Southampton defender Maya Yoshida is set for a crucial World Cup last-16 meeting tonight, as Japan take on Belgium.

Yoshida played every minute of Group H action, as the Blue Samurai finished one four points and became the first team in World Cup history to go through due to fair play.

That set up for the tie with a Belgium side that scored the most goals at the group stage at the Rostov Arena, with kick-off at 7pm BST.

This is the third time Japan have reached the knockout stages of the competition, having previously done so in 2002 and 2010.

The two sides last met in November 2017 when Romelu Lukaku’s solitary strike earned victory.
