Brazil beat Germany on penalties to win gold medal

BINTANGNEWS.com – Brazil have finally earned their first ever Olympic football gold medal with a penalty shootout victory over Germany at Rio’s iconic Maracana stadium.
The hosts took the lead when Neymar fired in a free kick from 25 yards for his 3rd goal of the tournament.
The match had to be decided in a penalty shootout as no more goal was exchanged in regulation and extra time.
The first eight penalties were all successful before Brazil’s goalkeeper stopped Nils Petersen's effort and it was Neymar who converted the winning penalty to help the five-time world champions clinch the only major title they had never won in their history.***
