Japans victory over Argentina of the same age is astonishing. Argentina U17 is the champion of this age group in South America, although the main purpose of Argentinas competition is to train new players, and a large number of substitutes in the second half. But as a South American power, Argentinas 0-9 defeat of Japan is still incredible.
Japanese football has made great progress after its professionalization in 1993. Especially in recent years, it has made great progress in teenagers and womens football. Womens football is even the world champion. In the Toulon Cup currently being held in France, Japan U22 reached the final historically.
It is worth mentioning that before Japan and Afghanistan warm-up, Japan U17 and Boca Youth U17 had a warm-up match. Although they were 0-2 behind in the first half, they scored three goals in the second half to achieve a big reversal. According to the plan, Japan U17 and Argentina U17 will warm up for the second round today local time.
