Two Real Madrid and Barcelona players were forced to leave the field due to injuries.
Olympic team suffered two injuries in their first half of the their first game in the competition.
La Roja played Egypt in their first match at the 2020 Olympics, and conditions have not been good for Luis de la Fonte's side. In the first 20 minutes, Oscar Mingueza left the field due to injury and was replaced by Jesus Vallejo. But in the continuation of the game and before reaching the 45th minute, Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos was also forced to leave the field due to injury.
Ceballos gave his place to Jon Moncayola after a fierce confrontation with Taher Mohamed, while the game was going on with a score of 0-0. Jon Moncayola had a good performance on the pitch and hit a ball into the post of the Egyptian goal, he had a hard clash with Taher and the referee decided to give the Egyptian a yellow card after reviewing the scene with VAR.
This injury will certainly be very bad news for Spain and Real Madrid, and it remains to be seen how long Ceballos will not be able to be on the pitch.
La Roja will face Argentina and Australia in their next group stage matches.
