Tokyo Olympics.. Mexico and Brazil match pending accounts

Brazil and Mexico will meet in the semi-finals of the football competitions at the Olympic Games (Tokyo 2020) in a match dominated by the atmosphere of revenge on the part of “A Seleção”.

After losing in the final of the London 2012 tournament, she will face a team that has succeeded in impressing many since the beginning of the tournament, especially after scoring 15 goals so far.

Mexico’s sweeping attack may be a double-edged sword against Brazil, which appeared during the “samba dancers” matches in the tournament, who suffered in all the matches in which the opponent relied on defense, securing lines and narrowing spaces.

While she easily beat the German team 4-2 after he exchanged attacks and opened his lines in search of victory and access to the defending champion’s defenses.

The star of the Brazilian national team, Richalison, the tournament’s top scorer with five goals, preferred the teams that leave space in the back to succeed in beating Germany with three goals before adding two goals against Saudi Arabia.

Which will make him the first source of danger to the Mexican defense in the semi-finals.

As for Mexico, they reach the semi-finals at their best after defeating North Korea with six goals out of 10 shots on the opponent’s goal.

Meanwhile, veteran goalkeeper Francisco Ochoa continues his brilliance in goalkeeping to give the Tricolor team a chance to compete for a place in the final and secure a medal for his country in the Olympic competitions.

This will be the second Olympic match between Brazil and Mexico after a long history of confrontations at the level of the first team and senior competitions.

The first match between the two Olympic teams was in the 2012 London Games, in which Mexico won by two goals to one, in a match that witnessed the brilliance of striker Uribe Peralta, who scored two goals at the time, while Brazil’s only goal came through Hulk.

Mexico will be absent from the match, left-back Jorge Sanchez, due to the accumulation of cards in the meeting in which the “Tricolor” team seeks to restore the smile to the fans of his country after the loss of the first team to the Gold Cup final against the United States.
