Tokyo Olympics: Brazil qualify for men’s football final after 4-1 win over Mexico

Brazil on Tuesday booked their place in the final of the Olympics men’s football event, following a 4-1 penalty win over Mexico.

The encounter ended 0-0 after 120 minutes at the Kashima Soccer Stadium.

Brazil’s Dani Alves scored the opening penalty, just beating goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, before Santos denied Mexico’s Eduardo Aguirre.

The Seleção scored their next three penalties through Gabriel Martinell, Bruno Guimaraes and Reinier to seal their spot in Saturday’s final.

Brazil will now face the winner between Japan vs Spain in the final.

The South Americans defeated Germany 4-2 in their opening Group D game in July before a 0-0 draw with Ivory Coast and a 3-1 victory over Saudi Arabia to qualify as group leaders.

Brazil defeated Egypt last week to qualify for the semifinal.
