Men’s Olympic soccer quarterfinals: Complete schedule for all the knockout round matches
Now the fun really begins in the men’s Olympic soccer tournament. The knockout round bracket is set and every region in the world is represented.
Brazil will look to make it two gold medals in a row when it begins the knockout rounds against Egypt. Should it survive that quarterfinal, Brazil would meet South Korea or Mexico in the semis.
The other side of the bracket sees the winner of the Spain vs. Ivory Coast quarterfinal as a potential medal candidate. Spain earned the label of pre-tournament favorite and it features several players from the senior Euro semifinalist squad, while the African side has already proven its mettle in group-stage draws against Germany and Brazil. But they will likely have to face host Japan in the semis to reach a gold-medal game.

Beginning with the quarterfinals, if matches end in a tie after the 90 minutes of regulation, there will be 30 minutes of extra time that are played (two 15-minute periods). And if the deadlock is not resolved in extra time, a penalty-kick shootout will be used to determine the winner. The last gold medal match in 2016 between Brazil and Germany went to penalty kicks.
USA: TV coverage of select matches from both the men’s and women’s soccer tournaments will be carried by five channels from the NBC family of networks, in English and Spanish.
