LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Japan vs. Egypt 2012 are heading to the Olympics Quarterfinals in Manchester. Japan vs. Egypt 2012 is the second Mens’ soccer match confirmed to fans and news today after the stunning conclusion of matches earlier today. The Japan vs. Egypt showdown will be August 4 (en vivo at Old Trafford) and broadcasted later, tape delayed.
Japan advanced today by finishing first in Group D. Japan’s performance in group round play was superb, delivering seven points to rank first in its division. Japan’s opening match ended with a 1-0 win against Spain after Otsu scored at the thirty-four minute mark. Then, Nagai impressed news delivering the game winning goal at the eighty-four minute mark against Morocco. Today, Japan vs. Honduras ended with a scoreless draw, advancing both teams to the quarterfinals.
While Japan won its group, Egypt has demonstrated a far more impressive offense this tournament. Today’s Egypt vs. Belarus game ended with a 3-1 win for Egypt after its players Salah, Mohsen and Aboutrika scored. The team earned a draw last week against New Zealand with Salah scoring. And the team’s only loss remains its opener against Brazil. In that match, Aboutrika and Salah delivered the numbers at the fifty-two and seventy-six minute marks, respectively.
Officials tell news today that all Olympic quarterfinal matches will be played Saturday. The semi-finals matches will kick off then on Tuesday. The bronze medal showdown will be next Friday followed by the gold medal match on Saturday, live at Wembley Stadium.
Two teams are left to be revealed for the quarterfinals. But currently also advancing to the quarterfinals are Mexico, Honduras, Brazil and South Korea.
