Japan are missing several key players as they have been rested at the end of a long, hard club campaign but that hasn’t stopped a dismissive start to their summer internationals. They have scored 27 goals in their last three matches without conceding against South Korea, Mongolia and Myanmar. They are now up against a Tajikistan side that are the best of the rest in Group F in second-place. They will be confident of holding onto that spot but Japan will expect to win this quite comfortably and continue their six wins in six matches with 37 goals and none conceded so far in the group.
Japan will host Tajikistan at the Suita City Football stadium in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Monday.
The home side come into this game on the back of a 10-0 thrashing of Myanmar last week. Yuya Osako was the star of the show with five goals, while Takumi Minamino also got in on the act with a brace.
Tajikistan played out a 2-2 draw away to Thailand. Suphanat Mueanta scored a brace for the hosts to put them two goals ahead but Tajikistan clawed back to snatch a point late on.
Japan have already secured their progress to the third round of the qualifiers having garnered maximum points from six matches played. Tajikistan are in second spot.
