In a group with Colombia, Senegal and Poland, representatives of the Country of the rising sun are considered by many bookmakers the underdog. To do this, just look at the FIFA rankings. It Colombians occupy the thirteenth place, the Senegalese have settled on twenty seventh place, and the poles altogether by mid-March, surpassed the Spaniards and rose to the sixth position. It is noteworthy that Robert Lewandowski and company will have to confront the national team of Japan in the final match of the group stage.
In March, the Japanese have played two friendly matches against footballers of Mali (1:1) and Ukraine (1:2).

So in the camp of the poles of the full order and high spirits. One can only hope that the world Cup their principal contractors will be ready to go on the field of Russian arenas. And show the fans our best.
