Denmark 2-0 Senegal ( Christian Poulsen, Thomas Enevoldsen)
“Olsen’s Eleven” as they are known, were very fortuitous to escape with a win against Cameroon. Denmark defended very poorly at the back with their entire back four guilty of horrendous errors. Simon Kjaer is suspended for the game after picking up two yellows. Denmark will have to go in with a very attack minded line-up. Tomasson and Bendtner will be the prime sources of goals. Rommedahl, Jorgenson and Gronkjaer will join in from midfield.
Japan form- last five games- most recent first
Japan 0-1 Netherlands
Japan 1-0 Cameroon ( Keisuke Honda)
Japan 0-2 Ivory Coast
Japan 1-2 England ( Tulio)
Japan 0-2 Korea
Japan’s lack of potency in front of goal is a cause for concern. They will set their stall to defend against the Danes. Eiji Kawashima was guilty of deflecting Wesley Sneijder’s strike into his own net. Takeshi Okada would need his goalkeeper and back four to come good against the pacy Danish attack. Shunsuke Nakamura and Junichi Inamoto – Japan’s stars of previous years have not started a game at this World Cup. It would be interesting to see if they are called back into the starting eleven for this crucial tie.
