Why Japan would win?
If there is anything we have learned in the previous matches in FIFA World Cup 2010 is that lower ranked teams can win games against high profile opponents. Take Switzerland vs Spain. Serbia vs Germany. A draw by Algeria vs England.
Japan is riding high on their win against Cameroon and coach Takeshi Okada is putting Honda again on the attacking side hoping to score another goal and win on their side.
Why Netherlands would win?
The last time these two teams competed with each other the Dutchmen scored three goals against none for Japan. Netherlands is not just a high profile team but they have already proven they can demolish this team. Netherlands are not taking any chances and they would be coming off blazing.
This is a crucial win for both these teams that would assure them of a place in the next round. We should see an exciting match. On the contrary, if Netherlands gets in the groove, Japan might get demoralized and this match could turn into a shooting range for the Dutchmen.
