Rio 2016: Brazil beat Germany on penalties to win men's football gold medal for the first time in history

Maracana Stadium was filled with
celebration and relief as Brazil won
its first Olympic soccer title, defeating Germany, 5-4, on penalty kicks after the match remained tied at 1-1 through 120 minutes.

When the Brazilian goalkeeper
Weverton dived to his left to save a
penalty kick by Germany’s Nils
Petersen, the anxiety of the evening
exploded into liberation. Neymar, the star forward, then approached the ball for the winning penalty kick. He did a stutter step then shot high and assuredly.

Brazil has won five World Cups but never until that moment of release an Olympic gold medal.

Big congrats to them!
