There are many world-class footballers who are showing the reason for their condition at the Olympics. Having reached the semifinals, we can safely say that these are the best players still alive at the Olympics.
As expected, all the quotas are distributed between the Brazilian and Spanish teams, which except for a surprise will face each other in the final:
The Villarreal center-back has not completed a dream Eurocup, but at the Olympics he is gradually regaining the level with which he closed the season at Villarreal. He is a center-back for the future who will undoubtedly give many joys to Luis Enrique’s national team. Villarreal has to manage the situation very well so that Pau Torres remains at the club for several seasons. He is a footballer who is already prepared to make the leap to a World Top team.
The Brazilian central defender of Sevilla is the power turned athlete. His enviable physical power makes him one of the most fearsome centrals in the Spanish league. His last two seasons at the Seville club have been to frame. In the Olympics he is being the leader of the rear of the Rio team.
The Aston Villa has an organizing pivot for a while. Few players treat the ball with the simplicity, security and quality of Douglas Luiz. The Brazilian seems to be happy at his club, but a jump to one more step would not be too great for him. His ephemeral time in the Spanish league will not be remembered, but right now he is a much better footballer. Leader of the center of the field of this selection.
If he continues to play at this level, he will have very little time left at RB Leipzig. This summer, two of the best teams in the world have already been interested in the Spanish footballer: Bayern and Barça. Everything indicates that when he has to decide his future destiny, these two teams will be his main priorities. The decision will not be easy.
Richarlison is the main offensive weapon of the Brazilian team. His season at Everton has not been the most fruitful in terms of scoring numbers, but his contribution to the game is always essential. His drop in level was accompanied by a decrease in the performance of his team, and the Brazilian is a key player in any scheme that arises. If he wants to continue growing, he shouldn’t stagnate for many years in the Liverpool team.
With him playing one of the two games that remain for the national team at least, he will become the player who has played the most games in the season in the world, thus surpassing Bruno Fernandes. We all know that he is an extraordinary player but the insulting load of minutes that he carries on his back is reducing his performance in the last games. You deserve a break.
