The two teams atop Group E kickoff Saturday's festivities at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, and the winner between the Netherlands and Japan (7:30am, ESPN) will be all but assured advancement into the knockout stages.

The Netherlands head into the match as the heavy favorites, but Japan showed in its first match that it is capable of upsetting teams. Keisuke Honda enjoyed a solid World Cup debut, and his play will be key if Japan wants to have a shot at stunning Wesley Sneijder and the Dutch.
