Japan will play against Ireland in the Rugby World Cup on September 28th. This is going to be a fantastic match in which the Irish players will have to get a grip on themselves to beat Japan, the hosting nation of the entire tournament.
A picture from the Rugby World Cup opening ceremony on September 20th.
There is a clear advantage in hosting a tournament, and we have seen how France has used it to their advantage when they have hosted football tournaments. Unfortunately, the French ladies didn't manage to get to the final of this years FIFA World Cup as they lost to the USA in the quarter-finals, but many considered that to be the actual final of the FIFA World Cup. We can also remember how the French men managed to get to the final of the European Championship arranged in France back in 2016. But, France is one of the best teams in the world in football, and it might be that Japan doesn't have the same skills and qualities in rugby as France have in football. But, it would be great if Japan as the hosting nation would manage to surprise and outperform themselves in the Rugby World Cup 2019.

Players to watch in on the Irish and the Japanese team
There is no doubt about the fact that Ireland has a team packed with stars and amazing rugby players. But, they do have some people capable of giving the team the little extra that is needed sorely on days when the matches are close and the battles are tough. Some of the biggest profiles on the Irish team are Jacob Stockdale from Ulster, and then we have the two Leinster players Johnny Sexton and Tadhg Furlong. These all have experience and might be the ones that will give Ireland the advantage they need against a Japanese team coming packed with fighting spirit.
Japan doesn't have any super profiles, but as a team, they can beat anyone, just like they won against South-Africa during the group stage ahead of the rugby world cup.
