Spanish national team player Dani Ceballos sustained a severe injury during his match against his Egyptian counterpart (0-0) today, Thursday, at the start of their career in the football competition within the framework of the activities of the Tokyo Olympics 2020.
The Egyptian striker, Taher Mohamed Taher, ran over Ceballos’ foot, during a strong friction between them, at the 41st minute, which led to the Spanish player’s ankle sprain, which left the field and could end his career in Tokyo.
The video technology intervened and summoned the Jordanian international referee, Adham Makhadmeh, to review the situation and the possibility of announcing a red card for Taher Muhammad Taher for the pretext of trampling the ankle of Ceballos, but the referee only issued the yellow card.
And the coach of the Spanish national team, de la Fuente, had to put John Moncaiola in the last minute of the first half, instead of the injured Ceballos.
Taher Mohamed Taher had injured Spanish player Oscar Mingueza in the 22nd minute of the first half as well.
The Egyptian striker intervened strongly on Barcelona defender Oscar Mingueza, to leave the latter affected by the injury, and Real Madrid defender Vallejo entered in his place.
