Japan vs Venezuela match information

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

Venue: Suita, Japan

‎‎Competition: International friendly series

Japan national football team is familiar to COMMEBOL opponents, as this team drew Uruguay and Ecuador at Copa America 2019. So if Japan play with the strongest and most determined force, they will find it not difficult to beat Venezuela.

However, it is worth mentioning that Japan has met Venezuela 4 times from 2010 to 2018 in the international friendlies. All those four matches Japan are much appreciated than their opponents from South America but they ended up being tied.

At the moment, Japan is playing very well with 4 consecutive wins in the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifying round in Asia, scoring 13 goals without conceding.

However, what is more concerned is that like the previous confrontation, Japan did not call their best players to play this match. A series of key Japanese footballers such as Shinji Okazaki, Ayase Ueda, Ritsu Doan, Wataru Endo, Junya Ito, Maya Yoshida, Hiroki Sakai was crossed out.

Coach Hajime Moriyasu is actually still taking matches in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers to test because the opponent in Group F is too weak to them. In the list of 23 Japanese players who are focusing this time, there are 13 players who just play in the national team's shirt under 10 times, the majority of them are in the U23 age group.

Meanwhile, on the other side, Venezeula called up the best players to prepare for the upcoming match. In October, Venezuela won all friendly matches against Bolivia and Trinidad & Tobago. Playing against a Japan team without the best force, Venezuela can get a win.
