JAPAN VS. NETHERLANDS
Where: Vancouver, Canada. Time: 7. TV: FS1, NBC Universo, NBC Deportes. The buzz: Japan is the tournament’s only remaining unbeaten, untied team, but it is certainly aware what happened to the other team that emerged from group play perfect: Brazil was eliminated by Australia, 1- 0. And Japan, the defending World Cup champion, looks ripe for an upset as well, having won all three of its group games by just a goal — the last a 1- 0 win over Ecuador, a team that allowed 16 goals in its first two games. The Netherlands, making its World Cup debut, also played three tight group- play matches, tying Canada in its last outing.
