Facts :
Japan will be participating in qualifying for a FIFA World Cup™ for the 13th time, having reached the finals just twice. For a long time, Japanese football struggled to break through, despite an Olympic bronze medal.
That was to change in 1998, when the team reached the finals of the FIFA World Cup in France, suffering narrow defeats to Argentina, Croatia and Jamaica. Four years later in their home country, Japan would have their finest hour.
