Viva La Brazil! Gold Medal in Men’s Soccer as Brazil gets revenge over Germany

Unreal.  Their once impossible dream finally comes true

Neymar scored the first goal 35 minutes into the gold medal match for men’s soccer (futbol for some of you), but Germany ties it in the second half.  Over 40 more anxious game minutes pass before nobody scores in extra time.

A shootout then takes place.  The first four guys all score, but the fifth German player was blocked and the man of the moment–Neymar put it in and at approximately 8:09 p.m. Rio time, Brazil at long last has their Olympic gold in their number one sport.

Parabéns a todos os envolvidos

Congratulations to all involved!
