2020 Tokyo Olympics: Marco Asensio Fires Spain Into Final

Spain will face Brazil in the Olympics Men’s football final after penalty and extra time drama in the semi-finals.

La Roja booked their spot in the showpiece event by beating tournament hosts Japan 1-0 on Tuesday.

Marco Asensio scored the only goal of the game in extra time to set up a final meeting with Brazil at the International Yokohama Stadium this weekend.


Japan gave a great account of themselves in their last-four clash with Spain, sticking to a disciplined defensive shape while looking for opportunities to hit their opponents on the break.

La Roja was denied a penalty after a VAR review, but neither side really looked like breaking the deadlock in the first 90 minutes, and extra time was needed to find a victor.
