The Final Set of Group D Matches

Very, very quick post on this to round up Group D of the Olympic football tournament. Having enjoyed the first 4 games of the group in person, work got in the way of of seeing the final two matches between Spain and Morocco, and Japan and Honduras.

Both matches finished 0-0, with Spain suffering the ignominy (as France did in the 2002 World Cup) of going out of the Olympics without scoring a single goal. Japan go through as group winners to play Egypt at Old Trafford on Saturday, while Brazil will entertain Honduras in Newcastle later in the afternoon. I think a return trip to St James’ may be in order…
