USA vs. Colombia 2016 live stream: How to watch U-23 MNT's Olympic qualifier online

The USMNT didn't make the 2012 Olympics. Can they make Rio 2016?

Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

Right after the senior United States men's national team plays to stay in World Cup contention on Tuesday, the Under-23s play a make-or-break Olympic qualifier against Colombia. Only one of them can make it to the Summer Olympics.

The USMNT wasn't expected to make the Olympics after losing their qualifying match against Honduras last fall, but they're in good position in their intercontinental playoff on Friday. They drew 1-1 in Colombia, meaning they'll progress to Rio with a win by any margin. They'll also go through if they draw 0-0, and go to extra time if Tuesday's game ends 0-0.

Senior United States squad regular Jordan Morris is in this team, along with top prospects like Matt Miazga and Emerson Hyndman. Colombia's squad is mostly made up of domestic-based players, with Rennes' Juan Fernando Quintero the most recognizable name.
