Vahid HALILHODZIC, Coach of SAMURAI BLUE (Japan National Team) Comment

They will be matchups against two of the best teams in the world. Brazil are so inspirational for all the players in the world. They are arguably the best team in the world. It’s a great experience for us to improve ourselves and it will tell us where we stand just ahead of the World Cup. I am happy that it is held in Lille, because the city has the club that I used to coach and I still have many friends there. Also, Belgium have been in the group of the world elites in recent years. Their players are individually talented and they can play against any team in the world. We need to take advantage of that match as well. It may be expected that both opponents will come out as winners against us, but we will challenge them aggressively. We respect them, while we respect ourselves. We try to improve ourselves as we look to win against them.
