What both teams have done so far in the tournament?
Mexico should feel devastated after the missed opportunity to meet Spain at the final. Mexico lost by penalties but already impressed the whole football society. The Aztecs demonstrated some pleasing-for-the-eye football and smashed France (4-1), South Africa (0-3) and South Korea (3-6). The team was beaten only by Japan (2-1) and now it is time for revenge maybe.
And What about Japan?
The games for the 3rd place in all international tournaments are deprived of unnecessary tension and expectations. In most cases, those games are full of goals and spectacular moments. We have reasons on the ground to believe that we will witness such a game. The hosts of the tournament should also feel sorry that they did not manage to reach the final. The Samurais have not actually lost a single game in the regular time yet. Japan recorded 3 straight wins during the group stage. In the quarter-finals, they beat New Zealand by penalties.
victory in the 1st leg. Molde has been in better condition and form and the team is expected to score either.
