"Neymar scored the winning kick of a dramatic penalty shootout to cap the first Olympics held in South America with the victory that mattered most. After regulation and extra-time finished 1-1, Brazil beat Germany to win the men’s soccer tournament.", www.wsj.com
"RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Brazil won the medal it wanted the most Saturday, claiming its first Olympic gold in soccer and providing a lift to a beleaguered nation in the process. The win boosted the spirits of a country that has been dealing with a recession, political turmoil, health scares and rampant crime — not to mention the lingering effects of a 7-1 rout against Germany in the 2014 World Cup. The soccer championship headlined a golden day in the Rio Olympics, featuring a full slate of track and field, the future of boxing on display in a medal bout and a Hall of Fame golfer pulling off an impressive comeback. The U.S. women's basketball team handily beat Spain 101-72 for a sixth straight title ; the American women have not lost an Olympic contest since 1992. In the final, Neymar not only clinched the win in penalty kicks but scored the team's lone goal in regulation. Olympic soccer features under-23 teams while the World Cup is for the top national squad.", www.sfchronicle.com

Brazil won its first Olympic gold medal in soccer Saturday with a dramatic penalty kick by Neymar to defeat Germany, sending the nation into a frenzy. The country had been battered by recession, political scandal, health scares over polluted water and the Zika virus and questions over whether it could pull off hosting the Olympics. The men's soccer tournament attracted most of the attention of Brazilian fans at the Olympics. Julian Brandt's right-footed shot from outside the area struck the crossbar, a deflected cross into the area bounced off the woodwork, and a header exploded off the crossbar again.", www.sfgate.com
"It happened, of course, on a soccer field, where national pride was at stake and where a tale of revenge was told. A 5-4 penalty-kick victory over Germany — after a 1-1 tie through regulation and 30 minutes of extra time — in the Olympic gold-medal match. [...] Neymar stepped up to take the final penalty kick. The 7-1 drubbing in a semifinal on its home soil was one of the greatest embarrassments the country had ever suffered. A win in an under-23 Olympic tournament can’t make up for that loss, a gold medal can’t replace a World Cup trophy, but it helps ease the pain. The decorated Brazil national program had won everything, but never before a gold medal. On Neymar’s abilities — even though he hadn’t been able to play in the World Cup semifinal due to a broken bone in his back, suffered in the previous match. On Saturday the fans, most wearing his No. 10 jersey, at packed Maracana serenaded Neymar — “Ole, ole, ole Ney-mar,", www.sfgate.com
