It's pity this situations for Argentina :( (and AFA troubles don't help.....)

I don't think they will withdraw, but won't be one of "favourites".

 

The "bizarre" of the Olympic Men's Tournament is that are a "FIFA tournament" but clubs can denying their players :wacko: need a change for future, maybe U19 Men's tournament? (delete football isn't possible......)

Well, Olympics was created for the best athletes. I think that we need a radical change and FIFA must decide if they want stay in the Olympics whit the senior team or leave football from Olympic Games.

Agreed but no way the clubs will agree, not with the european championships the same year, world cup 2 years before, and you have the copa right around there as well, players will simply not have any breaks and thats the biggest issue.

 

they have to seriously restructure the whole calendar and have the olympics as the only tournament of that year, doubt that it will ever happen

but from the other hand if senior team players allowed then Olympic tournament might become antagonized to world cup and this FIFA want to avoid. And personally i agree

And we have a team:

 

GK: Geronimo Rulli (Real Sociedad/ESP), Axel Werner (Atlético Rafaela/ARG)

DF: Jose Luis Gomez (Lanus/ARG), Lautaro Gianetti (Velez/ARG), Leandro Vega (River/ARG), Lisandro Magallan (Boca Juniors/ARG), Alexis Soto (Banfield/ARG), Victor Cuesta (Independiente/ARG)

MF: Manuel Lanzini (West Ham/ENG), Lucas Romero (Cruzeiro/BRA), Santiago Ascacibar (Estudiantes/ARG), Mauricio Martínez (Rosario Central/ARG), Giovani Lo Celso (Rosario Central/ARG), Joaquin Correa (Sampdoria/ITA)

FW: Angel Correa (Atlético de Madrid/ESP), Luciano Vietto (Atlético de Madrid/ESP), Giovanni Simeone (River Plate/ARG), Cristian Espinoza (Huracán/ARG)

 

 

Pathetic team :lol: it has only 2 overage players (Rulli and Cuesta) because we couldn't even call a third. For instance we'll be missing our best three (!) U23 centre forwards no Dybala, Icardi or Calleri.

Combined with a shitty coach (he coached our women's team last years with disastrous results :d) this will result in a quick first round exit.

Amazing news, Argentina will go in Rio :clap: In 2004 Greece has a patethic team too but they win the Europan Champ :p Good luck, i'll cheer for the Argentina's dreamz but only in football :p

Who's gonna score the goals? Vietto? Gio? :lol: Also our best defender is Cuesta, that says it all (i'm Independiente fan).
