Brazil beats Germany 5-4 to win Men's football Gold Medal

The Olympics hosts, Brazil last night beat Germany 5-4 on penalties to win their first men’s Olympics football gold medal.  The game finished 1-1 after extra time, with Neymar's first-half free-kick cancelled out by Max Meyer's strike.

In the penalty shootout, Germany's Nils Petersen had his penalty saved by Weverton, while Neymar scored the winning goal.

This is coming two years after Germany thrashed Brazil 7-1 in the 2014 World Cup semi-finals in Belo Horizonte.
