Tokyo Olympics: Spain ends up goalless draw against Egypt in the Men’s Football mega event

Group C oppositions Spain and Egypt started in the group stage of the Tokyo Men’s Football event with a goalless draw losing their two players to injury.

Spain started their journey with a rough goalless draw at the Tokyo Games against Egypt in the Men’s Football tournament at Sapporo Dome where they also lost their two players to injury on Thursday. Despite dominating the game, Spaniards failed opportunities of grabbing three points.

Spain with a powerful starting XI couldn’t get a path past Egyptians and failed to seize their chances into goals in front of their defence. The last time they claimed gold was in 1992.


Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos knocked the post in the first half but was sent off because of a meeting with an injury just before the first half whistle when Egyptian forward Taher Mohamed tackled him. The player enlisted Barcelona’s full-back Oscar Mingueza who seemingly grabbed a thigh injury. Both were forced off for Spain while the side failed some of their quickness even though they entirely were dominant in the game against the opponents.

The team of the men’s football are usually impeded to under-23 different from women’s competition that includes all the senior players.

Egypt Starting XI: Elshenawy, Eraky, El Wench, Hegazy, Galal, Fotouh, Ashour, Tawfik, Mohamed, Sobhi, Rayan.

Spain Starting XI: Simon, Mingueza, Garcia, Torres, Miranda, Pedri, Merino, Olmo, Ceballos, Asensio, Oyarzabal.
