Tigres UANL striker Andre-Pierre Gignac will continue to lead the line for France. Lucas Tousart is likely to start as well.

Yuta Nakayama, Ko Itakura, Maya Yoshida and Hiroki Sakai will start at the back for Japan.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Japan have scored three goals and conceded one goal at the Olympics.
