Soccer events in Tokyo Olympics: Japan got off to great start with 1-0 win over South Africa

At the soccer events in the Tokyo Olympics, which began yesterday, hosts Japan got off to a great start with a 1-0 win over South Africa. In other matches, striker Richarlison scored a first-half hat-trick as Brazil’s men began their Olympic campaign with a 4-2 victory over Germany. But, it was a tough opening match of the Olympic campaign for Argentina in Group ‘C’ as they suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Australia.

 

Ivory Coast won 2-1 against Saudi Arabia and Spain were held to a goalless draw by Egypt in the opening game of the men’s competition. France’s Olympic tournament got off to a disastrous start. They lost 1-4 to Mexico. New Zealand made history with their first ever win in men’s football at the Olympics with a 1-0 victory over South Korea.
