Japan and Spain meet in their final group match of the 2022 World Cup to decide who goes through in Group E at Khalifa International Stadium on Thursday.

The Samurai Blues started their campaign with a 2-1 win over four-time champions Germany but then lost to Costa Rica in their second match. They need a victory in their final group to be assured a spot in the last 16.

Spain have had mixed fortunes at the 2022 World Cup. They began the tournament with a massive 7-0 win over Costa Rica before being held by Germany. But all they need to do is avoid defeat to Japan in order to book their place in the next round.
