On Friday, Aug. 6, host Japan will compete with Mexico for the bronze medal in this year’s Olympic Cup men’s soccer tournament.
The Japanese National Olympic Team, as the host team, has not suffered any defeats in the group stage so far in regular time, with three wins and two draws.
A solid backline of three overage players has been the key to Japan conceding very few goals in this year’s Olympics. They only conceded 1 goal in total in regular time, so you can trust their defensive solidity!
The Japan didn’t perform badly against the stronger Spain, and they almost dragged the Spanish U23s into the penalty shootout. But unfortunately, the last moment was lost and they failed to achieve the feat of reaching the Olympic final for the first time in their history.
The main left winger, Kaoru Sandou, was plagued by injuries before the Olympics, and he mostly came on as a substitute in this Olympics. The last game was a failure to make the roster, which had a significant impact on Japan’s left side of the attack.
The main center back, Kenyo Tomiyasu, was suspended for the last game, but he can come back from suspension for this game.
The Mexican national team is still stable in attack, with an average efficiency of more than 2 goals per game. Only 1 of the last 14 matches in all competitions has not scored.
Mexico has called in the best players of the age group for this tournament, and there is also a very experienced veteran Ochoa leading the team, which has the strength to compete for medals.
So far, the Mexican delegation has won only three bronze medals at the Tokyo Olympics, ranking 76th in the medal table. The medals in soccer are highly valuable, and the Mexican Olympic delegation is eager to add honor to their country.
Therefore, this time with Japan again to play for Mexico is not only a battle of revenge, but also about whether to get a medal, I believe they will not be perfunctory.
H2H: The Japanese National Olympic Team has an absolute advantage with a proud record of 3 wins and 1 loss in the last 4 games against Mexico.
In the group stage of this year’s Tokyo Olympics, the Japanese National Olympic Team also defeated the Mexican National Olympic Team 2-1.
Mexico, as the American powerhouse, won the Olympic gold medal in 2012.The team is very good and solid overall, with a solid back line. At the same time, they are also a sharp attacking team with excellent footwork, scoring in almost every game.
It is also worth mentioning that Mexico is currently the only team that can break Japan’s goal in 90 minutes. I hope Mexico can hold on in the 90 minutes.
