England vs Japan Live in Different TV Channels: Friendly 2010

English and Japanese football fans are now excited to see their World Cup bound teams facing each other in an international friendly on 30 May 2010. The match is due to take place in Graz, Austria.
Japan goes into the match on the back of two back to back defeats at the hands of Serbia and South Korea. So, it seems Japan’s confidence level would not be high against England, but the Japanese side would like to put in an inspirational performance against the Three Lions knowing that it would boost up their World Cup preparation.
Despite a 3-1 win, England was not impressive at all against Mexico. With the players looking to clinch a place in the final squad going to South Africa, England fans would like to see a dominating performance from Capello’s team.
Capello would also like to have a final look at the squad before finalizing his 23-man squad on 1 June. Fans will be aware of Capello’s strategy against Japan. The coach may revert to a more traditional 4-4-2 formation after the 4-2-3-1 formation that he deployed against Mexico failed to deliver anything special.
Japanese fans are disappointed with Japan’s recent form and they are highly doubtful about coach Takeshi Okada’s hopes of reaching the semi final in the World Cup. So, a big margin defeat to England, which now looms pretty much certain, could be another blow for the Japanese side who are already short of confidence.
Expectations around England are very high this year. So, another unimpressive win would only end up mounting pressure on the Three Lions players.
A number of TV Channels would provide live telecast of the match for their viewers. Here are some of those TV channels that will telecast the match for their viewers:
