Just five of the World Cup 2014 stadiums will be use for the forthcoming football tournemant at the Olympics in two years time.
Rio De Janeiro, along with Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Salvador and San Paulo will host the mens competition which starts on August 4th 2016 with the Final taking place on August 19th.
The only international tournament that Brazil have not won is an Olympic Gold so they will be desperate especially after the debacle of the 2014 World Cup in their own back yard.
Brazil have had two silver medals and three bronze so Canarinho (Little Canary) A Seleção (The Selection) Verde-Amarela (The Green and Yellow) or the Pentacampeões (The Five Time Champions) would just love to heal the wounds of this summer with a victory on home soil with an Olympic goal.
