Brazil instills fear in Olympic soccer. No losses, everything perfect for the Seleção. But now things get serious, we are in the quarterfinals and the game is against Egypt at Saitama Stadium on July 31, 2021 at 6:00 AM (ET). The pharaohs have fought hard to get where they are.
Egypt had a rough ride in the first round. The first tournament game for them at the 2020 Olympic Games was against Spain. But the Egyptians knew how to hold La Roja to draw 0-0. The other challenge for the Africans was Argentina, but that game was a 1-0 defeat. Egypt's only victory in the tournament was against Australia 2-0 in the last round.
It is true that the negative results of the other teams in the group helped Egypt to qualify for the next round (quarterfinals). But the fight in the Group C was bloody. The goals difference (+1) saved Egypt from being eliminated from the event.

Brazil vs Egypt: Storylines
Brazil is looking for gold, not in an Amazon mine, but in Japan. The champions of the last edition of the 2012 Olympic Games aim to repeat the same feat achieved in London. On that occasion, the Seleção played the quarterfinals against Colombia (2-0), the semi-final against Honduras (6-0) and the final against Germany 1-1 and 5-4 in penalty shootouts.
Egypt was not present at the 2012 tournament in London. The last time the Egyptians played soccer at the olympic games was in 1964. On that occasion they finished the tournament in fourth place. But that story is too old to compare with the present, Egypt is much better than before.
The Brazilians know of the tough fight that the Egyptians gave against Spain to hold all 90 minutes without conceding goals. Besides that, the Pharaohs won against Australia, and that team is one of the toughest in defense. But Brazil can break anyone, this tournament seems to be made to be dominated by them.
