If you are a veteran football fan who has been paying attention to football all over the world, then you may find that on this international match day, it seems that only one country's top league is going on as usual.
Japan’s J-League completed another round of matches today. Interestingly, their national team just completed an international A-level warm-up match yesterday. The reason is also very simple, and this reason makes many Chinese fans feel a little jealous: this time the Japanese national team is all composed of players who play in Europe.
Yes, knowing such news will definitely make Chinese fans a little uncomfortable. While we were still looking forward to who could become the "second man" in the mainstream European arena, Japan easily assembled a complete national team. Even if we look at this matter with a peaceful mindset, there is no way to conceal the gap in the comprehensive development level of football between the two countries.
As I just said, the Japanese team completed a friendly match with Cameroon in the Netherlands. In the first appearance in 2020, they did not show a performance that matched their name-although all players played in Europe. , But because of the unfamiliar cooperation, they did not show a particularly good offensive level, and in the end they only gained a flat.
Although the Japanese men's football team did form the national team roster through European players, this is not their strongest level. Because of the anti-epidemic policy, if Japanese J-League players come back after going abroad to compete, it is likely to affect the domestic league, so this time they have to use this method to form their own national team.
Of course, the purpose of writing these words is not to fool everyone with arrogance: "Japan's all-European national team is bluffing!" They can use European players to form a complete national team lineup. Of course, we cannot catch up with China. Super hard power, but from the perspective of football itself, the strength of the Japanese team has not developed in a positive direction.
Although the Japanese men's football team has enough players in Europe, the number of leaders who can really tell has declined compared with a few years ago. Minano Takumi, Osaki Yuya and others are considered to have gained a firm foothold in the five major leagues, but compared to the tactical status of the predecessors such as Kagawa Shinji and Honda Keisuke a few years ago, there is still a certain distance. From the perspective of the Japanese team alone, compared with the infinite scenery of the World Cup war in Belgium two years ago, the Japanese team's own personnel reserves are also fluctuating.
尽管日本男子足球队在欧洲有足够的球员，但真正能说出来的领导人人数与几年前相比有所下降。 Minano Takumi，Osaki Yuya等人被认为在五个大联欧宝体育平台盟中都拥有稳固的立足点，但是与几年前香川真司和本田圭佑等前辈的战术地位相比，还有一定距离。仅从日本队的角度来看，与两年前比利时世界杯战争的无限风光相比，日本队本身的人员储备也在波动。
Do you still remember Mount Shibasaki, who was so fascinating in the Club World Cup against Real Madrid a few years ago? His European career has not fulfilled people's expectations from La Liga to La Liga. The bottleneck of physical confrontation that Chinese players will encounter in the European arena has not found a good solution for Japanese players, and it may also be an inevitable barrier for most Asian players.
Of course, the strength of this Japanese team is still strong, and it is still the goal that the Chinese men's football team needs to do their best to catch up. A more rational view of football may be good for Chinese fans.
