ZURICH: Reigning champions Brazil were on Wednesday drawn with 2016 runners-up Germany, the Ivory Coast and Saudi Arabia in the Tokyo Olympics men’s football group stages.

Hosts Japan, who last won a medal in the men’s event with a bronze in 1968, will play France, South Africa and Mexico in Group A.
