Football: Japan play South Africa

Japan and South Africa will play each other in the first round of the Olympics tournament. The game is taking place on July 22 in Teofu, Japan.


The Japanese team qualified to the final segment of the tournament by virtue of their hosting duties at the Olympics.

The Japanese national football team has been doing well in the field for some time now. Takefusa Kubo is one of its star players, who belongs to Real Madrid and is experienced on the world stage. Hiroki Sakai, a defender with great experience in defense, rounds up a solid squad of talented players for Japan. Perhaps their most promising player is Ritsu Doan from Arminia’s Bundesliga side last year—a striker with an amazing eye for goal.

The Japanese Olympic soccer team has been in four friendly matches this year and they have lost every one.

After performing well in June, Japanese were able to crush the Jamaican 4-0. They also defeated the Honduran youth team 3-1 with only 30 minutes left in the game. The most important result is recent 1-1 tie against Spain, which pulled ahead after 70 minutes.

South Africa qualified for the 2020 Olympics following the 2019 African Youth World Cup of Nations. The South Africans were victorious in the penalty shootouts against Ghana, finishing third.

Forecast and betting

If the Japan team wins, 1.25 bet will be cast for them. A draw can be made for 6.35 and a South Africa win at a price of 14.75 is offered up to bettors in this match-up.

The Japanese team is really good for some strange reason. This might be a real threat that competes even with the medalists from Olympic, as we can see by an encounter with Spain.

Match results

In the first game, as hosts of the tournament, Japan secured a close victory over South Africa after Real Madrid midfielder Takefusa Kubo scored in the second half.
