This match was once expected to be a major showcase of this tournament when Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi were possibilities to play in the Olympics. But both players opted out of competing in this tournament, representing their nations in the Euro 2016 and Copa America instead. Messi of course lost in the final of the Copa while Ronaldo lifted the Euro title a few weeks later.
