<p>Brazil’s chances of capturing a third consecutive men’s Olympic football championship were dashed on Sunday when they were eliminated from qualifying for the Paris Games by Argentina 1-0.</p>

<p>On the last day of the South American pre-Olympic competition in Venezuela, Brazil, the reigning champions of Rio 2016 and the Tokyo Games postponed due to the Covid pandemic, needed just a draw against their fiercest regional rivals.</p>
<p>But with to Luciano Gondou’s goal in the second half in Caracas, Argentina is the team that is heading to France in search of a third championship, having won two in 2004 and 2008.</p>
<p>Defeating Venezuela 2-0, Paraguay secured the other South American ticket to Paris 2024.</p>
<p>Carlos Jara Saguier’s Paraguay beat Argentina in the qualifying competition, winning the gold medal thanks to goals from Marcelo Perez in the 75th minute and midfielder Diego Gomez with a penalty in the 48th.</p>
<p>Unlike the Olympics, when teams are permitted to use three overage reinforcements, the qualifying competition was limited to players who were under the age of 23.</p>
<p>And now Argentina will be calling to attempt to convince one very unique player—36-year-old Lionel Messi—who was a standout in the team’s 2008 Olympic gold run, to go to Paris with them.</p>
<p>“Everyone is aware of my friendship with Leo… and we welcome him back to the team,” said coach Javier Mascherano, who was Messi’s longtime Argentina teammate.</p>
