France’s Olympic Football Team 

A French Football Federation (FFF) member of staff has confirmed the organization is looking to confirm the nation’s best men’s football players for the tournament at the Paris Olympic 2024 Games, after failing to gain the release of its stars for the Tokyo 2020 Games.

At Tokyo 2020, France missed several of their best under-23 players – including young striker Kylian Mbappé and relied on three overage players who were not regulars in the senior national team. It led to Sylvain Ripoll’s squad being eliminated in the group stage with just one win from three. A source from the FFF, according to L’Equipe, says the organization will make a plea to the professional clubs.

The Olympics, in our own country – it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, they said.

At the least, club hierarchies should listen to reason.

Clubs are not obliged to release their players for the Games as the tournament falls outside the international window. FIFA World Cup winner Kylian Mbappé could be chosen for the Paris 2024 Olympics squad if clubs allow the release of players For Paris 2024, Mbappé could be selected as one of those over-age players if an agreement is sealedVeteran Karim Benzema is also said to be interested in playing at the tournament.

Founded in 1904, the team has won two FIFA World Cups, two UEFA European Championships, two FIFA Confederations Cups, one Olympic Games, one CONMEBOL–UEFA Cup of Champions, and one UEFA Nations League title. France was one of the four European teams that participated in the first World Cup in 1930.

Twenty-eight years later, the team, led by Raymond Kopa and Just Fontaine, finished in third place at the 1958 World Cup. France experienced much of its success in three different eras: in the 1980s, from the 1990s to the early 2000s, and during the late 2010s. In 1984, under the leadership of the three-time Ballon d’Or winner Michel Platini, France won Euro 1984 (its first official title), a CONMEBOL–UEFA Cup (1985), and reached two World Cup semi-finals in 1982 and 1986.

Three years later, France competed in the 2006 World Cup, where they were defeated by Italy on penalties, 5-3. Ten years later, they competed in the Euro 2016 final, when they were defeated by Portugal 1-0 after extra time. France won the 2018 World Cup, its second triumph in that event, two years later.

As host in 1994, the U.S. received an automatic berth and lost to Brazil in the round of sixteen.

The U.S. reached the quarter-finals in 2002 and controversially lost to Germany. In the 2009 Confederations Cup, the Americans eliminated top-ranked Spain in the semi-finals before losing to Brazil in the final, the team’s only appearance in the final of a major intercontinental tournament.

Except for three players who are overage, the selection is only open to athletes under the age of 23. The Brazilian Football Confederation CBF oversees the group.

Colombia’s Olympic football Team

The national football team of Colombia the Colombian Football Federation, the country’s football regulating body, oversees Selection de football de Colombia, which represents Colombia in men’s international football. They are a CONMEBOL member and presently hold the 17th spot in the FIFA World Rankings. Los Cafeteros is the team’s nickname since their nation produces a lot of coffee. Notably, for many Colombians around the world, the national team has served as a representation of nationality, pride, and devotion. Colombia is recognized for having ardent supporters, and the team’s celebration dances after goals have been significant.

Colombian Participated

The Colombian team has participated in six World Cups in 1962, 1990, 1994, 1998, 2014, and 2018. In the 2014 edition held in Brazil, the team achieved its best World Cup performance, reaching the quarter-finals and coming fifth in the final standings. Its greatest international achievement is winning the Copa American in 2001 as hosts, also setting a new record with no goals conceded and every match won; it has also finished runner-up in 1975 and finished third five times: in 1987, 1993, 1995, 2016, and 2021. Furthermore, the team managed to make outstanding appearances at the continental level, obtaining from the Central American and Caribbean Games the gold and bronze medals in 1946 and 1938 respectively, and in the Bolivarian Games the team obtained the gold medal in 1951 and the silver medal in 1961, 1973 and 1981.

1990s Decades

The 1990s were Colombia’s most prosperous decade. A unique “mutual respect” rivalry between the two countries was started in a 1993 encounter that ended in a 5-0 victory over Argentina. Rene Hiuita, a goalkeeper, rose to renown in 1995 at Wembley Stadium with his unorthodox scorpion kick clearance against England. Carlos Valderrama, who excelled in League 1, Freddy Rincon, who played in Serie A, La Liga, and the Brazilian Championship, and Faustino Asprilla were stars from Colombia’s side who shone in major European divisions.

Colombia qualified for the World Cups in 1990, 1994, and 1998 during this time period, however, they only advanced past the second round in 1990. Following the murder of Andrés Escobar after the 1994 World Cup, Colombia’s performances faded in the latter half of the 1990s and early half of the 2000s, and although Colombia was the champion of the 2001 Copa America, which they hosted, the nation missed three World Cups between 2002 and 2010. Colombia was the first team to win FIFA’s best mover in 1993 when the achievement was first introduced and the second team after Croatia to win it twice in 2012.

José Peterman

With the arrival of Argentine manager José Peterman in January 2012, Colombia entered a new era. Colombia improved over the 2011 Copa America during the 2014 World Cup qualifying matches, moving up from 40th to the top ten for the first time since 2002 and into the top five continuously for the first time since 2004. Colombia returned to the World Cup in 2014 after a 16-year absence, and they were able to reach the quarterfinals, which is the farthest they had ever advanced in a World Cup. James Rodrguez, a great midfielder for Colombia, won the Golden Boot for the tournament’s most goals with six and the Best Goal of the Tournament award for his long-range goal against Uruguay.
