Spain will go out to beat Japan. And Luis Enrique will make adjustments to present the most suitable team to do it. That is why changes are expected, although he hinted that the threat of sanction that he plans for captain Sergio Busquets, if he receives a second yellow card, will not modify his plan.

What time is Japan vs. Spain?

  • Peru, Colombia and Ecuador: 1:00 p.m.
  • Bolivia and Venezuela: 2:00 p.m.
  • Argentina, Paraguay, Chile, Uruguay and Brazil: 3:00 p.m.
  • Spain: 7:00 p.m.

In this way, the return of César Azpilicueta is expected in the rotation on the right side with Dani Carvajal, and he could have options to debut as a starter Alejandro Balde if there is a breather for Jordi Alba, one of the sides with the greatest incidence in the World Cup along with to the French Theo Hernández.

The number of changes for the Spanish coach will depend on the state of Rodri and Gavi. Ready to enter Eric García and Pau Torres in the center of the rear, like Koke in the midfield. More rest options for Gavi because the blow suffered against Germany is on a knee and it makes little sense to take any risk with a player who has become one of the great sensations.

Meanwhile, in attack a name appears asking for a goal-based move, Álvaro Morata. Unexpected substitute in the first two chapters of Qatar 2022, scoring in both, close to equaling Zarra’s record for goals in his first three World Cup games. The option to play with a pure 9 against an opponent who, from the start, will repeat his plan shown against Germany. Lock himself in his territory, deliver the ball and take advantage of his deadly speed on the counterattack.

Assuming more responsibility from possession went wrong against Costa Rica. Defeated in the only shot on goal they received to risk everything in their duel against Spain. Second classified in a group in which the four teams have options. Tied at three points all behind Spain. The Japanese need will depend on the result of the other match.

The changes introduced from the first game to the second did not give good results to the Japanese coach, Hajime Moriyasu. Yamane’s entry in defense, Morita in midfield along with Soma and Ueda up front. He will go back to his initial plan. The one that surprised Germany and knocked down the four-time world champion.

Pending the evolution of one of his stars, Takefusa Kubo, absent against Costa Rica due to discomfort, but recovering Takehiro Tomiyasu, the Japanese coach has a difficult time counting on his starting right-back, Hiroki Sakai, and with midfielder Wataru Endo with a problem with knee. If they don’t make it on time, Miki Yamame and Takumi Minamino would be the top candidates.

Probable lineups: Japan vs. Spain

  • Spain: Unai Simón; Azpilicueta, Rodri or Eric García, Laporte, Balde; Busquets, Koke, Pedri; Marco Asensio, Dani Olmo and Morata.
  • Japan: Gonda; Yamane, Yoshida, Kou Itakura, Nagatomo; Tanaka, Junya Ito, Kamada, Minamino; Kubo or Tomiyasu and Maeda.
