Paraguay’s opponent in the round of 16 will be Argentina. Meanwhile, the loss to Paraguay coincidentally caused Japan to face a very strong opponent, Brazil, in the knockout round.
To meet Brazil in the 1/8 round is nothing short of a real tragedy for Japan.

From the perspective of the music world, it is inconceivable that Japan will surpass Brazil.
