Below is a list of all Olympics 2016 Football broadcasters from across the world.


Japan and Colombia are coming off disappointing results in their opening group B encounters and will be keen to notch their first wins of the campaign. While the South Americans came away with a draw the Asian U23 champions suffered a shock 5-4 loss at the hands of 1996 gold medalists Nigeria.

The Blue Samurai were the more fancied team, but their defence could not contain Oghenekaro Etebo who scored four of the Super Eagles' five goals. Despite scoring four of their own during the game, manager Makoto Teguramori will be focused more on his defence when his team face Colombia on Sunday.

The South Americans, on the other hand, managed to get a point against Sweden, but will be keen to get all three points against Japan. The Colombians are expected to reach the latter stage of the competition owing to the quality of their squad, but will have to get a result against the Asian champions to keep their hopes of a quarter-final berth alive.

It is the first meeting between the two sides in the Olympics, but the senior sides came face-to-face at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, when Colombia ran away 4-1 winners.
