Player name spelling “traffic slogan”

In the 43rd minute of the first half, Japanese FW Daizen Maeda (25′) scored the first goal of the tournament. However, last season’s runners-up Croatia leveled the score ten minutes into the second half with Perisic’s header.

We beat Germany (4 times World Cup winners) and Spain (1 time and beat the World Cup champion. Also, if you think about ‘overcoming’ instead of ‘catching up’, the future will change.”

In the past, Japan had nothing to do with the World Cup, but with the launch of the J-League in May 1993, the level of Japanese football has improved significantly. At the USA World Cup tournament, he was one step away from participation. In October 1993 against Iraq, it was the ‘Doha tragedy’ when the score was leveled just before the end of the match.

However, in November 1997, as a “Johor Bahru delight”, Masayuki Okano, a wild man, scored the winning goal and decided to participate in the World Cup for the first time. However, Takeshi Okada, the coach at that time, removed “Kazu Miura” (Kazura) from the national team and lost all three matches in the group stage. In the 2002 Japan-Korea tournament, Japan, led by coach Troussier, scored their first point by drawing with Belgium. He defeated Russia and Tunisia to enter the final tournament for the first time. However, they lost to Turkey and did not advance to the final eight. At the 2006 German tournament, they were eliminated from the group championship without even winning a single match. Subsequently, they were unable to break the best 16 at the South Africa tournament in 2010, lost in the group stage of the Brazil tournament in 2014, and the best 16 at the 2018 Russian tournament and the “best 8 block”.

However, this year’s World Cup has already become a “traffic slogan”. “Safe driving with a disciplined mind even in December” (Kumamoto Prefectural Police, refer to Mr. Ritsu Doan), “Check left and right even at the blue signal of the intersection” (refer to Mr. Midori Tanaka).
