Caracas (Venezuela). Brazil missed out on qualifying for the 2024 Paris Olympics after losing 1-0 to Argentina in their South American qualifier.
Brazil, who were bidding for a third consecutive Olympic men’s football title, will miss the Olympic men’s tournament for the first time since 2004.
Argentina won 1-0 with Luciano’s goal in the 78th minute of the South American qualifier match on Sunday.
After losing their opening match to Paraguay in the four-team group, then beating Venezuela 2–1, Brazil needed a win or draw against Argentina in the last stage of qualifying to qualify for the Olympics. However, the team was not successful in this.
