Japan vs Chile live stream, date, time, channels
As previous World Cup hosts, Japan reached the quarter-finals of the tournament for the first time in their history four years ago, though Jamie Joseph’s men haven’t really built on that terrific campaign. They lost all three of their warm-up games and have only beaten Tonga this year, though with Group D heavyweights England in meltdown, they still have an excellent chance of reaching the knockouts.
No.8 Kazuki Himeno and former skipper Michael Leitch are their key players, both equally adept at carrying the ball, though even they would have marvelled at Rodrigo Fernandez’s solo wonder-try that helped Chile reach the World Cup at the expense of USA.
The 27-year-old fought off the attentions of seven defenders while staggering through 80 yards of quick-sand in torrential conditions, earning the 2022 Try of the Year award for his troubles. The Condors fly-half is certainly a player to keep an eye on over the next few weeks.
