Meet the opponents of the men's and women's soccer teams at the Tokyo Olympics

This Wednesday, 21, FIFA held the draw of the keys to the football tournament at the Tokyo Olympics. All 16 male and 12 female teams will participate in the competition. Matches will be played from July 21 to August 7 in six cities Tokyo, Sapporo, Saitama, Miyagi, Yokohama and Ibaraki.

Current Olympic champion, Men’s brazil team Group D opens and will face Germany, Côte d’Ivoire and Saudi Arabia in the first round of the Games. The matches will be played at Yokohama International Stadium. Women’s team Stayed in Group F and will face China, Zambia and the Netherlands at Miyagi Stadium.

The Brazilian team, coached by Andre Jardin, is already in talks with the main clubs in Europe, which release athletes working on the continent. Men’s soccer competition is limited to under-23 players (the age limit will be 24 years due to the postponement of the Games in Tokyo). However, the rule allows each selection to call up to three athletes over the age of 24.

The Brazilian technical committee works with the possibility of calling a goalkeeper among these players over 24 years of age. The Waverton of Palmiras are among the quotations cited. He was the champion in Rio-2016 when he was on 509 minutes without a single goal, a record in the men’s Olympic football tournament. Waverton was not leaked against South Africa, Iraq, Denmark, Colombia and Honduras, until they reached the final against Germany in Maracana.

Defending champions Germany did not qualify for the Tokyo Games among women. Thus, partisanship is with the United States. Brazil is seeking unprecedented Olympic gold since 2019 under the leadership of Swedish Pia Sundage (two-time Olympic champion with the United States) and Marta.
