One of the main attractions for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil will be the men’s soccer tournament. This year’s tournament features a number of exciting teams including host nation Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Portugal, Germany and 2012 gold medalists Mexico.

Matches will be played in Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Brasília, Salvador,São Paulo and Manaus, all host cities from the World Cup.
