Japan’s shock exit from the tournament has turned the tables on its own fans.
토토사이트 The Japanese national soccer team has been knocked out of the group stage of the FIFA U-20 World Cup 2023 in Argentina with a record of one win and two losses.
Japan won its first game against Senegal 1-0, but then fell to Colombia (1-2) and Israel (1-2). It was the first time in 22 years that Japan had been eliminated in the group stage since the 2001 tournament. Coincidentally, the hosts were Argentina.
After Japan’s elimination was confirmed, Japanese soccer fans also criticized their country’s up-and-coming players. “The players are laughing even though they lost the game. There is no discipline,” “Laughing during the game is not real,” “Young players are only concerned with their hairstyles,” and “Players are only interested in fashion.”
Some Japanese fans were unhappy that some of their players had changed their hairstyles, such as dyeing their hair or getting reggae haircuts.
Other Japanese fans compared Japan and South Korea after South Korea clinched a spot in the round of 16 with one win and one draw in two games, saying, “South Korea even made it to the round of 16 with one game to go,” and “What happened to Japan’s samurai spirit?”
