The Olympics men's and women's football official draw was conducted at the headquarters of FIFA in Zurich today. 

The 28 teams that have qualified for the Olympic football tournaments discovered their group opponents. 


It's been gathered that Brazil and Germany, who faced off in the men's final at Rio 2016, were sent into a pool also comprising Côte d'Ivoire, Saudi Arabia, while Egypt, Spain, Argentina and Australia make up another intriguing group.

The draws were conducted by Jaime Yarza, FIFA Director of Tournaments, and Sarai Bareman, FIFA Chief Women's Football Officer. They were assisted by two FIFA Legends: Lindsay Tarpley, member of the USA women's national team and two-time Olympic gold medallist (Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008), and Ryan Nelsen, captain of the New Zealand Olympic squad in 2008 and London 2012.

Both the men’s and women’s Olympic Football Tournaments will be played in a group stage, followed by quarter-finals, semi-finals and bronze medal and gold medal matches.
