Tokyo Olympics 2020: Brazil beats Germany in Football, Australia stuns 2 time gold medalist Argentina

In the Olympic Games, even though the focus is not on sports like football or tennis as much as on other sports including athletics, hockey or boxing, but despite this, these sports also have their own special adventure in the Olympics. 
The most recent examples of this have been seen in the Tokyo Olympics 2020, where there have been two major upsets in the first two days. On July 21, the first day of the Games, women's soccer world champions America suffered a shocking 3-0 defeat at the hands of Sweden. Now on the second day on Thursday 22 July, two-time Olympic champion Argentina in the men's section was surprised by a weak team like Australia. At the same time, the current Olympic champion Brazil registered a resounding victory over Germany.

The Argentine team, which won the Olympic gold medal in 2004 and 2008, lost 2–0 at the hands of Australia. This win was very special for Australia as not only did it beat a stronger team than itself, but after the 2008 Olympics, returning to these games and starting with a straight win. Australia scored one goal each in both the half of the match. For the team, Lachlan Wells scored in the 14th minute to give a 1-0 lead in the first half. At the same time, Marco Tillio, who came as a substitute in the second half, scored the second goal in the 80th minute, giving the team a memorable victory.

Richarlison's hat-trick gives Brazil an easy win

With this win, Australia has secured the top spot in Group C. Apart from Australia and Argentina, Egypt and Spain are also in this group, between which the match ended in a 0-0 draw. At the same time, the defending champions Brazil started their campaign in a tremendous way. The Brazilian team, filled with many experienced players, defeated Germany 4-2 in the Group D match. Striker Richarlison scored a hat-trick within half an hour to give Brazil a 3-0 lead. Richarlison scored in the 7th, 22nd and 30th minutes. However, in the second half, Germany tried hard to come back by scoring two goals, but in injury time, Brazil scored the fourth goal to ensure victory. In another Group D match, Ivory Coast beat Saudi Arabia 2-1.

In other matches, hosts Japan scored a 1-0 win over South Africa in a Group A match with Takefusa Kubo scoring in the 71st minute. In the same group, Mexico defeated France 4-1. In Group B, New Zealand started the campaign with a win by beating South Korea 1–0 with Chris Wood's 70th minute goal. In another match, Romania beat Honduras 1-0.
