Line-ups

Japan: Kawashima, G Sakai, H Sakai, Yoshida, Makino, Nagatomo, Muto, Yamaguchi, Shibasaki, Usami, kazaki

Poland: Fabianski, Bereszynski, Glik, Bednarek, Jedrzejczyk, Krychowiak, Goralski, Grosicki, Zielinski, Kurzawa, Lewandowski

Japan captain Makoto Hasebe has urged his side to go for the win against Poland and move into the last 16 of the World Cup in style.

The Samurai Blue are somewhat surprise leaders of a balanced Group H after two matches, having followed up a 2-1 win over Colombia with a 2-2 draw against Senegal.

A point against Poland, who will be heading home after the group phase, will guarantee Japan's spot in the next round, where they will face either Belgium or England.
