The hosts take on the pre-tournament favourites for a place in the Men’s Olympic Football Gold Medal match.

Japan, as host nation, have been targeting success at this competition for many years, taking a predominantly under-22s side to Copa América 2019 as part of their preparations.

All of it appears to have paid off because the Samurai Blue cruised through the group stages.

They beat South Africa 1-0 and Mexico 2-1 before booking their place in the knockout phase by demolishing France 4-0.

Then, on Saturday, Hajime Moriyasu’s side took on a very stubborn New Zealand and, after over two hours of play, it remained goalless.

In the penalty shootout, Kosei Tani saved the Kiwi’s second attempt while Ayase Ueda, Ko Itakura, Yuta Nakayama and Maya Yoshida all scored as Japan got through.

The Samurai Blue have previously won just one Men’s Olympic Football medal, claiming Bronze way back in 1968.

They came close in 2012 but lost to Mexico in the semi-final before going down 2-0 in Cardiff to rivals Korea Republic in the Bronze Medal match.

Will the host country move a step closer to an historic gold?

Spain though were the pre-tournament favourites and have managed to get this far.

La Rojita finished first in Group C despite only amassing five points, narrowly beating Australia but drawing with Egypt and Argentina.

In the quarter-finals, they went 1-0 down against Ivory Coast early before drawing level through Dani Olmo on the hour mark.

Spain were then seconds away from going out when the Ivorians took the lead in the 91st minute, only for Rafa Mir to equalise in the third minute of added time.

Disheartened by this, the African side crumbled in extra time, eventually losing 5-2, with Mikel Oyarzabal converting a penalty before Mir completed his hat-trick.

Spain’s only gold in Men’s Olympics Football came on home soil in 1992; they’ve also won silver in 1920 and 2000.

Will Luis de la Fuente’s ridiculously talented squad now get through to the final?

2012 Gold Medalists Mexico face 2016 Gold Medalists Brazil in the other semi-final but who will win this one at Saitama Stadium?

Prediction: Japan 1-2 Spain

These two last met at a Men’s Olympics Football tournament in 2012 with Japan enjoying a surprise 1-0 victory in Glasgow.
