The top two of the group move on to the next round.

Squads will be allowed to add three players over the age of 23 to their squads.

Although Mexican manager Luis Fernando Tena has yet to confirm if he will add the three over 23 year old players permitted, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said that Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez(24 at the time of the Olympics) will miss United’s preseason because of the Olympics.

  1. I wonder who the other two players are that Tena is going to take to the olympic. I know people being talking about Moreno. In my opinion Tena should take Corono or Ochoa.
