Let's do a catch-all thread for all Olympics matches--men and women. Any controversial incidents or games can spawn off into other threads, but the appointments and most of the standard comments and analysis can go here. Reminder of the referees there: MEN IRMATOV (UZB) NISHIMURA (JPN) WILLIAMS (AUS) GASSAMA (GAM) JEDIDI (TUN) GARCIA (MEX) GEIGER (USA) OROSCO (BOL) ROLDAN (COL) SOTO (VEN) O'LEARY (NZL) BRYCH (GER) CLATTENBURG (ENG) KRALOVEC (CZE) MOEN (NOR) ROCCHI (ITA) WOMEN NEGUEL (CMR) HONG (KOR) YAMAGISHI (JPN) HEIKKINEN (FIN) MITSI (GRE) PALMQVIST (SWE) PEDERSEN (NOR) STEINHAUS (GER) ALVARADO (MEX) CHENARD (CAN) SEITZ (USA) DI IORIO (ARG) There are six women's matches on the first day, so there's really not the traditional "opener" that there is at other tournaments, though "Match #1," the Great Britain v New Zealand encounter, does kickoff one hour earlier than the rest. With the US not in that group, and a non-UEFA referee needed, it does look like a nice match for Seitz. Men are similar, with 8 eight matches at staggered kickoff times. The Great Britain men's match against Senegal is held until local primetime, though, so technically the first kickoff is Honduras v Morocco. Assignments should be public sometime tomorrow for the women and then Tuesday for the men.
