The Reggae Boyz, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Saudi Arabia, but they will have a mountain to climb in Thursday’s clash against the high-flying Yanks. Even though Juventus rising star Weston McKennie is out of contention, we are tempted to put our money on USA, who scored 19 goals in total in the previous three friendly games. When the two national teams met at the 2019 Gold Cup USA recorded a 3-1 win over Jamaica.
The Samurai Blue, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Mexico, and they should take advantage of Son’s absence. A man to keep an eye on in the Japanese national team will be Liverpool attacker Minamino, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Partizan attacker Takuma Asano returns to the squad, with Maya Yoshida, and Wataru Endo receiving a call-up as well.
Predictions Japan win 2-1
