Football news - Japan danger Kamada struggles to find form

Kamada is expected to be a star player at the World Cup in Japan, but the striker has been underwhelming so far and faces a big test against Spain today.

Kamata has played a huge role since joining the Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt, winning the Europa League last season and scoring 12 goals in all competitions so far this season.

The 26 -year-old found success in his first World Cup not easy, despite Japan's stunning 2-1 start to victory over Germany.

Kamada said he played " terribly " in the first half of that match and would " regret it for the rest of his life " if Japan hadn't come back to win the title .

He was even more obscure in his side's next game, a 1-0 defeat to Costa Rica that put the Blue Warriors' chances of reaching the last 16 in jeopardy.

A win over Spain in the final game of Group E will secure their place and Kamada is determined to get back to form in time.

Kamada said he had racked his brains to figure out what was causing his depression, but he hadn't found an answer yet.

Kamata has been stellar for Frankfurt this season after returning from attack to midfield to accommodate striker Mario Gotze , who won the 2014 World Cup for Germany.

He has been a striker for Japan at the World Cup so far, but an injury to midfielder Wataru Endo means he could be an option against Spain.

Kamada said he was not struggling with confidence and backed himself up for a good result against Spain.
