The Japan national soccer team has decided to play against Colombia in a warm-up match scheduled in Osaka in March this year as a warm-up match after the World Cup Qatar tournament.
The Japan national football team will play their first warm-up match after the Qatar Games on March 23 at the National Stadium in Tokyo and on March 28 at Yodokou Sakura Stadium in Osaka.
As a result of adjustments made by the Japan Football Association regarding the opponents for these two matches, it has been decided that the match will be played against Colombia on March 28 in Osaka.
Colombia did not participate in last year's Qatar tournament as they were eliminated in the South American qualifiers, but they are a higher opponent than Japan, who are ranked 17th and 20th in the world rankings.
Japan has faced Colombia twice in the last World Cup, losing in Brazil in 2014 but winning in Russia in 2018.
The overall record is 1 win, 3 losses and 1 draw.
On the other hand, the Japan Football Association continues to make adjustments regarding the opponents for the match to be held at the National Stadium on March 23.
