2020, an Olympic year

  • Competitions: Men’s and Women’s Olympic Football Tournaments Tokyo 2020
  • Dates: 23 July-8 August (Men’s); 22 July-7 August (Women’s)
  • Brazil’s men brought an end to their long-running Olympic curse by winning gold on home soil in 2016. A Seleçao特级做人爱c级日本 will now look to defend their title in Japan, something only four nations have achieved in the tournament’s history: Great Britain in 1908 and 1912, Uruguay in 1924 and 1928, Hungary in 1964 and 1968, and Argentina in 2004 and 2008.

    As for the women’s competition, there will be no back-to back gold medals for Germany. The FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™ doubled up as Europe's qualifying tournament for Tokyo 2020, with Great Britain, the Netherlands and Sweden taking the three berths on offer and the Germans missing out. Should they negotiate the Concacaf qualifiers safely, USA will start as one of the favourites for the title, given that they have won four of the six Women’s Olympic Football tournaments held to date, not to mention the last two Women's World Cups. Pia Sundhage’s Brazil, hosts Japan and the three European contenders also have the credentials to win gold.
