Brazil 3 -0 South Korea

Tokyo Olympics: Brazil held by Ivory Coast and Argentina have new hope. Luiz was initially booked, but the yellow card was upgraded to red by VAR, after he was deemed to deny a goalscoring opportunity.

Defending champions Brazil were held to a goalless draw by Ivory Coast in Group D, after Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz was sent off for a trip on former Leeds winger Max Gradel on just 13 minutes.

Ivory Coast, who won their opener against Saudi Arabia, also had a player dismissed late on as Eboue Kouassi received a second yellow card.

Brazil, captained by former Barcelona defender Dani Alves, still top the group after thrashing Germany in their opening match.

Elsewhere, Facundo Medina gave Argentina their first win of the Games with a 1-0 victory over Egypt, while also in Group B, Mikel Oyarzabal‘s late strike saw Spain beat Australia to open their account.

Burnley striker Chris Wood was on target in New Zealand’s 3-2 loss to Honduras and, in the same group, South Korea thrashed Romania 4-0, leaving all the teams on three points after two matches.
