The selection is already in Sapporo

The expedition made up of the 22 players and the 12 assistants (between technicians and other personnel) of the Spanish Olympic soccer team is already in Sapporo, their headquarters in the group stage of the tournament that kicks off this next week.

All of them traveled by charter flight from Kobe, where on Saturday they played the only friendly preparation against Japan (1-1), locked in that bubble with which they defend themselves from COVID.

As explained in the sefutbol portal, from the selection itself, all the expedition members found a orizuru, a swan made of gold paper as a symbol of good luck.
