🥇 Which legendary Argentine is the most prolific player at the Olympics since 1992?

Since 1992 only U23 players and a trio of overaged players are allowed to participate in the men's tournament.

The likes of Serge Gnabry, Andrzej Juskowiak, and Neymar have featured strongly at past editions of the Olympics, but their exploits have all been overshadowed by one legendary Argentine. Neymar has played twice at the Olympics for Brazil. In 2012 he scored three times as a 19-year-old as the Selecao collected silver.

Four years later, when Brazil went one better to claim gold, Neymar scored four times to take his overall Olympics tally to seven goals. Polish striker Juskowiak needed just one tournament and six games to equal Ney's tally.

In 2004 Carlos Tevez shone for Argentina with eight goals in six games — the most of any player since the introduction of the over 23 rule at the Olympics in 1992, guiding his side to gold.
