The Japan national team match against the Myanmar in 1e ronde of the AFC 2026 World Cup Qualification on Thursday, November 16, 2023 will be held at the Panasonic Stadium Suita Stadium, Suita.
Japan will host Myanmar at the Tokyo Olympic Stadium on November 16 2023 in the continuation of the AFC World Cup qualifiers. Japan has ensured qualification for the third round as group winners, while Myanmar is still struggling to avoid bottom position.
This match will be an opportunity for Japan to maintain their perfect record and increase their confidence ahead of the next round. Myanmar will try to put up the strongest possible resistance and improve their bad record.
Japan is a much stronger and more experienced team than Myanmar, both individually and collectively. Japan has a fast, aggressive and creative style of play, with many players who can create and score goals.
The players of the team nicknamed Samurai Blue have a lot of experience playing in top European league competitions, such as Takumi Minamino (Liverpool), Yuya Osako (Werder Bremen), Daichi Kamada (Eintracht Frankfurt), and Takehiro Tomiyasu (Arsenal).
In contrast, Myanmar is a team that is weak physically, technically and tactically, with many weaknesses in the back and midfield. Myanmar also lacks motivation and a winning mentality, because they no longer have a chance to qualify.
Myanmar also does not have players who play abroad, but they have mainstay players such as Lwin Moe Aung, Aung Kaung Mann, Nay Moe Naing, and Soe Moe Kyaw. Lwin Moe Aung was the top scorer for Myanmar in the competition with two goals.
With all the team’s advantages, Japan is considered to be able to win three points in the second round of Group B of the Asian zone World Cup qualifiers. Myanmar is expected to find it difficult to develop their game and can only defend as hard as possible.
