LOL - we'll see! My country (Canada) is certain to NOT be in the final so whoever is the underdog will be getting my cheers!

When it comes to professional football i agree, have you looked at what the criteria for selection to an Olympic squad is though. A lot of the S. American players that are eligible under those rules are playing top flight Argentinian and Brazilian football.

Where I really wanted to be was on vacation in Jamaica, in a bar, drinking something tropical and watching the Jamaicans win all the track and field events again!! That would have been insanely exciting I think!!!

I think Spain has the best prospective roster for the Games this year. Brazil's young stars are exciting, but tactically Spain has the strongest roster.
