persist with the back-three that successfully neutralized the threat of Germany’s wide overloads after the break.



Team news for Costa Rica

All of Suarez’s teammates should be available to him. What remains to be seen, however, is how many of the starting XI that Spain executed by a thousand passes (1,045 to be exact) will keep their positions.
