Olympics 2020 football teams


If football fans thought the summer was already packed out with top football action with the continuation of the UEFA 2020 European Championships and the Copa America 2021 competitions, then they would have been wrong.

Indeed, with the way last year went, plenty of the football had to be rescheduled and played this year, which has also meant that the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, has had to be rearranged.

Football is one of the Olympic sports that takes place and there are a number of countries that will be aiming to obtain the gold medal when they compete in Japan.

There are some huge nations also competing, therefore giving those that use bettingonlinesverige.se – one of the premium Swedish betting sites available to Swedish bettors – the opportunity to enhance their Olympic Games football watching experience immensely.

There are, also, some football nations that will be competing at the games this summer that have also competed at the major international tournaments that are currently taking place around the world at the moment, as well.

Germany and Spain are just two examples, with both having been involved in the UEFA 2020 European Championships, whilst Brazil and Argentina are involved in both as they continue to compete in the Copa America 2021 competition.

Here is a run-down of the teams that are all taking part in the Olympic Games later this month, as per GOAL, who have detailed the squads to have been named:

France, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, Honduras, New Zealand, Romania, South Korea, Argentina, Australia, Egypt, Spain, Brazil, Germany, Ivory Coast, Saudi Arabia.

Of course, there are a number of rules to have been put in place, such as only three players over the age of 23 being allowed, thus to keep the competition a little fairer and keep the ‘amateur’ values that the Olympic Games typically follows to remain.

However, with the summer of football having been hectic because of the competitions being played, there will be a number of clubs that may want to keep their players from turning out, with the games also running close to the start of another long season.

That might be a three-way problem between club, player and country, and one that could be potentially messy if two desired outcomes appear, such as the player and the nation wanting to compete but their club do not.

Nonetheless, football fans will still be pleased that once the 2020 UEFA European Championships and the Copa America 2021 competitions come to an end, they will not have to wait to start watching the Olympic Games and carry on their summer of football!
