The coach stated his objective of the tour as ‘to strengthen the team by playing against two powerhouses’.
Vahid HALILHODZIC, Coach of SAMURAI BLUE (Japan National Team)
We will meet two powerhouses, Brazil and Belgium, and also must consider that we have a chance of being in the same group with either of these teams in the World Cup. We cannot be intimidated or feel that we are inferior to them. Instead, we have to play to our strength with courage. It is not an easy task, but we have nothing to lose as well. I believe that this might facilitate us to do our job at hand. We further think that our defence will be challenged in both matches. Hard work is a must defensively. For example against Brazil, we are faced with the question of who are going to mark the three excellent attackers up front. Additionally, they have midfielders with strength on the ball. We need to be tenacious in one-on-ones in midfield as well. This is not the end of our story. In attacks, we need to have players who can make a number of sprints regardless of the possession of the ball. We need not only to create open space but also exploit it effectively. Team chemistry can be only be attained through training together.
The Belgian team have a completely different playing style and I consider them to be mostly a ‘power-driven’ team. However, I must add that they have players with distinctive characteristics, including those who have both physical strength and pace, and can time perfectly to avoid an offside and create scoring chances. We are required to defend against the side that have the capability of threatening us in multiple ways. I must say that any weaknesses we show during the game will be exploited by both Brazil and Belgium and we simply cannot allow that to happen as well. We further need to find better ways to communicate among the teammates and must be organised and focused as well as having courage and competitive spirit to achieve a daunting task to challenge and win against these two powerhouses. I expect that we are going learn tough lessons from playing these matches. However, we must not stop there, but capitalise on them. We still have eight months for the World Cup. Hopefully, we are taking the right path and making a good preparation before entering Russia.
NISHINO Akira, Technical Director of JFA Technical Committee
It is the second training camp since Japan booked a ticket to the FIFA World Cup. The team will play test matches in Europe against two powerhouses, namely Brazil and Belgium. We found many tasks through playing two matches in Japan in October. We have different members in the team since October and are faced with different challenges this time as well. Both opponents are ranked top ten in the world by FIFA and I expect tough matches from two excellent teams. However, I also believe that we will learn our current standings and be able to make the necessary changes to strengthen the team for the subsequent training and matches.
