Competition: 2020 AFC U23 Championship

Japan U23 is considered to be the most remarkable name in this tournament. As hosts of the 2020 Olympic Games, they receive a special ticket to the next round. This means that if Japan U23 reached the semi-finals, all three remaining teams will participate in the Olympics without a third-class match.

Japan U23 comes to the 2020 AFC U23 Championship with the aim to win the title. They have a long-term plan to train and go deep at the Olympic Tokyo 2020. However, the opening match in this year's tournament made many fans question the power of the 'Mini Samurai'.

On the first matchday, the Japan U23 team entered the opening match against U23 Saudi Arabia in group B. After 90 minutes, Japan U23 lost 1-2 to the West Asian opponent. Even when Man City's Meshino shone, Japan U23 could not avoid the loss to the weaker-rated opponent.

On the other side of the battle line, Syria U23 had a very dramatic opening match against Qatar U23 despite being led by 2 goals. By playing with brave and tenacity, coach Ayman Alhakim's team leveled that gap with 2 consecutive goals by Abd Al Rahman Barakat and Ahmad Daliin the last minutes.

Japan U23 vs Syria U23 possible lineups:

Japan U23: Osako, Watanabe, Okazaki, Koga Taiyo, Daiki, Tanaka Ao, Tanaka Shunta, Hashioka Daiki, Meshino Ryotaro, Hatate, Ogawa.
