Argentina will take on Australia in the Group C match of the Tokyo Olympics on 22nd July at the Sapporo Dome.
Argentina has gone to great lengths to create a team capable of winning the country’s third Olympic men’s soccer gold title. The 22 players in the current squad play in eight different countries in club soccer, including Spain, England, Mexico, and the United States.
Fernando Batista‘s team enters Japan in strong shape after victories over Denmark and Saudi Arabia in their friendly matches played in June.
Australia have competed in every Olympic men’s soccer event from 1988 through 2008. After failing to qualify for the London and Rio Olympics, the Olyroos will return to the Olympics this summer.
After losing three June friendlies, including an ugly 2-1 loss to Ireland’s U-21 squad, they will look to regain some momentum early in the competition.
Argentina U-23 and Australia U-23 have faced each other only once which was in the 2004 Olympics where Argentina came out on top defeating Australia 1-0.
