Japan entered the 2022 World Cup as a potential sleeper, and they lived up to the billing so far. Despite having a perceived talent disadvantage, Japan were able to beat top nations like Germany and Spain in the group stage. This Japanese side clearly aren’t intimidated to play Croatia, a nation that is No. 12 in the FIFA World Rankings. Croatia finished with a pair of 0-0 draws in three group stage matches. This could be another nervy battle that ends in a draw in regular time.
