The merengue team will contribute five footballers to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games soccer tournament, being surpassed only by the Olimpia Club of Honduras (7) and Al Ahly of Egypt).
The Saudi Al-Nassr, the New Zealand Wellington Phoenix, the Romanian Farul Constanta and the South Korean Ulsan Hyundai will also carry five. With four representatives we find the Real Sociedad, the Saudi Al-Ahli, the Egyptian Zamalek, the Australian Melbourne City, the Mexican Guadalajara and Club America, the South African Supersport United and the Portuguese Vitoria Guimaraes.
The 20-year-old Japanese right winger has played 11 games with the senior team, making him one of those that should be fixed by hierarchy, but also by quality, in Hajime Moriyasu’s selection.
The 24-year-old Spanish defender has not debuted with The Red, but he has 22 stakes of experience in the U21 team. It seems difficult to see him in many minutes with the central roster, although there could be a break for those who have been in the Eurocup.
The 24-year-old Spanish midfielder has 11 appearances as an absolute international and, as an aspect to highlight, he wore the bracelet in the friendly against Japan, a fact that shows his hierarchical weight. It is expected to be practically immovable from the eleven.
The 25-year-old right winger accumulates 26 matches with the Spanish senior team and, looking at the list of attackers, he is one of the most talented despite having been diluted in recent years. You’d be surprised not to see him for quite a few minutes.
The 19-year-old Brazilian striker, owned by merengue but on loan until the end of next year at Borussia Dortmund, will defend the colors of Brazil. He has not made his debut with the senior team, but has added nine matches with the U23 team.
We will not see Vinícius Júnior or Rodrygo Goes, who were not authorized by Real Madrid to play the competition.
