At the Al Nahyan Stadium in Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates, will face Turkmenistan. The start of the meeting is scheduled for 9 am (Brasília time).The key also counts with the selections of Uzbekistan and Oman. After three rounds, the top two will secure a berth in the Round of 16. Whoever has the third place will also have the possibility of moving forward. However, you will need to submit one of the best four campaigns in comparison with the third parties from the six groups in the first stage.
The Japanese did not participate in the qualifiers for the Asian Cup. They did not have to. The rules of the tournament dispense with teams that advanced to the final stage of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers for that requirement. Japan came very easily up to this stage and went beyond. He secured his place in the World Cup by scoring 20 points (six wins, two draws and two defeats) securing first place in Group B.On Russian soil, his performance was better than the order. He made his debut by beating Colombia 2-1, drew 2-2 with Senegal and clinched a 1-0 defeat by Poland on the final round of the first round. In the Round of 16, however, he did not resist Belgian favorites. They gave work, but lost by 3 to 2.Despite the above expectations campaign, the Japanese Federation decided to promote a reformulation in the post-world team. For that, he put the head coach Hajime Moriyasu ahead, who was putting aside a number of veterans and revitalizing the cast. Initial results were promising.Of the five friendlies made after the World Cup, he collected four victories and one draw. The successes were against Costa Rica (3 to 0), Panama (3 to 0), Uruguay (4 to 3) and Kyrgyzstan (4 to 3) and equality against Venezuela (1 to 1).
The second round of the Asian qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia was the limit for the selection of Turkmenistan. With 13 points (four wins, one draw and three defeats), the team stopped in third place in group D being overtaken by Iran (20 points) and Oman (14) leaving behind Guam (7) and India (3).This performance forced the team to play in the Asian Cup qualifiers to secure a place in the United Arab Emirates. He came in second place in Group E. He added ten points (three wins, one draw and two losses) behind Bahrain (13) and out of contention Taiwan (nine) and Singapore (two).The preparation for the final tournament had only one friendly game. After leading 4-0 from Bahrain on 27 March for the final round of qualifying for the Asian Cup, Turkmenistan’s national team returned to the grasslands on Dec. 25 to play their match against Afghanistan. Won by 2 to 0.
This will be the first game involving the selections.
Football Prediction of the Day Japan vs Turkmenistan
Group F is considered, at least in theory, one of the most balanced of the Asian Cup. Although the Japanese team is one of the favorites in the title, Uzbekistan and Oman show consistently friendly results. Thus, Turkmenistan presents itself as a kind of ‘bonus selection’. That is, who can not add the three points before her will have serious problems to reach the round of 16. The performance of the Japan team indicates that this does not appear to be a threat. In this way, the prognosis in the victory of the Japanese is the most suitable for the confrontation that opens the schedule of games of Wednesday in the Asian Cup.
