Ranking all 32 2018 World Cup squads

[post_page_title]Japan – World ranking, 60th[/post_page_title]
Japan had little trouble qualifying for the tournament but will probably struggle when they get to Russia. They will have to compete against strong teams in Colombia, Senegal, and Poland. Japan are lacking a star player but can rely on solid pros to make sure they are as competitive as possible. Shinji Kagawa and Shinji Okazaki will look to lead by example by bringing good club form to their national team. Their previous best place was the Round of 16, which would be impressive if they manage that again this year.
