Brazil Vs Egypt
razil will look to conquer their first ever gold medal and they will be looking for clean start over Egypt who will be looking desperate to register their first win against yellow.
Brazil have never won a gold medal in Men Olympic football and they have every possibility to change it this summer. They displayed some maturity against the British on a dominating win on a Olympic tuneup match. They won 2-0 against the hosts which might have built up some confidence.
The Group A match will kick off midnight(Nepal Standard Time GMT +5:45) when Brazil will have a clash over the African side Egypt. Since Egypt has never won Brazil, they will come up with everything they will need to start with win in Group C match.
Egypt would also look to be organized sending a positive message to their countrymen that following violence that took hundred of fans’ life in a club level match, things have improved in the Egyptian soccer establishment. So they would look to put their effort to explore message to the world that they have tremendous improvement on them.
Probable Line Up
Egypt:El-Shenawy, Fathi, Hegazy, Gaber, Milo, Hassan, El-Din Ahmed, Aboutrika, Mohsen, Motaeb, Salah
Brazil: Neto, Rafael, Silva, Juan, Marcelo, Sandro, Romulo, Oscar, Hulk, Damiao, Neymar
Players to Watch
Egypt: Mohamed Salah might be fine striker to watch as his recent enrollment to Swiss club FC Basel in April 2012 might have collected some inspiration to the 20 year old.
Brazil: No Doubt Neymar has all of the eyes attracted on him. He, along with Hulk and recent Chelsea signing Oscar could be kept an eye on.
Spain Ol. – Japan Ol.
Out is just Iker Munian for Spain
De Gea, Jordi Alba, Montoya, Botia, Azpilicueta, Martinez, Isco, Romeu, Mata, Adrian, Tello
United Arab Emirates Ol. – Uruguay Ol.
Uruguay will face the United Arab Emirates in the first game of the 2012 London Olympic Games men’s football Group A branch of Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester on Wednesday (26/7/12). Uruguay joined in Group A: Great Britain, Senegal, United Arab Emirates, Uruguay
Uruguay one of the favorites to win Group A in perdiksi can overcome the resistance of the Arab emirate Union. See that in the Uruguay squad strengthened by Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez is likely to defeat opponents in group A and the toughest opponent was against Great Britain.
While the United Arab Emirates will provide a fierce resistance against Uruguay in the opening match of the 2012 London Olympic Games men’s football branch. United Arab Emirates are optimistic to reach the first point and qualified for the quarterfinals.
Great Britain Ol. – Senegal Ol.
Great Britain start their title chase at theb2012 London Olympics by taking on Senegal at Old Trafford and this will be anything but an easy game for the hosts.
Team GB automatically qualified for the Men’s Football Tournament at the 2012 Olympics, which may not prove to be such a good thing as boss Stuart Pearce had just a couple of weeks to work with his squad unlike most other coaches.
The former Manchester City boss caused a lot of controversy by leaving David Beckham out of the squad as he decided to allocate three over-age places to Ryan Giggs, who has been appointed captain, Craig Bellamy and Micah Richards.
Boss Stuart Pearce is likely to field a similar line-up to that which started the Brazil game, with Daniel Sturridge set to start after recovering from illness.
Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): Butland – Richards, Tomkins, Taylor, Bertrand – Ramsey, Cleverley, Allen – Bellamy, Sturridge, Giggs.
Making their first ever appearances at the Men’s Olympic Football tournament, Senegal will have something to prove, even if they have been placed in a very difficult group.
The Teranga Lions were always going to have a tough task against the likes of Great Britain and Uruguay, but the situation got even worse when the national team chiefs failed to persuade Newcastle stars Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse to join the squad.
Nevertheless, even without the two strikers, Senegal boast a pretty good squad, with Momo Diame, Papa Gueye and Ibrahima Balde the most notable players in the side.
The Teranga Lions may not be favourites in their first match at the London Olympics, but they certainly have enough attacking potential to hurt their opponents..
Key striker Dame N’Doye was forced to withdraw after his club FC Copenhagen refused to give him permission to play, with Kalidou Coulibaly Yero called as a replacement. Defender Victor Bindia is doubtful through injury.
Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): O. Mane – Bindia, Ba, P. Gueye, Souare – Kouyate, Diame, I. Gueye – Balde, S. Mane, M. Gueye.
Favourites clash on opening day
The opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games takes place on Friday 27 July in London, but Games fever breaks out all over Great Britain a full two days prior to that. The first matchday in the fifth edition of the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament is on Wednesday, and the competition opens with a bang as the schedule features a number of enticing clashes.
Match of the day
USA-France, Glasgow, 17:00 (local time)
The venerable surroundings of Hampden Park provide a worthy setting for a first-class showdown between two of the gold medal favourites. Defending Olympic champions USA missed out on glory in the final of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany 2011™ in a dramatic penalty shoot-out defeat toJapan, so the north Americans will be doubly determined to add to their glittering trophy collection this time around. However, the French finished an excellent fourth in Germany last year, heralding their arrival as members of the world elite. They will now be determined to have their say in the distribution of the medals at the London Games.
The other matches on opening day also promise local fans a treat. Current world champions Japanmeet Canada and their star striker Christine Sinclair, while Brazil, finalists in the last two Women’s Olympic Football Tournaments, set out in pursuit of gold against underdogs Cameroon. The biggest crowd of the day will enthusiastically get behind hosts Great Britain, who open the tournament against New Zealand in Cardiff. Sweden, who finished third at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany, will seek to underline their medal ambitions in their meeting with South Africa, before a potentially action-packed opening day finishes with the clash between Colombia and Korea DPR.
Player to watch
If Brazil’s Formiga appears for her team against Cameroon, she will become the only player to feature in every Women’s Olympic Football Tournament to date. The 34-year-old midfielder has made a record 21 appearances at the event, returning home with a silver medal in 2004 and 2008. The veteran is hoping to step one place further up the podium on this occasion.
6 – USA have won their last five matches at the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament. Should they beat the French, they would match the record of six consecutive victories set by Norway between 2000 and 2008.
“New Zealand have done a lot of work in the last 12 months, They work really well together as a unit. They have pace, they’re aggressive and they run and run ridiculously for 90 minutes. In all areas they have tried to improve their game and we expect a tough encounter,” Great Britain coach Hope Powell.
United Kingdom W – New Zealand W
England team has all England players + Dieke and Little. Little is player from Arsenal and she scores more than a goal per game. They have no missing problems and they won New Zealand on last world cup 2-1.
New Zealand has 10 players from Europe (England, Germany and Sweden). They won Colombia in last friendly but shovew weakneses. This is first day and there are expected lot if fans for hosts
