Watch Iraq – Japan Live Streaming 11.06.2013
It is an interesting matter that a troubled country like Iraq is able to field a national team in a world cup qualifier match. To be within the first 100 of the FIFA world ranking is itself an achievement for the Iraqis. They meet a powerful Japan in a qualifier on the 11th June in Doha, Qatar. The choice of Doha may be due to the condition in Iraq. It is safe to assume that the Doha match will be considered as the home match for the Iraqis and away match for the Japanese. Japan holds the 32nd rank in the world. It will be interesting to see how the underdogs Iraq tackle the powerful Japan.
For the Japanese it does not make much of a difference whether the match is played on a home ground or in a foreign country. Even then their record at home is slightly better than in away matches. Interestingly, their losses and draws in away matches have been equal. The same is the case with the Iraqis for whom wins are also in the same proportion. During the season Iraq has played 14 matches and Japan has played 13. Therefore both the teams can be expected to be match fit. On ahead to head to basis in qualifiers Japan has 1-0 record against Iraq.
Both teams are good in defense with clean sheets being high. This is also reflected in the goals scored against goals conceded, even though Japan has a better record. Knowing their strengths, Japan can be expected to go all out for a win scoring as many goals as possible which will help in the final reckoning for a place in the World cup. Japan has players who have gained experience of playing along with international stars because of their playing England and in Continental. One can expect Japan to have a clean sweep in the match.
