Just getting into Wolrd Cup or Euro cup just to lose for everyone would not be worth of olympic gold, not even close.. Winning the pretournament preliminary-games and getting into those tournaments would not probably occur very big reactions, even the WC gold is greater imo.

Winning WC gold in football would probably be in another dimension compared to hockey gold, thought.
