The club-versus-country row over Olympic call-ups now lies with the Court of Arbitration for Sport after Werder Bremen and Schalke both filed official complaints.

The clubs are upset after Werder playmaker Diego, 23, and Schalke defender Rafinha, 22, left without permission to join up with Brazil ahead of the tournament in Beijing next month.

FIFA have repeatedly insisted that all players aged 23 and under must be released for the tournament, but the clubs do not believe that position holds any weight as the games do not appear on FIFA´s official calendar.
