Team News: Mohamed Salah Starts for Egypt


Mohamed Salah will start for Egypt in their Olympic quarter-final match against Japan as he looks to add to his three goals in the tournament so far. 

Salah's tally puts him as the joint second highest scorer of the Olympics, while strike partner Aboutrika, who is just one behind on two goals, also starts. 
Meanwhile, Japan, who have found goals somewhat hard to come by so far, start with lively striker Yuki Otsu partnering Kensuke Nagai up front, both of whom have netted one apiece in their three games. 
Egypt: Elshenawi; Hegazi, Ahmed Fathi, Ramadan, Saad; S Ahmed, Hossan Hassam, El Neny; Aboutrika, Emad Meteab, Salah 
Japan: Gonda; Tokunaga, Sakai, Yoshida, Suzuki; Ohgihara, Higashi, Yamaguchi, Kiyotake; Nagai, Otsu
