Kakitani is not the 2013 Esat Asia Cup MVP.

lol Japan think they have a chance in the world cup. They have Colombia, Ivory Coast and Greece, instant knockout. They have a decent squad, but Colombia and Ivory Coast have much better squads, they can only beat Greece. The only time Japan win is in anime. I love Japan, but they have no chance. Old man Drogba is gonna run right through their defense, their only world class defender is Uchida. Hopefully, the forwards make up for it, they are deadly.

No Shunsuke Nakamura, but still sympatic team. Good Luck

Not a though group! Don't be silly Colombia has better players physically and flair. Ramos will be joining Borussia Dortmund soon. Ivory Coast Toure brothers and pace! While Greece have a solid defense Sokratis! Don't get me wrong I wish Japan the best!
Benjamin Tang
Where is Ryo Miyachi? He should also be a breakout star too.
Bruce Lee

Nippon nippon nippon nippon! Ganbatte! \n\nJapan the monster from East Asia! \n\nBut the GK is terrible :(

1st Colombia (even without falcao they are complete beast and i believe they can qualify even to the final if they are fit enough)\n2nd Greece (absolutely solid team with propably one of the best defence out there,although if mitrogloy is not fit i think they can finish even at 4th place)\n3rd Japan (one word TEAM ,really fast but many of the players play in Japan witch is quite a mediocre league,short team so Greece,Colombia and Ivory Coast have a big lead on corners fouls and stuff)\n4th Ivory Coast (the reason why i believe they will finish last is because they are not united,the team is said to be troubled with the picks of the coach, also may be fast and got great players but they are pretty old and have many games during the season,last but not least they dont have a solid defence making them my 4th choise to qualify from this group.\nThis is my choise i have bet on that 120 euro :P

KickTV has completely forgotten to introduce Yuto Nagatomo from Inter Milan.
MrNothingButAir
i'm not japanese but as an Asian American i'll def root for japan and korea as my 2nd team.
NJ moyashi
The truth is the most dangerous inter Nagatomo\nHe is the most experienced
Navi Tbou
Beautiful video! Very nice!! but......Where is yuto nagatomooooo??!!
Nihilus
Started watching soccer in 2010 during the World Cup and Japan quickly became my favorite after seeing Endo and Honda both score free kicks against Denmark, since then I have followed Japan. Yes Kakitani is a break out star, but don't forget Yuya Osako! Really excited to see what happens on the biggest stage.
Omer Simantov
Yuto Nagatomo is not a main player ???

Sky kanagawa
Japan Beat Ghana 3-1, Belgium 3-2 and Tied with Netherland 2-2 :) in recent 2 years :) がんばれ日本
Snowmangaming92
Shinji Okazaki have been phenomonal in the Bundesliga, makes astute plays and have a deadly shot on him. He did all the dirty work himself in stuttgart, but with players like Keisuke Honda, Shinji Kagawa, Kasabe and Uchida with him, he cane become a national star. I'm not going to be surprised if Japan goes through the group stages.
Stanzay0
Hey Jimmy, I never received a message about me winning the Bayern Munich shirt a couple of days ago
Supa Kron
They also love making weird commercials :D
Taiko Cat
Their defense will be the weak spot this year. They have to capitalize on the counter attacks. Can't wait to see how we do!
TheShnav
In the group that Japans in any one of the teams has a good chance of making it out
TheWhatthefreakish
If North Korea made the World Cup, their World Cup video would be so awkward

Japan has a really strong team the only problem is that all the awesome players like Okazaki, Honda, Kagawa and Kiyotake are CAM's it will be hard to the manager...
ozner25
