Japan National Football Team Copa America 2019: The team Japan is set to make their second appearance at the Copa America, having become the first team ever from outside the Americas to play the competition in 1999.
They were also slated to participate in the 2011, but were forced to withdraw following that year’s devastating earthquake and tsunami.
A flawless campaign so far in the Asian Cup shows that South America’s top sides should be wary of Japan, with strike duo Yuya Osako and Yoshinori Muto and veteran defensive rock Yuto Nagatomo among their top stars.
They will have to work hard to make the quarter finals, however, after being drawn against Uruguay and Chile, winners of the last three editions between them.
