"We're sitting here today with the qualification ticket in hand, it's up to us, we don't depend on someone else having to beat someone else," Arnold added.

Regarding the loss to Spain in the last round, the Australia coach commented, "I thought we defended great, we can play better with the ball of course, and we will improve that."

On Australia's absence against Egypt due to the accumulation of cards, Arnold commented, "We have depth in the list. We have new players ready to go."

He continued, "We've shown previously that we can play in different ways and with different players and we have a lot of depth so you can't look at the negatives, look at the positives."

"Well, three players have been suspended but they will be ready for the quarter-finals," the Australian coach concluded.

The date of the match between Egypt and Australia


The Olympic team will play its third match in the Tokyo Olympics at 1 pm tomorrow, Wednesday, against its Australian counterpart, in a meeting that is not divisible by two, after the team tied in its first match against Spain with a scoreless, while losing in the second match against Argentina with a goal to nothing, and Shawky Gharib, coach of the team, seeks Olympic to erase the bad image and play offensively in the next meeting, especially as he knows very well that he has no way but to achieve the three points if he wants to rise to the next rounds and qualify for the round of 16.
