Are you longing for the European leagues to start? The Olympic soccer in London can work as an appetizer.
Since the Olympics in Barcelona 1992, only 3 players over 23 is allowed in the Olympic football.
The status of the tournament has gradually increased in the later years.
In Athens, stars such as Carlos Tévez, Javier Saviola and Cristiano Ronaldo raised the level . Four years ago the tournament stepped up another level with Argentina, having a team with Leo Messi, Javier Mascherano, Ángel Di María and Juan Roman Riquelme.
This year Spain comes to the tournament with players like Javi Martínez, Juan Mata and Jordi Alba. Brazil is not to shabby either with Milan star Thiago Silva, Real Madrid’s Marcelo and the wonder-kid Neymar.
