Asian powerhouse Japan will travel to France to take on 5-time World Champions Brazil in an International Friendly match in Lille today. With both teams having already qualified for the FIFA World Cup in Russia next year, this friendly gives their managers optimum room to try out different players, strategies and combinations.
Anyhow, let us get straight into the team news.
