Here are the players to watch out for:
Keisuke Honda: He has been involved in seven of Japan’s last 10 World Cup goals (four goals and three assists).
Kosuke Nakamura: Veteran goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima has made costly errors in consecutive matches and may be replaced by 23-year-old Kosuke Nakamura.
Kamil Glik: Experienced defender Kamil Glik made his comeback from a shoulder injury as a substitute against Colombia and may return to the starting line-up.
Robert Lewandowski: The captain will be desperate to perform well today.
