Japan and China will resume their World Cup 2022 qualifying campaigns on Thursday, as they do battle in Saitama. After six games of the third round of qualifying, Japan sit in the automatic qualification spots, albeit with just a one-point lead over Australia, while their visitors have far more work to do if they are to stand a chance of advancing. After cruising through round two with an almost perfect record, Japan have again looked strong in the third round of Asian World Cup Qualifying, winning four of their six games so far in the campaign, despite suffering an opening 1-0 loss to Oman.

One of the players to take into account in China is Wu Lei, the 30-year-old center forward is currently playing for Espanyol of Spain and has played 14 games so far in the Asian Qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, including the three rounds that have been played, in the total number of matches, he has scored 12 goals.

The Blue Samurai started their third round campaign with a shock defeat to Oman. Since then, though, Japan have climbed into the top two and the automatic promotion spots. Avoiding going into the playoffs is crucial as the eventual winner of the AFC playoff will play fifth place from CONMEBOL qualification – which should prove to be very difficult. They now come up against a Chinese side that have won one, drawn two and lost three matches so far in this group stage. Li Xiaopeng’s side have improved but remain very unlikely to challenge for the top three and Japan, especially with home advantage, will expect to win this one.

The 2022 AFC Asian Women’s Cup officially kicked off this month as 12 countries compete to lift the continental Cup. Japan are the 2018 reigning champions, and several teams will compete for the title and five qualifying spots in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The tournament is hosted in India with matches played in three stadiums across the country. Fans can watch the entire 2022 AFC Women’s Cup on Paramount+. Tournament hosts India have withdrawn from the competition due to a string of positive cases of COVID-19. With a recent outbreak combined with some injuries to players, the team was unable to field the minimum of 13 players for matchday competition. The AFC now consider India withdrawn from the competition in accordance with tournament rules, and all matches of India are now cancelled and considered null and void.

The withdrawal of India now means Group A will go on with group play with three teams, and the historical point achieved in Iranian women’s football history during their first AFC Asian Cup competition is now technically null and void. Matchday 2 confirmed some quarterfinalists with China defeating Iran 7-0 on Monday as forwards Wang Shuang and Wang Shanshan contributed to the scoreline for the Steel Roses, who earned a place in the quarterfinals.

Hajime Moriyasu’s team bounced back instantly when they took on China in the first group meeting between these two sides, as Yuya Osako netted the only goal of the game in Qatar, before they were again harmed by a 1-0 defeat, this time to Saudi Arabia. The Samurai Blue then met heavily-fancied Australia in a crucial clash, and they came out on the right end of a 2-1 victory thanks to Ao Tanaka’s early goal and a late own goal from Aziz Behich.

The Asian section of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers resumes this week and one of the fixtures will see Japan host China PR at the Saitama Stadium on Thursday. The home side have recovered from a poor start to currently occupy second spot in Group B. They have garnered 12 points from six matches and are four points behind table-toppers Saudi Arabia.

Moriyasu’s men have since built on that with back-to-back 1-0 wins over Vietnam and Oman, with Junya Ito netting the decisive goals in each of those. As a result of their strong rebound, Japan sit a point ahead of Australia in third place, and, with two teams earning guaranteed qualification to the tournament later this year, they will be keen to add a fourth straight victory to strengthen their bid for a seventh consecutive World Cup appearance. They take on a China side with a much slimmer chance of progressing after a tough start to the third round, with the visitors beginning by losing to Australia and Thursday’s opponents.

While they bounced back with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Vietnam thanks to a Zhang Yuning goal and a Wu Lei brace, including a 95th-minute winner, the Dragon’s Team have been unable to add another win, falling to a defeat to Saudi Arabia by the same scoreline in the aftermath.

After commendable 1-1 draws against Oman and Australia, with Wu Lei scoring in each, they have kept their hopes alive, but with Australia sitting six points ahead in the playoff place and Japan leading them by seven points, Li Xiaopeng’s men will know they need to post a run of victories to still stand a chance. With just four games left to play, Thursday must act as a turning point for the Dragon’s Team under the new management of Li Xiaopeng as they look to reach a World Cup for the first time since 2002.
