Rio 2016 Olympics football tournament draw took place on Thursday, with South Africa drawing hosts Brazil, Iraq and Denmark.

Reigning gold medal winners Mexico should have no trouble with Fiji and South Korea, but one slip up, combined with a game against Germany could complicate things, according to CBS Sports.

Brazil and Germany are the favourites entering the tournament, which is mainly played by U-23 players and three senior players.

The competition kicks off on August 3.
