Japan vs Venezuela match information

Time: 18:25 (GMT+8) on November 19th

Venue: Suita City Stadium

‎‎Competition: International friendly

It is not uncommon that Japan is dominating the World Cup qualification now. They won 4 games to fortify the leading place in Group F, with 6 points more than the second position. Moreover, they did not let their opponents score any goals.

The level between Japan and Kyrgyzstan or Tajikistan is too large. As a result, Japanese players can relax for a while when other teams fight for a better place in Group F.

Playing against Venezuela in a friendly match will be a good chance for them to test new tactical systems. In previous matches, their defenders played well but they were just weak teams. Venezuela is relatively different because its players are faster and stronger than Asians, so Japan can experiment with new players in the squad. It will be necessary before kicking-off the 2019 EAFF E-1 Football Championship in December.

On the other hand, Venezuela also has an impressive form in current matches. After drawing Colombia in September, they defeated Bolivia and Trinidad and Tobago last month. Facing Japan in a friendly match, Venezuela does not need to play with all of their strength. However, they also do not want to lose because it can affect their performance in the following matches.

Japan vs Venezuela possible lineup:

Japan: Yamashita, Shimizu, Kumagai, Ichise, Sameshima, Nakajima, Miura, Sugita, Endo, Sugasawa, Iwabuchi

Venezuela: Farinez, Hernandez, Chancellor, Villanueva, Rosales, Savarino, Herrera, Moreno, Rincon, Murillo, Rondon.
