MILAN – After receiving a visit in Brisbane from 60 young Japanese athletes that live in Australia, the Japan national team (coached by Javier Aguirre) have made their way to Melbourne.On Tuesday at 20.00 (10 am CET), Japan face Jordan. After 5 goals scored, 0 conceded and 6 points from the first 2 group matches, Keisuke Honda and Japan need at least a draw to qualify for the Quarter Finals of the Asian Cup as group winners.Here is the situation in Group D ahead of the match: Japan 6 points; Iraq and Jordan 3; Palestine 0. Should Japan go through as group winners, they will meet the second ranked nation from Group C: the Arab Emirates or Iran.Keisuke Honda said this ahead of the match: "We know that Palestine could lose by a big margin against Iraq and for this reason we have to take to the pitch very focused against Jordan. By continuing with our work, the quality of our game will improve. It doesn’t matter if it came from the penalty spot, what counts for me is to have scored the decisive goal in the win against Iraq. It’s always important to score in a big match and I am always very attentive to these aspects."
