There aren't any marquee matches, but some solid close clashes to kick off the men's football tournament at the 2012 Olympics.

The men's football tournament at the 2012 Olympics kicks off Thursday, and the scheduling gods have been kind. Unlike the women's tournament, which featured blocks of games and the two best games on at the exact same time on Wednesday, the best men's games are well spaced out. Brazil and Great Britain have some overlap, but the Brazil-Egypt game is unlikely to be one of the "best games." Expect Brazil to roll.

Honduras vs. Morocco and Mexico vs. South Korea should be the closest matches, and both feature teams fighting for potential knockout stage places right away. Expect Spain and Uruguay to win their matches comfortably.
