Brazil cannot compete in the upcoming Olympics.
Brazil’s U-23 under 23 national team lost 0-1 to Argentina in the final third leg of the final round of the South American regional qualifying round for men’s football at the 2024 Paris Olympics in Caracas, Venezuela, at 5:30 a.m. on the 12th. As a result, Brazil failed to go to Paris with one win and two losses three points in the final round, falling behind Paraguay 7 points and Argentina 5 points.
The tightening trend was broken at the end of the second half. Argentina’s Luciano Franchi scored the winning goal in the 32nd minute of the second half to overwhelm Brazil.
Brazil tried to hunt for its third consecutive gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics and 2020 Tokyo Olympics, but failed to advance to the Olympics. Brazil also won bronze and silver medals at the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics, respectively.
Korea is also in a position of uncertainty. The Korean U-23 national soccer team, led by coach Hwang Sun-hong, is set to play the final Asian qualifying round for the 2024 Paris Olympics and the U-23 Asian Cup, which will take place in Qatar in April this year.
There are 3.5 tickets allocated to Asia in the 2024 Paris Olympic soccer event, which will involve a total of 16 teams. The teams that win the upcoming 2024 AFC U-23 Asian Cup, the runner-up and the third-place team will go straight to the Olympic finals, and the fourth-place team will determine the winner of the final ticket through a playoff against Guinea, the fourth-place team in the 2023 Africa U-23 Nations Cup Morocco.
Korea is in Group B, and is grouped with Japan, the UAE and China. It is evaluated as a group of death. First of all, as the three East Asian countries are grouped together, fierce competition is expected. Korea is the world’s first country to enter the Olympics for the ninth consecutive time, and will seek to become the world’s first country to enter the Olympics for the 10th consecutive time.
“We don’t have much time until the final qualifying round in April. This training is very important. We will exert our utmost effort to become competitive. With good results, we will lay the groundwork for our team to pass the final qualifying round,” Hwang said in an interview before his departure. 스포츠토토
