What is the team news?

After their Copa America heroics, the vast majority of Argentina's big stars are not heading to the Olympics.

That includes Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria and Sergio Aguero who are all resting up following the win over Brazil.

As such, goalkeeper Jeremias Ledesma is the only player over the age of 23 in a youthful squad.

Australia are competing in their first Olympic football since 2008 and twelve of their selected players currently ply their trade in the A-League.

Look out for 22-year-old Daniel Arzani, with the Man City hoping to impress after four loans moves since 2018.
