He expressed Louis de Lafonte The coach of the Spanish Olympic team, expressed his sadness over the draw with Egypt and the injury of the team’s duo Mengueza and Dani Ceballos.
The two left the match in the first half after sustaining an injury in front of Egypt, with the intervention of Ahmed Fattouh on Mingueza, and the fall of Sibayos in front of Taher Muhammad Taher.
“I have mixed feelings after the draw against Egypt, but now we are only thinking about facing Australia,” De La Fuente said in statements after the match to the Spanish radio “Cope”.
He added: “The Egyptians were able to successfully apply their method in front of us and came out with what they wanted to achieve from the first minute, which is to get a point.”
And he added, “Minguezas injury does not look good, as does Ceballos, but we will conduct medical examinations and know the diagnosis of each of them.”
He stressed, “We knew that we would face such violent interventions against the Egyptian national team, although there is a referee and VAR technology, because the problem is not the aggressiveness of the Egyptian player, but rather who is allowed to do so.”
He concluded: “I am satisfied with my team, but I am sad because of the result, and the injuries affected us. We gradually improved in the end, but we did not achieve what we were seeking.”
