Players to Watch at the 2016 Men’s Olympic Football Tournament.
Written in 2016 by Hud Mellencamp.
For the upcoming Olympic games hosted in Rio, I have comprised a list of player to watch, one from each team. Since the institution of the under 23 rule, there is less known about many of these players. It is my goal to tell you who these players are, and why I expect them to have a strong presence at the 2016 Olympic games.
North, Central America and Caribbean
Unfortunately the 2016 Olympic rosters have not yet been released. Due to the conflicting time of the Copa America as well as the regular season some of these players may not end up going to the games. Furthermore, because the Olympics fall outside of the FIFA season, clubs do not have to release players to allow them to play in the Olympic games.
