    Should keep Olympics clean from big stars in football and even if you win, nobody cares, see Messi winning in Beijing.

    If he was U-23 I would've said OK, but he's in the 3 non Under list anyway they will choose someone else, I would add restrictions such as max 10 games for the senior team for those who are over aged.

    It's a Junior tournament after all, should leave the kids to play, people are more interested in other things at Olympics, many are once every 4 year attractions, most sports supreme international title is the Olympic Gold Medal such as Basketball, Handball or Water Polo >>> the World Cup, football at the Olympics was always less important, even before the 1930 World Cup there mainly amateurs playing.

    I think it's a blessing in disguise, which means both Gabigoal & Gabriel Jesus will play alongside with Neymar.

    Brazil won't play in Belo Horizonte unless they will be involved in the Bronze Medal Match

    Fernando Prass is one of the 3 players over 23, why? A 38 year old goalkeeper.

    Second one is obviously Neymar but they could've done better, right?

    Prass is there for leadership, he having a good season so far as well. Brazil initially wasn't going to used an overage spot on a keeper but Benfica didn't release Ederson.

    It looks like Renato Augusto will take the third overage spot.

    Augusto is one of the grown players. Makes sense. I forgot Anderson is Felipe Anserson from Lazio.

    Great squad.

    Thiago Maia also apparently impressed more than Rafa. Hope he gets some minutes today.
