Brazil has barely got over its World Cup disaster and now it is counting on Barcelona star Neymar to finally deliver a treasured first football Olympic gold medal.Olympic gold is the only international title to elude Brazil in an illustrious history that has seen A Selecao win five World Cups.Neymar was part of the Brazil side shocked by Mexico in the final of the 2012 Olympics, whilst even the likes of Ronaldo and Ronaldinho have come up short when charged with delivering gold.However, Brazil are strong favorites to end their wait as on top of home advantage, they also possess by far the strongest squad on paper.Each team is restricted to just three players over the age of 23 in their 18-man squads.
