Brazil has won at least one medal at each of the past three Olympic meetings. Andre Jardine’s squad will hope to make it big and win the tournament. With Diego Carlos leading the defence with Dani Alves, Douglas Luiz and Bruno Guimaraes in midfield with a front-three of Richarlison, Antony and Matheus Cunha Jardine’s squad looks strong and have the potential to put up a show.
