Japan take on Brazil in a friendly in Poland with Shinji Kagawa, fresh from scoring the winner in France, keen to see his nation have a crack at upsetting the South Americans for the first time in their history. "When you play against the best teams you need to take more risks," said Kagawa. "We still don't take enough risks. We've got to rise to the challenge of the top teams."
Robin van Persie is poised for a recall to the Netherlands side for the clash in Romania after being rested for the win against Andorra while Joshua King is pushing for a start for Norway in Cyprus after coming off the bench against Switzerland.
Javier Hernandez has been backed to rediscover his best form after missing a penalty and receiving some criticism despite Mexico's 5-0 win against Guyana in Houston. Chicharito did score in the match and has the support of coach Jose Manuel de la Torre, who revealed he has had a chat with the striker. "What matters is his personality and the effort," said de la Torre.
