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

In defenders i dont say nothing, probably the worst part of all, Correa is not bad and i have a good memory of Simeone in the U 20 but you are rigth that we dont have a good nine in the team.

When you thought it was all solved....

 

Sampdoria sold Joaquin Correa to Sevilla and his new club denies release :lol: also Vietto was denied in last days, but good news is that Sao Paulo is close to exit the Libertadores so they will release Jonathan Calleri in time for olympics (and he's better than Vietto).

 

Today was the first training of the team... with only 11 players (but this was expected).

It is really good news :p

 

These last minute casualties are really complicated. Brazil will no longer have Douglas Costa and is likely to miss Fred too.

Some of us still hope they can turn it around!

This is another Fred, not the one from the World Cup.

It seems like almost all teams are in the same tough situation. Sweden has been mentioning trying to get an exemption for them to pick players not in the original squad, because they've gotten lots of nos.

Denmark seems to be doing decently with a deal meaning that all danish teams not playing in Europe are forced to let 2 players go, with one exemption selected by the team and the first goalie.

At the moment we're at 8 players.

Good news everyone! Portugal olympic team has officially a squad! :POR

 

And thats it, that's the only thing good on those news.

Why? Because, due to the unavailability of the teams to allow their players to go to the Olympics (and because some of them are tired from the Euro 2016 they won just days ago), from the initial 35 players that our manager picked to the pre-Olympic squad, only 11 were available!!! :wall: (including all the best players we had)

 

But wait, there's more! This is such a ridiculous situation that our squad of 18 players has... 17 players!! :facepalm:Because 18 minutes (!!!!) before the official squad presentation, one of the 18 players was declined by his team to be in Rio! :thumbdown:

 

Here is the team anyway:
GK: Bruno Varela e Joel Pereira;

DF: Edgar Ié, Ricardo Esgaio, Tiago Ilori and Tobias Figueiredo;

MF: André Martins, Bruno Fernandes, Sturgeon, Francisco Ramos, Sérgio Oliveira, Tiago Silva and Tomás Podstawski;

FW: Carlos Mané, Gonçalo Paciência, Nuno Santos and Salvador Agra
