Please don't tell me you take this shit serious.

Olympic Men's football is ridiculous and useless. And to whoever disagrees, just remember that someone completely irrelevant in world football like Serge Gnabry is currently the big star of the tournament miles ahead of Neymar.

It's not irrelevant to the players playing there. It may not be a World Cup or Euro or Copa but it's still a notable achievement.

Well, every local tournament is relevant for the players playing in it. Doesn't justify much attention though from others.

Unless it's full pro teams in the Olympics (and FIFA probably will not allow that to happen) it doesn't say much about the winners and losers.

Portugal lose to Germany and Tiger will have to suffer a bit more with Germany playing for an Useless Olympic Medal.

Not really. I would take the gold for the medal table but don't care about the football.

It has the same value to me in terms of football as our shooting gold medals.

dont take it as seriously as the euro or the world cup,or even the U21 or U20 tournaments,but nonetheless, some very good players have come out of it


for me olympics is basically atletics and gymnastics,lil more than that,think way too many sports are there,but since we are,i wish my team the best of coz

its a bit sad that our coach found himself with a 3rd choice team at hand,but he did a great job with them,shame we had to meet germany in the quarters, saw most of the game and it's a very good team

physically looked like a youth team vs a veterans one but really,germayn is presenting itself with a team that plays very well,and even though the score was very heavy, they deserved the win and weere clearly the best on the pitch....wouldnt be surprised if u get the gold here

unlike in the euro,we were unlucky to top the group this time

I think I explained it quite well. The medal counts, the football doesn't. I care for this FOOTBALL tournament as much as for Confed Cup or Club World Cup: Useless and not worth called a football trophy.

But the medal counts in the table. And can't hear the anthem often enough of course.

We understand, the tournament is not worth enough, except worth as a Bolt victory on 100 meters. We got you.
