Their rival in the penultimate match of the Olympic championship (this Tuesday, August 3 at 1:00 p.m. on Eurosport) will be the host Japan, intractable in the group stage, in which they beat Mexico, South Africa and France, and that he ran into a disciplined New Zealand team and his goalkeeper, Michael Woud, who aborted all attempts that came to him.

The madridista Take kubo, the great threat of the Japanese (three goals in the tournament) was one more day very active. He assisted the teammates and was the one who finished the most, although without precision. It bothered, but it did not end up unbalancing the well-armed ‘kiwi’ box. The clash went to penalties, where Japan hit all their shots, while Kosei Tani saved the shot by Liberato Cacace and Clayton Lewis finished high. Yoshida put the final 4-2.
