Even with the second squad (No European based players), I think Japan have the ability to win the match against North Korea.
Not great times for North Korea senior team. Ok, was that 4-2 at home against Uzbekistan in the qualifers, but they are pretty strong in front of their fans. No home advantage for them here as this tournament is hosted by China. In the winter at Asian Cup in Australia, North Korea was pretty disappointing. The squad it's pretty much the same with some changes. Anyway, Ryang Yong-Gi from Vegalta Sendai and Chong Tae-Se from Shimizu S-Pulse are not in the squad. Seems Chong will never play for North Korea after he said he is a South Korean or something like that, don't know very well what happened, but the North Korean leaders were very upset and he will not be called.
Japan with only players from J-League, but in my opinion these players have a lot of quality even the first choice keeper Shūichi Gonda and midfielder Kashiwagi were replaced due to injuries. Anyway, in this Japan are players with potential to play in Europe like Kōsuke Ōta, Makino (who played for Koln), Gaku Shibasaki, Yuki Muto, Kensuke Nagai and especially former Bayern player, Takashi Usami. These players have a lot of quality to make the difference for Japan today.
