These teams drew 0-0 in the group stage of the last World Cup, and Mexico qualified for the last 16 here at the expense of Germany, beating the holders 1-0 in Moscow in their opening game.

The 32-year-old attacking midfielder, who did not start a game in Russian Federation, came on as a second half substitute in Rostov as Japan let a 2-0 lead slip and conceded a third in the final seconds of stoppage time.

'They have many qualities, ' he said. "I think the group is more important than individuals". Knockout matches have a lot to do with experience, even when you have good talents.

"This is a group of players who know what they are doing on the pitch, so I expect a very, very hard game, one where we will have to concentrate at all times because they are capable of creating problems due to that dynamic approach they have".
