About the Stadium:
Tokyo Olympic Stadium is an iconic sports venue located in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan. It is known for being the main venue of the 1964 Tokyo Olympics and has returned to be the epicenter of the Olympic Games in 2020, which was held in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This stadium is a key piece of Olympic history, having hosted significant events in two editions of the Olympic Games.
The current design of the Tokyo Olympic Stadium was conceived by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. It was inaugurated in 2019 and has a capacity to hold approximately 68,000 spectators. The stadium's design is distinctive, highlighted by its wooden roof and oval shape that blends harmoniously with the surrounding natural environment.
The favorites to win
On the other hand, Japan also arrives at the Asian Cup of Nations with the illusion of making a great performance and looking to fight to reach the knockout stages where they will be able to fight for the Cup. Unlike their similar, Japan will have a much more accessible group where they are the favorites to qualify as top of the group to think about knockout stages as they will debut against Vietnam, a team that generally has not had good performances in this tournament, on date 2 they will face Iraq, a team that could complicate things for them but does not represent a latent threat and they will close against Indonesia, a team that is another favorite to be eliminated in the group stage.
Need to surprise
The Jordanian national team should take advantage of this match against the national team of Japan to have a breakthrough and raise their collective soccer towards their debut in the AFC Asian Cup of Nations 2024, in addition, Jordan will face an extremely strict group, but with a real and high possibility of qualifying to the next stage of this tournament. To begin with, they will debut against the national team of Malaysia in a match where Jordan could take advantage of the three points, then, they will have to face one of the favorite teams to win the glory, South Korea, the South Koreans will surely make it difficult for Jordan and will not let the three points escape easily and will close against Bahrain, a team that little by little has raised its level.
Preparing for the Asian Cup of Nations
The new edition of the Asian Cup of Nations is just around the corner and little by little the nations of the continent that has begun to export several players to the top leagues of the world are beginning to gather their best players to represent the colors of their flag in the quest for the eternal glory of Asia. In this friendly match between Japan and Jordan, both teams will be able to test the level they will face and the level they will have to be at in order to face a great challenge such as this tournament.
