World Cup: Maeda hoping to lead the line for Japan against Germany. SNS Group

On Wednesday four of the big European sides enter the action as 2018 finalists Croatia, with Old Firm full backs Borna Barisic and Josip Juranovic, open the proceedings against Morocco at 10am before 2014 winners Germany take on Japan at 1pm and 2010 winners Spain play Costa Rica at 4pm.

Belgium, who are the top ranked European side, are still on the hunt for their first international trophy as the country’s ‘golden generation’ look to finally realise their potential and they play Canada at 7pm.

Our one to watch is Germany vs Japan and a potential World Cup debut for Celtic star Daizen Maeda who was selected in the Samurai Blue squad ahead of teammate Kyogo Furuhashi.

In a tough group with Spain and Germany the Asian side will be looking to get off to a good start later on Wednesday.

Celtic right back Juranovic starts for Croatia in the early kick-off with Barisic named among the substitutes.

Social media reactions:

Hearts fans not happy with BBC presenter after Stoke name checked but not the Jambos despite two of the back four playing for the Tynecastle club.

Hearts right-back Nathanial Atkinson admitted playing against Kyllian Mbappe was like “trying to bottle lightning” as champions teach Socceroos a 4-1 lesson despite going a goal down.

And Saudi Arabia supporters celebrated their famous win over Argentina.
