Japan are not expected to advance beyond the Group stage of the Qatar World Cup this season, but if they are underestimated, they could spring an unexpected upset. Japan almost defeated Brazil earlier this year, and their defensive abilities are strong this time around. Japan also have a good mix of midfielders in good form. Their ability to overwhelm veteran opponents has been demonstrated by their aggressive style of football. Results can sometimes tell you a story about how a team performs, and Canada have won only two of their five games despite playing serious and effective possession football and creating chances, drawing with Bahrain and ending in a 2-2 tie.

Possible Lineups

The Japanese side will be without the services of Ao Tanaka, Takehiro Tomiyasu, and Wataru Endo, while Canada will be without their star performer Alphonso Davies in their arsenal for the friendly against Japan.

Canada possible line-up: Borjan, Miller, Vitoria, Johnston, Hutchinson, Laryea, Eustaquio, Kaye, Osorio, David, Larin

Japan possible line-up: Gonda, Sakai, Yoshida, Yamane, H. Ito, W. Endo, Morita, J. Ito, Minamino, Kubo; Asano
