The JPN vs URU match preview –
Asian Giants Japan will be putting their two-game winning streak on the line as they host Uruguay in an international friendly game on Tuesday.
Japan are one of the most successful teams coming out of Asia. They are a side who has been known to give it their all regardless of the result. In the recent FIFA World Cup 2018, Japan almost pulled out the shock of the tournament by ousting Belgium. This team still has some talent and has a long way to go in becoming one of the heavyweights of the footballing world.
Meanwhile, Uruguay are already a side that has a fearsome reputation in international football. Coach Oscar Tabarez has worked tirelessly with these players to make them defensively sound. He has succeeded in doing that task, but now the team is a bit disjointed. Football is all about finding the right mixture and combination, and maybe these set of international friendlies will help Uruguay in finding that balance.
