Japan World Cup Betting

Japan were the first team to qualify for the 2014 World Cup after drawing 1-1 with Australia to ensure qualification for their fifth World Cup. The Japanese won Group B of Asian qualifying by four points from Australia. This is Japan's fifth visit to a World Cup, reaching the last sixteen twice in their history including last time in South Africa 2010 where they lost on penalties to Paraguay. Japan have been handed a draw in Group C alongside Colombia, Greece and the Ivory Coast.

Japan have it all to do after losing their opening match of the World Cup 2-1 to the Ivory Coast and they could only draw 0-0 in a dour second match in Group C. A defeat to Colombia in their final match left them bottom of Group C without a win.
