Sweden will take on Colombia in a Group B clash of the Rio 2016 Olympics men's football match at the Arena da Amazonia on Thursday, 4 August. It will be the first match for the two sides and also the first time they are competing in the Olympics since 1992.
This is only the second time that the Sweden national team are participating in the Olympics having crashed out of the quarter-final stage to Australia in 1992. Since then they have missed five years on the trot and will be looking to redeem themselves after an underwhelming European Championship campaign, where they could not qualify out of the group stages.
Colombia are in a similar situation as Sweden, having not made the Olympics in over two decades. They were eliminated from the group stages on each of the four occasions they played the Olympics and are desperately searching for their first knock-out show.
