Preparation

The Brazilian men’s team, coached by Andre Jardin, is already negotiating with the main clubs in Europe for the release of athletes working on the continent. The men’s soccer tournament is restricted to players under the age of 23 (in Tokyo, the age limit will be 24 due to the Games postponement). However, the rule allows for each selection to summon three athletes over the age of 24. After the group stage, the best players in each group advance to the quarter-finals, with competition continuing in knockout form until decision.

The Brazilian Technical Committee is working with the possibility of calling up a goalkeeper among these players over the age of 24. Wiverton, from Palmeiras, is among those citations. He was champion at Rio 2016, when he was 509 minutes without conceding a goal, a record in the men’s Olympic football tournament. Wiverton was not leaked against South Africa, Iraq, Denmark, Colombia and Honduras, until he suffered in the final against Germany, in the Maracana.

The Olympic team played 20 games during its preparation period, achieving 14 wins, three draws and three defeats. 48 goals were scored and 17 goals were conceded. The striker was the striker Matthews Cunha, who scored 16 goals. Behind him stand Anthony and Paulinho, with six each.

In these matches, coach Andre Jardin was able to witness 68 different athletes and win the Maurice Revillo Tournament (former Toulon Championship), as well as secure his place in Tokyo in the Olympic Games in early 2020.

Among the women, Germany, the current champion, did not qualify for the Tokyo Games. Thus, the favoritism with the United States. Brazil has trained since 2019 at the hands of Swedish Pia Sundhag (twice Olympic champion with the United States) led by Marta, and is seeking an unprecedented Olympic gold. After the group stage, the best players in each category and the two best teams in third place advance to the quarter-finals.

Brazil is one of the most traditional teams in the Olympic women’s soccer tournament, with the brands played by Christian and Formega. With 14 goals, the striker is considered the greatest goalscorer among men and women in soccer at the Olympic Games. Indeed, the defending midfielder, who has competed in all Olympic women’s soccer competitions so far, may reach her seventh Olympiad if she is called up by Swedish coach Pia Sundhag, who incidentally has a separate chapter in the history of the Olympiad games. I participated in all 6 editions as a player, coach or part of the coaching staff.
