A total of 28 countries from the world’s six confederations will compete for medals at the Olympics. The matches were held at seven venues in six different cities.
DetikSport summarizes the top 10 players who fought in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Here is the list:
1. Takehiro Tomiyasu (Japan)
Tomiyasu is a 22-year-old defender who plays for Italian club Bologna. He made 31 appearances in the Italian League and scored two goals in the 2020/2021 season.
Squawka noted, Tomiyasu was the player with the most interceptions and clearences in Bologna last season. The defender who dropped out of Avispa Fukuoka is reportedly a target for Tottenham Hotspur.
2. Lee Kang-in (South Korea)
Lee is the youngest player in South Korea’s Olympic squad, at the age of 20. However, this one midfielder has good experience in Europe.
Lee made 24 appearances for Valencia in the 2020/2021 Spanish League and recorded four assists. His ability to process the ball is often compared to David Silva when he was younger.
3. Guillermo Ochoa (Mexico)
The 36-year-old goalkeeper was called up for Mexico at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Ochoa is a star The Tri during the 2014 World Cup campaign.
Famous for his ability to parry shots on target, Ochoa is still able to show his spurs at this age. He kept 8 clean sheets in 30 appearances in the 2020/2021 Mexican League.

4. Andre Pierre Gignac (French)
Gignac is a 35-year-old veteran of the French national team. He was called to defend Blues for the first time since 206.
The star of the Mexican club, Tigres, scored 19 goals in 38 games for his club in the 2020/2021 season. Gignac led Tigres to win the Concacaf Champions League and was able to win the title of best player and top scorer.
5. Amad Diallo (Ivory Coast)
Diallo is a young Manchester United star who was brought in from Atalanta in early 2021. The 19-year-old player has played four times in the Premier League and recorded one assist.
Diallo’s speed and skill are needed by Ivory Coast to navigate the 2020 Olympics. Man United fans will also pay attention to his actions throughout the world’s biggest sporting event this time.
