Brazil defeat Germany on penalties to win the Olympic gold

Brazil Olympic football team defeated Germany on penalties to win the Olympic football tournament. Neymar opened the scoring with a beautifully fired free kick, but Max Meyer managed to equalize after the half-time. That was the last goal of the night, as neither 90 minutes playing time, nor extra 30 minutes helped to find the winner. Penalty kicks were called into action to determine the gold medal winners. Brazil was luckier here as they won 5-4.
