Africa’s hopes to win gold medal in football at Tokyo Olympics ends
It is now very clear that Africa will not win a gold medal in football at this year’s Olympics.
This is as a result of the exit of the continent’s last two teams left.
Egypt and Ivory Coast were both eliminated at the quarter-final stage on Saturday.
South Africa and Zambia’s women had already been sent packing in the group stage, before the Pharaohs and the Petits Elephants were dumped out by Brazil and Spain respectively in their last Eight fixtures.
This means for only the third time since 1988, Africa will not have a team finishing in the medal positions.
Nigeria (1996) and Cameroon (2000) won back-to-back gold medals in the men’s football event.
