LIVE: Australia v Egypt | Tokyo Olympics

Egypt’s U23 football side have only one option if they are to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Tokyo Olympic Games — beating Australia in their final Group C clash on Wednesday.

The Pharaohs held European heavyweights Spain to a surprise 0-0 draw in their opening group-stage game after producing a solid defensive display, but a similar strategy backfired in their following match against Argentina.

Argentina netted from a rare clear-cut opportunity to secure a narrow 1-0 victory as Egypt failed to claw their way back to the game after looking short of ideas and creativity.

Egypt are at the bottom of the group with one point, two behind Argentina and Australia and three adrift of leaders Spain in a tight race for two quarter-final tickets.
