So Germany's women will definitely be in a group with Australia since France and Sweden are in our confederation? And the men will have either South Africa or Fiji in their group, since it can't be Portugal or Sweden? Or did I misunderstand this?

 

The only certainty I have is to be a messy draw :p

 

But your logic seems right.

That's not possible, if they want to keep the teams from the same confederations apart. ;) Because Fiji and Algeria won't be in the same group. Fiji is either with Denmark or Germany in the group, and South Africa is with the other one of Germany and Denmark in a group.

i think :ALG have no chance , this team is not stable many players will not participate because of the rule of "age under 23"

But that's the rule for every country :d

in u-23 almost everything is possible, even medal for Honduras, the only chanceless team is Fiji, Iraq was once close, Japan and Korea were amazing last time, Africa is always dangerous

Our womens team will have to play against Australia, our mens team will have to play against Fidji or South Africa. The pots are determined by the olympic results in the last 20 years, so our mens team is in pot 4 because 1988 was the last time that we participated at the olympic games.

There is a 2/3 probability that our womens team will have a very difficult group. Australia + China/Canada would be a very tough group. On the mens side our group doesnt really matter, we will win the gold medal anyway if we play with our best team and have a decent preparation.

Our women won't be in a group with China. Since Australia is in our group, China won't be, because Australia is playing for the Asian federation. So it's either Canada or New Zealand from that pot.

:d 

 

Even if Germany plays with their best team and a good preparation, other nations like Brazil can play with their best team and a good preparation as well and have a very decent chance as well :d

The men's pot allocation are very bizarre :wacko:  and with the rule "no group has more than one team from the same confederation" was more easy put all Europeans in the same pot...... Also the criteria "last 5 OG results" and "bonus for continental champions" don't like.

Nigeria (gold 1996, silver 2008) and Korea (bronze 2012) deserved more than Japan the pot 1 ;)

 

The pot allocation for the Women's tournament have more sense.

Good, so we only have a 50% chance of getting a very difficult group.

We have clearly the best team, if we play with our best team. Brazil and Argentina dont even come close concerning individual quality and we dont even need to use a single player who is not U23.

What would be your "best team"? Last year Germany U-21 was defeated 5-0 by Portugual in Euro.

 

I truly believe that Germany will be a strong team, but I can not see the superiority that you said.
