Japan will face Spain in their World Cup Group E match on Thursday, 1 December 2022, at 19:00 GMT. Here’s how to watch Japan vs Spain live stream free online.
Japan unexpectedly lost to Costa Rica in the second round and lost their chances of making the playoffs. Now the team will have to face the real favourites of the quartet, who are unlikely to perform half-heartedly in the final match of the group round. They have experience in similar encounters, but their opponent is certainly too strong for such an important game.
Spain proved that they were considered the main force in their group and, even with not the most intense football against the Germans, quietly took one point and stayed on top. They are good on all fronts and it is already clear that they will compete with the other favourites for the title in Qatar. The Spaniards will likely play with their usual strength in the final round, especially if they want to extend their winning streak.
The Japanese need only victory over Spain to guarantee qualification from the group, which their opponent will understandably try to prevent. Spain is superior in every aspect, and they will go into the match looking for only three points.
