Setting the stage

Two more quarterfinal spots are up for grabs Monday, and Japan is aiming to make World Cup history by advancing to the knockout stage for the first time in team history.

However, in order to qualify for its first quarterfinal berth, Japan will have to make it past a tough Croatian team led by world-class midfielder Luka Modrić.

Japan’s Shogo Taniguchi took a shot right out of the gate to set the tone, bit his header missed just to the left.

Then, a few minutes later, Japan keeper Shuichi Gonda denied Ivan Perišić to keep things scoreless.
