The Qasioun Eagles will be looking to overcome Japan tomorrow in the second round of the second round of the double qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup and the 2027 Asian Cup, in the match to be held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
It seems that our team is determined to continue its successful start in the qualifiers after overcoming the DPRK in the first round with an unanswered goal that came through Omar Al-Somah in the 38th minute from the penalty spot.
In today's press conference for tomorrow's match, manager Hector Cuper said that winning the first game of the qualifiers always gives you confidence and is a strong motivation to continue building well.
Cooper stressed the difficulty of the match against Japan, adding: "We know exactly how difficult the Japan match is, but we will look for a way and a tactic that enables us to reduce the differences between us, and look for a positive result.
"Japan have a large number of good professional players at the best European clubs, so trying to reduce the danger of them all is only through collective work and tactics and not by focusing on a player himself.
Our national team player Mohamed Osman confirmed his readiness with his teammates for tomorrow's match and the great determination to perform well and achieve a positive result despite the difficulty of the match.
Our team plays in the qualifiers in Group B alongside Japan, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and Myanmar, and the second round matches "group stage" are held in a two-stage league manner, and the first two teams from each group qualify for the third round of the World Cup qualifiers that will be held in Canada, Mexico and the United States, and at the same time these teams reserve their seats in the 2027 AFC Asian Cup finals in Saudi Arabia.
