One match to go for Brazil. Only Mexico stands in the way of its first Olympic gold in football.
Brazil moved a step closer to winning the elusive medal by beating South Korea 3-0 on Tuesday and reaching the final of the men’s Olympic tournament for the first time in 24 years.
It will face Mexico, which defeated Japan 3-1 at Wembley to advance to its first Olympic final.
Brazil was the bronze medallist in 2008 in Beijing but hadn’t reached the final since the 1988 Seoul Games, when a team led by Romario and Bebeto finished with the silver.
Brazil also won the silver in the 1984 Los Angeles Games and got another bronze in the 1996 Atlanta Games.
Now only the gold will do for a team, which came into the London Games as the top favourite.
