Paris Olympics football draw unveiled: Hosts France the biggest winner

Thierry Henry and his France team received a favorable draw for the men’s football tournament at the 2024 Olympic Games, landing in Group A alongside New Zealand, USA, and the winners of a playoff between Guinea and an Asian team. Henry, reminiscing about the Olympics, expressed the team’s determination to perform well. With promising talents like Eduardo Camavinga, Warren Zaire-Emery, and Bradley Barcola, France aims to secure the top spot in the group to avoid a potential clash with Argentina in Group B. Brazil, the two-time defending champions, failed to qualify. Spain leads Group C, while Group D includes Paraguay, Israel, Mali, and the first Asian qualifier.

In the women’s competition, France faces Canada, Colombia, and New Zealand in Group A, while the USA contends with Germany, Australia, and either Morocco or Zambia in Group B. Spain makes its Olympic debut in Group C alongside Japan, Brazil, and an African qualifier. The football tournament begins before the opening ceremony on July 24th, with the women’s final concluding the event on August 10th, marking the first time the women’s final serves as the culmination of the football event.
