Japan vs Chile predictions, group stage of Copa America 2019

Japan brought Copa America this time 17 players who never wore the national team. However, a young Samurai team is absolutely not an opponent easily to be bullied, especially for a Chilean football team no longer at the peak.

The Chile football team is judged by experts to be the fifth brightest candidate in the Copa America this time. However, most fans understand that it is a habit-based statement. The Chile team actually lost a lot compared to the two-year team that consistently won Copa America (2015 and 2016).

The peak of the decline is that Chile did not even win tickets to the 2018 World Cup. Since then, before the 2019 Copa America, Chile has made friendly matches with 13 opponents. But the results of friendlies also made fans more pessimistic, when the Chile football team only won 5 matches. In the past two years, Chile has lost to rivals in theory that is much weaker than them like Mexico, Peru, Costa Rica, Romania.

The past two years, the Chile football team has never reformed. This year, they came to the Copa America with the same set of players almost 2 years ago. Still the old names such as Alexis Sánchez, Arturo Vidal, Charles Aránguiz, Eduardo Vargas, Gary Medel ... The old lineup, the old style, but the quality of the stars in the Chile squad has greatly decreased.

Typically case of Alexis Sanchez. In the past year, the striker has fallen so badly that he has been judged by England experts as the most unsuccessful contract in Man United's history. Alexis Sanchez earned about 33.5 million pounds of salary from Man United but made a terrible contribution.

In the opposite extreme completely, Japan brings Copa America staged entirely new players compared to the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup finals. In the list, there are up to 17 Japanese players who never wore a jersey. The most familiar name of the Japanese player at this tournament is striker Shinji Okazaki.

Japan considers Copa America to be an experiment. They look forward to launching a new generation next to Maya Yoshida, Yuto Nagatomo, Shinji Kagawa... However, with Japanese personality, testing does not mean walking. In the eyes of rivals, Japan at this tournament is a blank sheet of paper, an unpredictable unknown. Chances are that the Chile football team will be the first victim of the young Samurai.
