The Men’s Olympic Soccer tournament has delivered drama, goals and shocks galore as Brazil beat Spain to win the Gold medal and Mexico grabbed Bronze.

[ LIVE: Watch Brazil – Spain in Gold medal game ]

After being postponed due to COVID, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will take place in Tokyo, Japan, Friday, July 23 – Sunday, August 8, 2021.

The USMNT failed to make the Olympics again, opening the door for Honduras to join Mexico from the CONCACAF region for the 2020 games in Tokyo.

What a tournament it was with some Premier League stars lighting it up in Japan, plus plenty of emerging stars also putting on a show with some shock results.
