London Olympics 2012 Soccer schedule: Brazil Vs Egypt preview
London Olympics 2012 Soccer schedule is going to be action packed. Brazil vs Egypt match will certainly be very interesting. Read the preview
London 2012 Olympic soccer mania has begun even before the opening ceremony of the biggest sporting event in the world. Several soccer matches are planned for today, but the one that is grabbing the attention of the soccer fans is none other than the match involving the top soccer team Brazil and minnows Egypt. Brazil will be eager to show the might of its firing power to the soccer world, whereas Egypt will be trying to show to the world that it has wherewithal to match the best teams, even the mighty Brazil, and compete well in the tournament.
The Egyptian team would also be sending a message to their countrymen that following a bloody after match violence that killed around a hundred soccer fans in a club level match, things have improved in the Egyptian soccer establishment. They will be struggling to showcase to the world that they have improved tremendously since their disastrous exit from the 1992 Olympic games.
But I am not sure if they have any chance, especially against a team that is one of the best and in great form. Brazil, along with Spain are favourite to win the soccer gold medal in London and many expect them to give very tough time to their opponents throughout the tournament.
Egyptian soccer coach Hany Ramzy was all praise for his team and confident that they will be able to come up with excellent show today. “We have to show that despite the problems in our country we are still proud to play for Egypt…We have to show that football in Egypt is still alive. Hopefully in the end we can show that we still have the sport of football in our country”.
Egyptian soccer team will be looking forward to players like Ahmed Hegazy and Mohamed Salah who have shown their soccer skills in recent years.
But for Brazil, Egyptian team doesn’t pose any threat. last year they beat them 2-0 very comfortably and they will be looking forward to win the match with bigger margin. The match at Millennium Stadium, Cardiff may hopefully its bad Olympic record to an end. Brazil has never won an Olympic soccer gold medal.
