The Mexican U-23 team is the reigning Olympic champion, having won the gold medal in London 2012, and they will look to get their title defense off to a good start against Germany on Thursday afternoon.
Mexico’s Olympic roster can be found here.
Germany won the bronze medal in 1988, but has never finished higher than that. The senior team, of course, is the reigning World Cup champion, but the Olympics are age-restricted.
The other teams in Group C, South Korea and Fiji, will face off after Mexico v Germany in this doubleheader at the Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova.
All times Eastern.
