Team Spain Olympic Football squad

Olympics

Player to watch out for: Juan Mata

The former Valencia midfielder had an outstanding debut season for the Stamford Bridge club and will provide the creative thrust for La Roja. Mata was scarcely used by Del Bosque during the senior team’s triumph at the European Championship but would be the leading light for Mila’s young guns.

Japan

Japan qualified handsomely in their qualifying group with the defeat against Syria being the only downer. Coach Takashi Sekizuka’s side conceded just six goals in the entire campaign while helping themselves to 17 goals in eight games. Although Japan have fared poorly at the previous games, the quality of the other teams in the group barring the obvious favourites should ensure that the Japanese remain second best bet to progress.

The Blue Samurai have decided against including any of their experienced stars and that might hamper their chances.

Japan Full Squad: Shuichi Gonda, Shunsuke Ando, Akihiro Hayashi, Yuhei Tokunaga, Maya Yoshida, Kazuya Yamamura, Daisuke Suzuki, Hiroki Sakai, Gotoku Sakai, Kazuki Oiwa JEF, Hiroshi Kiyotake, Taisuke Muramatsu, Keigo Higashi, Hotaru Yamaguchi, Takahiro Ogihara, Takashi Usami, Takuji Yonemoto, Kensuke Nagai, Yuki Otsu, Manabu Saito, Kenyu Sugimoto, Ryohei Yamazaki

Player to watch out for: Takashi Usami

The 20-year-old Gamba Osaka man had a decent season for Bayern Munich’s second side on a loan stint and will undoubtedly be Japan’s most potent attacking threat. Takashi’s versatility is the key as the diminutive midfield sensation can play either as the second striker, on the wings and most impressively as the attacking midfielder in a three-man midfield.
