Everton forward Richardson performed a hat-trick in the first half and Brazil began their Olympic journey with a 42-game victory over Germany. In the replay of the 2016 Olympic gold medal match, although Matthew Scuna had a stop penalty, the defending champion still dominated. Richarlison grabbed a rebound in 7 minutes, then went home for the second time in 30 minutes and curled his third.

The German team fought more after the intermission. Nadim Amiri and Ragnar Archer scored 32 goals, which made the Brazilian team nervous.

But Bayer Leverkusen striker Paulinho performed well in stoppage time, scoring 42 points, allowing the game to surpass the Germans.

Pedri failed to motivate Spain against Egypt

Former West Brom defender Ahmed Hegazi (Ahmed Hegazi) played a key role in keeping Spain out.

Along with Pedri, several members of the Spanish team for Euro 2020 attended the game. Mikel Oyazabal, Danny Olmo, Paul Torres and Eric Garcia are all in the starting lineup middle.
