‎‎Competition: 2019 EAFF E-1 Football Championship

Japan proved that they could play well without key players in the team. In the first match against China, they had an easy game by scoring two goals before conceding at the last minutes.

The next game with Hong Kong was even easier for coach Hajime Moriya and his players. They humiliated the opponent with five goals, three of them scored by Koki Ogawa. He was also the first man having a hat-trick in the 2019 EAFF E-1 Football Championship.

On the contrary, South Korean players' performance was not as good as they were expected. Although they won the first two games, they could not show the level of a world-class team.

Moreover, coach Paulo Bento was harshly criticized because of not having many possible ways to attack. In the match against China, South Korea had 15 shots but they scored only one goal.

Compared to South Korea, Japan had the same point but won thanks to the goals difference. Consequently, they just need a draw to become the champion of the 2019 EAFF E-1 Football Championship, while South Korea must win at all costs.

South Korea vs Japan possible lineups:

South Korea: Jo Hyeon Woo, Kim Young Gwon, Kim Jin Su, Park Joo Ho, Kim Min Jae, Kim Bo Kyung, Ju Se Jong, Hwang In Beom, Na Sang Ho, Son Jun Ho, Lee Jeong Hyeop.
