These are going to be a priori starting goalkeepers of the 16 teams who will participate in the men’s soccer tournament of the Olympic Games:
24-year-old goalkeeper who plays for Stuttgart in the Bundesliga. He has played this season for Freiburg, on loan from Mainz. He is part of the new generation of footballers that the Teutons are going to bring to these Games and he had barely played 2 matches as U21
He is a few days away from his 24th birthday, but due to the expansion of the quota, he falls within the sub23 of this edition. He plays for Al Ahli in his country, which is the club that contributes almost all the players to the national team
Well-known goalkeeper in our league, as he has had a very good campaign with Cádiz, one of the revelation teams. At 28 years old, he is the only ‘older’ player who will take the albiceleste to the tournament.
Glover is one of the most experienced players the Australians will bring to their Tokyo soccer team. He plays for Melbourne City in his country and with 9 games is the fourth that has played the most as a sub23.
A priori, in Brazil the ownership of the goal corresponds to Brenno. Santos could take it off, who at 31 has a unique opportunity with these Olympians, although I bet on the goal of the Guild. He is one of the future goalkeepers of La Canarinha
Song Bum-keun is the goalkeeper who will surely choose the South Korean team. He is 23 years old and plays for Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors in his country
The elephants will carry two extremely young goalkeepers and one a little more veteran, such as Tape. Everything in quotes, because he is barely 23 years old. Play in the San Pedro of the Ivorian league
We also mentioned El Shenawy yesterday as one of those ‘older’ players who will go with the Egypt team. With 32 years, his seniority will be a degree to cover the goal of the African team, the first rival of the Spanish team.
Another goal where I am not clear who will be the starter is that of the national team. Perhaps the stripes of Unai, who has made a great European Championship, will give him the starting position. He will be one of the 8 players who ‘doubled’ after the tournament with the absolute.
Bernardoni is a veteran in the goal of the French U21 team. The Angers goalkeeper has been in it since 2017, when he was just 20 years old. He was chosen in the last European and will close his cycle with this team in Tokyo.
Honduras is becoming a regular at the Olympics. This time the goal chosen to cover his goal should be Güity, who at 23 years old plays for Olimpia in his country.
Osako will turn 22 during the tournament, which tells us how young he is. Even so, he is the oldest goal of the 3 that the hosts will carry and he is the one who will start as a starter. Play in the Sanfrecce Hiroshima of the J-League
With 36 years, Ochoa has decided to participate in these Olympic Games that will be very special for him. The ‘Memo’ is one of the best goalkeepers in the history of Mexico and this opportunity is once in his life. The Aztecs will try to match the feat of 9 years ago, when they won gold in London against Brazil.
New Zealand is another team that has chosen to bring all of its extremely young players, with the two exceptions of the older ones. Woud is their oldest goalkeeper at 22 years. He plays for Almere, in the Dutch second division.
The Romanian team is one of the surprises of this edition at the Olympic Games. They will also have a very young block, where most of them were not even in the European Championship two years ago. A clear example is the goalkeepers, where Aioani should be the starter. He is 21 years old and plays for Constanta in his country.
As in the case of Argentina, South Africa has only one player over 23 years old and he is also the goalkeeper. Williams should be the starter. He is 29 years old and plays for SuperSport United in his country.
