    Egypt have a major absence within their ranks as Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah is not included in the men's football team during the 2020 Olympic Games.

    Salah publicly expressed his desire to be part of his national team as a senior player and was included in the provisional squad but the Reds didn't grant that wish as they are undergoing pre-season training.

    European clubs are not required to allow players to compete in the Olympics because the tournament is not recognised as part of Fifa's official calendar.

    The star forward has registered a total of 45 goals in 70 caps for the Pharaohs and is his country's second all-time goalscorer behind Hossam Hassan, who amassed 68 goals in 176 matches.

    Richarlison is not the only senior player competing for Brazil in the Tokyo Olympics as Dani Alves wears his nation's armband.

    In fact, Alves is the eldest of the group as the Sao Paulo star recently turned 38, but he has shown no signs of slowing down.

    The legendary right-back is considered as one of the absolute greatest players to don the Selecao jersey as he has amassed a total of 118 caps across all competitions.

    The Brazilian star has stood out during his time at Sevilla, Barcelona, Juventus as well as Paris Saint-Germain and won a total of 43 major honours throughout his glittering 20-year career.

    Everton star Richarlison has shone bright for Brazil during the Tokyo Olympics, shortly after helping his country reach the Copa America Final.

    The talented forward is currently the top scorer of the men's football category with a whopping five goals in three matches for the Selecao.

    The 24-year-old is one ahead of France international Andre-Pierre Gignac, another senior player who is leading the way for his country's young side.

    Richarlison arrived in Japan with a total of 10 goals in 32 caps with the senior national team across all competitions under his belt.

    Egypt made it through to the quarter-finals of the Tokyo Olympics after finishing second in Group C behind Spain.

    The Pharaohs' record in the group stage wasn't exactly stellar as they only won one out of their three matches and lost once.

    However, a late 2-0 victory over Australia, thanks to goals by Amhed Rayan and Amar Hamdy, was enough to get them to the play-offs.

    Nevertheless, Shawky Gharieb's side have proved that they are no pushovers as they've only conceded one goal in their three matches at the Olympics so far.

    Although they have only scored twice, the Egyptians have proven that they can still get a result as they managed an important 0-0 draw with Spain.

    Brazil are among the favourites to win the gold medal in the Tokyo Olympics and proved it during the group stage.

    The Selecao are undefeated in these Games after winning two out of three matches in Group D – Andre Jardine's men beat Germany as well as Saudi Arabia and drew with the Ivory Coast.

    The Brazilians also scored seven goals along the way and conceded three, a tally that makes them a force to be reckoned with in Japan.

    As mentioned below, if Brazil advance then they will compete in the semi-finals for the fourth consecutive Olympic Games.

    Brazil and Egypt's first ever encounter took place way back in 1960 during a friendly match in Cairo that the visitors won comfortably with a score of 5-0.

    Since then, the two nations have faced off a total of six times, all of which have been won by the Selecao – five of those games were friendlies and one of them took place in the 2009 Confederations Cup, which the Brazilians won 4-3.

    Brazil have scored a total of 18 goals in the process and conceded a mere four by the African side.

    Today's quarter-final marks their first meeting in 10 years – their most recent match saw the Selecao winning 2-0 thanks to a brace by Jonas.

    Welcome to our live coverage of the quarter-final clash between Brazil and Egypt at the Saitama Stadium in the 2020 Olympics.

    The Selecao topped Group D to make it through to the knockout stages whereas the Pharaohs advanced after finishing second in Group C.

    Brazil manager Andre Jardine is set for a major boost in his nation's bid to make the semi-finals for the fourth consecutive Olympic Games.

    Aston Villa ace Douglas Luiz is back to the fold after being sent off during the goalless draw with Ivory Coast – the midfielder served his suspension in the win against Saudi Arabia.

    Luiz is likely to come back into the starting line-up, with Gremio player Matheus Henrique dropping back to the bench, and that is the only likely change Jardine will be making.

    Egypt manager Shawky Gharieb is also unlikely to make any significant changes as he would probably prefer to stick with what brought the Pharaohs this far.

    Thus, Gharieb will continue using his preferred 3-5-2 formation, which served him well during the 2-0 win against Australia in the group stage.

    Former West Brom ace Ahmed Hegazi will be leading the Egyptians' back-three as one of their over-age players at the Olympics.
