FIFA says the Arena da Amazonia in Manaus is too remote for the Olympics.

SAO PAULO -- FIFA says it opposes the choice of Manaus as a football host city in the 2016 Olympics.

Brazil will select Neymar as one of Brazil's three over-age players for the 2016 Olympics, manager Alexandre Gallo said on Thursday.

Olympic teams are made up of under-23 players with the addition of up to three older players.
