FT - BRAZIL ARE THROUGH!

Tokyo 2020
Substitute Malcom's extra-time strike retains gold for Brazil’s men in Olympic final
07/08/2021 AT 14:04
Andre Jardine's side are deserving winners and will now play Mexico or South Korea in Tuesday's sem-final thanks to a 1-0 triumph. Matheus Cunha's 13th-minute goal proves the difference on the day.

90'+2 - Sub! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Richarlison, who has again been on the receiving end of a number of fouls, is replaced by Menino for the last minute or so.

90'- Brazil 1-0 Egypt

THREE minutes of added-time will be added on. Brazil are almost there, but can Egypt produce one last moment of drama?

89' - Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Hegazi makes a vital last-ditch tackle on Richarlison to prevent Brazil from killing the game following a beautiful attacking move.

87' - Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Panic stations in the Brazilian defence as Tawfik is left unmarked at the far post from a floated Egypt free-kick. He knocks it down but Jardine's men manage to hack it clear.
Egypt recycle the ball and here they come again on the attack as Mohsen's low shot is sent straight into the gloves of Santos.

84' - Sub! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Naser Mansy comes on for Hamdi. It's now or never for Egypt.

82' - Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Try as he might, Richarlison is unable to keep an overcooked pass in play. It hasn't quite been his day in front of goal today.

80' - Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Into the final 10 minutes and this tie remains in the balance. Apart from a devastating first-half performance against Germany, in which they scored three goals, we haven't really witnessed the best of Brazil in this tournament so far.

75' - Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Some of Brazil's defending in this tournament has been questionable and Andre Jardine won't be entirely comfortable with the current scoreline. It's all set up for a nervy finish from the Selecao's point-of-view. Have Egypt got a sting in their tail?

73' - Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Egypt are enjoying a spell in the game and perhaps this one isn't over just yet. Mohamed plays a lovely give-and-go with a team mate as he runs into the penalty area, lifting a dangerous ball across the face of goal, but Brazil scramble it clear.

71 - Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Substitute Ashour scuffs a shot at goal, it's comfortable for Santos, and the forward was in an offside position.

67' - Chance! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Paulinho is ushered through on goal but from an angle, he's unable to beat El Shenawy. Brazil still can't get put this contest to bed!

65' - SUBS! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Brazil respond with a double change of their own, Malcom and Reinier replacing Antony and Claudinho.

64' - Over! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

A rare opportunity for Egypt in this second-half as Mohsen wriggles free at the near post to meet a corner delivery but he can't direct his header on target.

62' - SUBS! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Nasser Maher and Emam Ashour come on for Rayan and El Eraki as Egypt look to find a way back into this one-sided contest.

59' - Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Brazil's domination continues - and yet they're unable to double they're unable to double their advantage. El Wensh gets just enough of the ball to take it from the toes of Richarlison inside the penalty area, but the Everton forward may have been just offside anyway.

58' - Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Great play by Antony in the build-up, but Guimaraes is asking too much of Richarlison to meet a teasing ball to the far post.

56' - Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Paulinho gets in behind Egypt's defence as Brazil launch another rapid counter-attack. But the ball gets stuck under his feet a little and he's forced to hold the ball up and wait for support, eventually rolling it across to Arana on the left flank. El Shenawy comes out to close the angle and block his attempt at a shot.

53' - Sub! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

It's the end of Cunha's game as despite returning to the field a moment ago, his number is up and he's replaced by Paulinho. Let's hope it's just a cautionary change.

51' - Injury! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Brazil are temporarily down to 10 men as Cunha appears to have tweaked something and needs attention. Possibly a hamstring problem.

48' - Big save! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

A perfectly-weighted pass releases Cunha through on goal with just the goalkeeper to beat but El Shenawy is quickly off his line and makes the save with his FACE! He requires treatment, but that was a hugely important intervention from the Egypt goalkeeper.

47' - Shot! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Antony drives to the by-line, looks up and picks out Claudinho at the edge of the penalty area. He's not confident enough to go with his right so tries the shot with the outside of his boot on his left and drags the shot well wide.

46' - Kick-off! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Egypt get the game up and running again.

Half-time: Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Brazil are in control as the players head in for the interval, with Matheus Cunha's 37th-minute goal separating the sides at the break.

45'+3 - Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Claudinho turns into space on the edge of the 'D' and gets the ball on his right foot but his shot is well over the bar.

45' - Close! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Douglas Luiz bends the free-kick around the wall but it just doesn't curl enough to find the bottom corner. Relief for Egypt.
There will be THREE minutes of added-time to play at the end of the first-half.

44' - Free-kick! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Claudinho is tripped by El Wensh right on the edge of the penalty area and Brazil have a great chance to double their advantage on the stroke of half-time.

42' - Yellow card! Brazil 1-0 Egypt

Tawfik will miss the semi-final if Egypt somehow advance as he goes into the book for a late challenge on Richarlison, and now Brazil have a free-kick on the left flank. However, the delivery - floated in by Claudinho - is too close to El Shenawy.

39' - Brazil 1-0 Egypt

A moment of real class separates the sides then as we approach half-time. Egypt had done well to contain Brazil's fluid front-line but they were caught short defensively as the Selecao broke quickly in numbers.

37' - GOAL! Brazil 1-0 Egypt (Matheus Cunha)

The deadlock is broken - and Brazil have the lead!
Egypt have a penalty appeal turned down and Brazil break at speed, spreading the ball wide to Richarlison. It's that combination again as the Everton forward throws in a couple of step-overs before rolling the ball into the path of Cunha at the top of the penalty area and he picks out the bottom corner with a low strike.

34' - Brazil 0-0 Egypt

Richarlison slaloms his way inside from the left flank before squaring it to Cunha on the edge of the penalty area. His shot is blocked and the loose ball falls to Douglas Luiz who sends a first-time effort into row-Z.

32' - Yellow card! Brazil 0-0 Egypt

Expert defending from Dani Alves who uses all of his experience to get in the way of Mohamed and block off his path to cross. Egypt retreat before Fotouh goes down in some pain following a collision with Antony, who goes into the referee's notebook.

31' - Brazil 0-0 Egypt

Brazil have had 70 per cent of possession so far and slowly it seems they're getting into their ryhthm.

29' - Save! Brazil 0-0 Egypt

Cunha and Richarlison link up with a couple of clever flicks before the latter smashes a deflected shot at goal from inside the penalty area. El Shenawy does well to make the save but hurts himself in the process, appearing to have the wind sucked out of him. But that's as close as Richarlison have come so far.

27' - Brazil 0-0 Egypt

Egypt move the ball at pace as they break forward in numbers. El Eraki is unmarked at the far post as the cross comes in but Santos is able to pluck it out of the air.

25' - Brazil 0-0 Egypt

El Eraki comes away with the ball after successfully muscling Richarlison off the ball in midfield but then completely miscues his pass and gives back Brazil possession.

24' - Brazil 0-0 Egypt

No shots on target have been registered just yet, but despite being huge underdogs, Egypt have probably looked more dangerous going forward.

21' - Brazil 0-0 Egypt

El Shenawy requires treatment after taking a knock while punching clear Dani Alves' cross - but the Egypt shot-stopper gathers himself and should be fine to continue.

19' - Brazil 0-0 Egypt

Richarlison appears to be shoved in the back and wants a free-kick but the referee signals for play to continue. Antony then tries to slip in Cunha after being gifted the ball on the edge of the penalty area following a loose ball from the Egypt defence but gets too much zip on the pass.

16' - Shot! Brazil 0-0 Egypt

Antony cuts inside and has options to his left but opts to go it alone and shoots over from the edge of the penalty area.

13' - Close! Brazil 0-0 Egypt

Egypt have the first real shot on goal - and they're not only a whisker away from breaking the deadlock! Brazil make a mess of clearing El Eraki's cross and Tawfik's instinctive header is just inches wide of Santos' far post.

9' - Brazil 0-0 Egypt

A neat ball over the top from Douglas Luiz finds Richarlison on the right side of the penalty area and his cross is deflected behind for Brazil's second corner. The ball is delivered deep, it's headed back across the face of goal but Egypt scramble it clear.

6' - Brazil 0-0 Egypt

Brazil win their first corner of the game after Diego Carlos picked out Dani Alves with a delicious ball to the flank. The former Sevilla wing-back floats in a cross, searching for Ricarlison or Cunha, but El Shenawy is first to the ball, tipping it over the bar.

5' - Brazil 0-0 Egypt

When Brazil manage to pass around the high press, they'll come up against a very well organised Egypt defence.

4' - Brazil 0-0 Egypt

Egypt are using the high press, preventing Brazil from getting into any kind of early rhythm. It's all Andre Jardine's side at the moment, but their possession has been mostly in midfield and defence.

2' - Brazil 0-0 Egypt

Barely a minute on the clock and Richarlison has already been fouled, the Everton forward winning a free-kick in midfield.

1' - KICK-OFF! Brazil 0-0 Egypt

Brazil get us underway!

HERE COME THE PLAYERS

Brazil - in their famous yellow and blue - and Egypt - in red, white and black - make their way out onto the pitch. It's time for the national anthems!

RICARLISON HUNTING RECORDS

The Everton forward is now just two shy of equalling Romario's record - set in 1988 - for most goals scored by a Brazilian at one Olympic Games. So how does that feel?
"The most important thing to me is to win a gold medal with my team mates, regardless of whether I finish as top scorer," Richarlison told FIFA.com.
"But obviously Romario is a legend of world football and a Brazilian idol, so achieving this landmark would give me double the happiness.
"It would be a very important milestone for me, my family and my team mates."

LAST TIME OUT

Richarlison scored his fourth and fifth goals of the tournament as Brazil scored twice in the last 20 minutes to see off a brave Saudi Arabia in a

ONE CHANGE FOR BRAZIL

There's just one change from Andre Jardine's side that beat Saudi Arabia 3-1 on Wednesday, with Douglas Luiz returning from suspension to replace Matheus Henrique in central midfield. Antony keeps his place in attack despite a below-par performance meaning Malcom - who impressed as a substitute last time out - has to make do with a place on the bench once more.

AS YOU WERE FOR EGYPT

It's as you were for Egypt, as Gharieb Shawky sticks with the side that ran out comfortable 2-0 winners over Australia on Wednesday. A solid team built on defence, former West Brom defender Ahmed Hegazi is the captain.
