One of the most interesting meetings of the last sixteen this one, as neither team is a big favourite and, regardless of the result today, the winner will be expected to lose to Spain or Portugal in the quarter final.
I’ve been impressed with both of the teams and I really, really do love watching Honda, and think he might be my favourite player of the whole tournament. I would love to see Japan win, purely for him but I think Paraguay are going to edge it, maybe in extra-time but I’m going for normal time for this one.
