1. Japan vs Costa Rica Preview

It's quite surprising, but Japan starts the second round of fixtures with 3 points after they won with Germany. Therefore, it is justified that they are considered as the favourites in this match. We'll see if they will manage to do so on the 27th of November at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in al Rayyan.

I believe it is a historic moment, a historic victory, to say the least. If I'm thinking about the development of Japanese football, we've been building up. It's a big surprise. We are reaching to the global standard (...). - Hajime Moriyasu, after Japan defeated Germany, PlanetSport

For Japan, it's the seventh WC appearance in a row. Since their long-awaited debut in 1998, they've qualified for every tournament. They've been pretty consistent with their performances as they alternately finished at the group-stage level or progressed to the round of 16 and lost. This year they surprised everyone with their fantastic form and we are curious how they will proceed in the upcoming matches.

In World Championship history, Costa Rica has regularly been just a football curiosity rather than a solid and dangerous team. But in 2014, they achieved their biggest WC success, finishing among the top eight teams. At that time, they did the impossible and shockingly won their group ahead of such classy as England, Uruguay, and Italy. They eventually lost to the Netherlands in the quarter-final, but it happened after a very dramatic penalty shoot-out and a heartbreaking miss by Michael Umana.
