Senior National Team History[edit]

Nippon's National Team has qualified for the World Cup main phase 5 times so far.

  1. The first time was back during World Cup V. Nippon outsmarted France, Indonesia and Uruguay in the qualification group games and made it to the last 32. Here Nippon finished third in front of Austria, but behind Indonesia and Italy which qualified for round III.
  2. The success was repeated 10 seasons later during World Cup X when Nippon managed to beat Portugal and Suomi amongst few others in the qualification group. In round II the team once again finished third behind Portugal and Colombia, but ahead of Venezuela.
  3. For the World Cup XI Nippon finished second in the qualification behind Spain and thus made it to the World Cup main phase for the 3rd time. Here they beat Russia with an amazing 6-2 in their first game.
  4. In World Cup XII Nippon qualifies to second round where the team places 3rd before Denmark.
  5. During World Cup XV Nippon places third in Round II after winning 6-2 the match against Canada.
