USA vs JPN Dream11 Prediction : The triple header day from the land of the FIH Series Final returns with an early morning encounter on Monday
Two teams who’ve scored 16 goals between them and let in just the one. Pool B has been lit alight by USA and Japan with the two sides making the most of their well rounded outfits to pummel South Africa and Russia and sit on top of the group.
For USA, their 9-0 win against Russia in their previous encounter helped reaffirm their status as real challengers for the title. It was a joyous attacking display, one which burnt through Russia who were left picking up the pieces throughout the match.
Elsewhere Japan are heading into this clash with a 2-0 win against South Africa. The Asian side have been a spectacle to behold, incorporating a strong attacking unit with a rigid defence, not giving the opposition any breathing space.
Come early morning and both the effervescent sides are squaring off against each other for one last time in Pool B. And it’s by no means an inconsequential match with the winner on Monday advancing to the semi-finals without any hurdle in between where as the second placed side will be left playing a qualifier.
Given how strong USA have emerged across their two matches, we have to give them the upper hand for this match. The country have been a real surprise to us with them stepping up their game massively as they look to make it through to the Japan Olympics. Japan won’t be as easy as their previous two opponents but we see USA outscoring them in the match and heading ahead by a small margin.
Goal-Keeper for USA vs JPN Dream11
USA’s Jonathan Klages comes in for us. With a massive 66 points against south Africa, he showed how much of an advert he has for keeping the shots out of his goal. Japan will be relentless in attack and Klages should amass a good amount of points here.
Defenders for USA vs JPN Dream11
Despite us being guaranteed goals, the nature of these two sides defence means we are bound to indulge ourselves in a plethora of defenders. It’ll be the two each from either side and we’ll begin with our selections from USA. Kaeppeler and Gandhi are they only two options in Dream 11 from the side and we are going to include both of these well versed players.
Japan gives us a plethora of options but the two undeniable picks have to be Zendana and Yamda. The two have a penchant for putting in rousing displays at the front as well, a pivotal part of their side’s penalty corners. Japan rely massively on these two to execute their well drilled in moves and we expect these two to be putting on yet another befitting display.
Midfielders for USA vs JPN Dream11
We are going to pick just the sole player from USA with Paul Singh being our pick on the day. He was a real brick against South Africa, screening the backline perfectly amongst SA’s carnage and he will be up for the real fight which Japan show today.
The Japanese are going to make a partnership here in this facet in the wake of their consummate success in the previous two matches. Suguru Hoshi and Kitazato are the two picks we’ve nailed on to deliver a defiant and resilient performance to hammer down the framework of a win for Japan.
Forwards for USA vs JPN Dream11
With 9 goals against Russia, we have to incur ourselves in two strikers from USA. Japan have conceded the one goal as well in their current outing in the league, showing that they are culpable to faltering under pressure. Angelis and Kaeppler are going to be the duo we have decided to partake in with for their match against Japan.
From the Asian side we have decided to pick up Kenta Tanaka to lead our line.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Both the striker are going to captain and vice-captain our side on the day. USA’s Angelis is our captain while Japan’s Tanaka is going to be our vice-captain.
