Men's Olympic soccer standings 2021: Updated tables, scores, results from football tournament

Sporting News logo Sporting News 2 days ago Simon Borg

Sixteen nations are vying for Olympic soccer gold at the 2021 Tokyo Games. The usual European and South American heavyweights — Spain, France, Germany, Brazil and Argentina — were the pre-tournament favorites, but a couple of them are in early trouble.

The Men’s Football Tournament kicks off with a round-robin group stage in which each team plays three matches against the others in the group (July 22, July 25 and July 28). Teams collect three points for a win, one for a draw and none for a loss. The top two finishers in each group advance to the quarterfinals, with the pairings determined in advance based on group finish.
