Egypt vs Spain live streaming: Preview
Will pre-tournament favourites Spain kick off this Olympics campaign with a victory?
La Rojita have won just three Olympic Medals in their history, claiming bronze in 1920, silver in 2000 and gold on home soil at Barcelona ’92.
In their last appearance, at London 2012, despite naming a strong squad, they crashed out in the group phase, finishing bottom below Japan, Honduras and Morocco.
This time though, the Real Federación Española de Fútbol are going all out to bring home a medal.
Luis de la Fuente has named an incredibly strong squad featuring six players who were apart of the senior national team that reached the semi-finals of Euro 2020.
These are goalkeeper Unai Simón, centre-backs Eric García and Pau Torres, Young Player of the Tournament Pedri and attackers Dani Olmo and Mikel Oyarzabal.
That’s not all: Dani Ceballos will captain the side and Marco Asensio, who’s won two Champions Leagues, scoring in the 2017 Final, are also involved.
One could make an XI using players from this squad that would’ve been competitive at the European Championships.
So, Spain are expected to bring home a medal, preferably a gold one, so should start their campaign with a win in Sapporo.
Egypt meanwhile have qualified for a 12th Olympics although this is just their second appearance since 1992.
Nine years ago, the Pharos beat Belarus in Glasgow to reach the quarter-finals where Japan ended their run.
Head Coach Shawky Gharieb played for them at the 1984 Olympics where they also reached the last eight in LA, eventually beaten by France.
This time, he’s named an almost-exclusively domestic-based squad; Ahmed Hegazi of Saudi side Al-Ittihad is the only one who plays abroad.
The former West Brom centre-back is one of three overaged players alongside goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy and fellow centre-back Mahmoud Hamdy.
Group C also contains Argentina and Australia; the European and South American giants are big favourites to reach the knockout rounds.
Will Spain lay down a marker at Sapporo Dōme?
Prediction: Egypt 1-3 Spain
Spain have won 12 of 19 Olympic Games matches since it became an under-23 competition.
