Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 11pm BST (Wednesday). The football matches of the Rio 2016 Olympics will be telecast live on BBC One, BBC Four and Red Button in the United Kingdom. In addition to this, there will be up to 24 HD video streams to follow the event on desktop, mobile and tablets.


Colombia face a must win game when they take on group leaders Nigeria on Wednesday after managing draws in their first two encounters against Sweden and Japan. The South Americans were expected to reach at least the semi-finals during pre-tournament predictions, but face a tough task against an in-form Nigeria.

The Los Cafeteros finished both their games with a 2-2 scoreline and must get a win to ensure qualification to the knockout phase of the event. A draw could see Japan and Sweden overtake them with a win in the match that takes place simultaneously.

Nigeria, on the other hand, are ensured of top spot in the group after recording back-to-back wins over Japan and Sweden. The African team were not expected to make it out of the group stages with Japan and Colombia expected to progress.

However, Samson Siasia's team have upset odds and made it to the quarterfinals despite landing in Rio just six hours before their first match against the Asian U23 champions. They won their first game 5-4 with Etebo scoring four goals, while Umar Sadiq got the winner against Sweden in their second match which they won 1-0.
