Japan still targets semi-finals

Japan were drawn against Holland, Cameroon and Denmark.

“I think all the opposition countries are rated above us in a sense, but they are within a range that we can cope with. I think the group is not so bad,” Okada told reporters.

“It will be the fourth World Cup finals for Japan and we are aiming for a top four spot. We don’t intend to change our goal and we continue to aim for a top four spot.”
