On the other hand, the Japanese may be confident as they defeated Paraguay in their last world cup warm up game but they would be really worried as how they have failed against both Switzerland and Ghana. They even lost four of their last six games on their way to Russia and now in their opening match they would be facing off a Colombian side that takes pride in scoring awesome goals. Japan would want to stop James Rodriguez at any cost because of the form he is in at the moment. James scored 6 goals in the qualifiers and also scored against Japan previously so he would also eye to repeat his heroics in this World Cup as well.
