GIANTS WILL FALL
A hard fought Olympic men’s football tournament is into its final round of group stage fixtures and not one team has booked its place in the quarter-final.
Only one team, Japan, have won both their opening matches, but they could still go out if they are beaten 2-0 by France and Mexico beat South Africa.
Along with the French, a number of other giants are in danger of bowing out of the group stage.
One of Argentina or Spain is almost certain to be on the next plane home as they face each other in their final match.
The Argentines must win while Spain need a draw to go through.
Germany will also go home early if they are unable to beat a strong Ivory Coast side while Brazil appear likely to go through but could still bow out if they suffer a heavy defeat to Saudi Arabia.
