The main question that revolves around those selected who participate in Such It is their return date, especially for clubs that have their players on loan and cannot count on them for the start of the season.
The exact date is not defined, because it completely depends on how far the ‘Tri’ goes in the Olympics, but as a maximum day, Mexico must stay in Japan until August 7, the day the final of the men’s Olympic tournament is played.
If Mexico does not advance to the group stage:
If Mexico fails to qualify for the quarterfinals, his last day will be this Wednesday, July 28, so they could even arrive for matchday 2 of Scream Mexico 2021, when América receives Necaxa, although it is very likely that they would not have activity due to the long journey and no preparation with the rest of the team.

If the Mexican team gets its ticket to the semifinals, the stay of the ‘Tri’ in Japan would practically extend until the end of the competition, because even if it is eliminated, would have the right to play a sixth match for the bronze medal on August 6, one day before the final.
Of course if Mexico advances to the game for the gold medal, the date marked to conclude their Olympic participation is Saturday, August 7. In both cases, the Mexican teams will return to Aztec territory to face matchday 4 of Mexican soccer, when America visits Atlas on Sunday, August 15.
In the particular case of America, Cruz Azul and Monterrey, if Mexico reaches the semifinals of the Olympic Games, their selected would hardly play the first leg of the semifinals in the Concacaf Champions League, which will be played between August 10 and 12, two days after the Olympic final and three days after the bronze medal game.
The America will face the Philadelphia Union on Thursday, August 12 on the Azteca Stadium field, so Henry Martín, Sebastián Córdova, Jorge Sánchez and Guillermo Ochoa would have to undertake the return trip, train and receive orders from Santiago Solari to prepare the duel in less than 5 days.
