Top 5 Spanish Footballers To Watch In The 2020 Tokyo Olympics

For the Tokyo Olympics 2020, Spain will feature six players from the Euro 2020 side who reached the competition’s semi-finals, and they will be favorites to win gold.
Together with Brazil, La Furia Roja has one of the most star-studded squads.
Based on the current draw, the two teams could meet in the quarter-finals.
The Spanish haven’t won an Olympic gold medal since 1992, so the pressure is on this bunch of young players, many of whom are expected to break through in the next several years.
Thus, without further ado, here are five Spanish athletes to keep an eye on at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
#5 Pau Torres Japan vs. Spain – U-24 International Friendly After some strong performances for Villarreal and the Spanish national team in the previous year or two, the centre-back’s stock has risen.
Torres was a significant member of the Spanish team that advanced to the Euro 2020 semi-finals before losing on penalties to Italy.
Torres provided resiliency at the back in the absence of Sergio Ramos and is one of the best young ball-playing defenders in the world.
Unai Simon, Pau Torres, Mikel Oyarzabal, Eric Garcia, Pedri, and Dani Olmo, together with Marco Asensio and Dani Ceballos, will be busy this summer as members of the Olympic squad for #Tokyo2020.
— Rohith Nair (@RohithNair) July 7, 2021 The centre-back’s remarkable form for Villarreal, with whom he won the Europa League, is only the beginning, as he has been linked with a number of big European clubs.
He is one of the most senior members of the Spanish Olympic team, and his performances at the heart of the defense will be crucial.
#4 Dani Olmo Dani Olmo has replicated his great performances for RB Leipzig for Spain on the international scene.
Coach Luis de la Fuente will rely on his versatility to play anywhere in the front three or even in midfield.
Olmo might play in his favored offensive midfield position, and his ability to choose a pass in the final third will make him the team’s creative heartbeat.
Olmo had a strong showing at Euro 2020, recording three assists in five outings.
Before returning to his club, he will hope for another successful performance at the Tokyo Olympics.
