Poland vs Japan: TV channel, live stream, squad news & preview Akira Nishino’s side will be aiming to secure top spot in Group H and qualification for the last 16 of the World Cup in Russia
Japan go into their final first-round fixture joint top of Group H, level on points with Senegal. Poland, however, are rock bottom of the group after losing both of their games so far and are already out of the World Cup.
Colombia face Senegal in the other Group H game taking place on Thursday, with the result of that one likely deciding who goes through to the knockout stages along with Japan.
Japan need only to draw to secure their place in the last 16, with a win more than likely securing first place in the group, with the top two from Group H facing England or Belgium in the first knockout round.

Undoubtedly their star player heading into the game is the former Man Utd midfielder Shinji Kagawa, but their best performer last time out was his fellow attacking midfielder Takashi Inui who plays for Spanish side Real Betis. Other recognisable names to look out for are Southampton’s Maya Yoshida and Leicester’s Shinji Okazaki.
Potential Japan XI: Kawashima, Sakai, Yoshida, Shoji, Nagatomo, Haraguchi, Hasebe, Kagawa, Shibasaki, Inui, Osako
Poland’s shining light throughout qualifying and for the past couple tournaments has been Robert Lewandowski. But the Bayern Munich striker has been very quiet in the tournament so far and he will be hoping to at least end the World Cup on a positive note with a goal.
Potential Poland XI: Szczesny, Pazdan, Bednarek, Bereszynski, Piszczek, Goralski, Krychowiak, Rybus, Zielinski, Lewandowski, Kownacki
