What was the last result between Spain and Ivory Coast?
The Spanish sub23 team has not seen the faces with the Ivorians. At the absolute level, they only met in a friendly on March 1, 2006, with a Spanish victory (3-2). That match at the José Zorrilla de Valladolid saw the Africans twice ahead on the scoreboard thanks to Abdul Kader Keita and Bonaventure Kalou. David Villa and José Antonio Reyes tied, with Juan Gutiérrez “Juanito” in charge of giving the winning goal.
Spain finished as the leader of Group C after drawing with Egypt (0-0) and Argentina (1-1), with a win interspersed against Australia (0-1). It is the first time in his history that he has entered the knockout rounds without winning his first match.
The best historical results vary depending on which team played the tournament. The absolute was runner-up in Antwerp 1920, with the amateur reaching the quarterfinals of Mexico 1968 and the sub23 achieving a gold in Barcelona 1992 and a silver in Sydney 2000. Now sensations are recovering after not qualifying for Athens 2004, Beijing 2008 and Rio de Janeiro 2016, with one elimination in the London 2012 group stage.
Luis De La Fuente will not be able to count on the injured Daniel Ceballos and Oscar Mingueza will have doubts. He will not have insurance with the suspended Óscar Gil, who saw his second yellow of the tournament in the last match.
Côte d’Ivoire has just finished second in Group D. They did it after winning (2-1) against Saudi Arabia and drawing against Brazil (0-0) and Germany (1-1). They precisely left the Teutons out, preventing them from beating them by finishing one point less than them.
The African team had only participated in one Olympic Games in its history before the current ones. Its precedent is Beijing 2008, where it reached the quarterfinals. In doing so, you are matching your best record.
Soualiho Haidara will be able to count on all his players, since he has no injuries in the squad and Eboué Kouassi has already served his sanction after being sent off in the second round of the group stage against Brazil.
Unai Simón – Marc Cucurella, Pau Torres, Eric García, Jesús Vallejo – Martín Zubimendi, Mikel Merino, Pedro González “Pedri” – Daniel Olmo, Mikel Oyarzábal, Marco Asensio
