  • Neymar of Brazil celebrates scoring the winning penalty

Rio de Janeiro — Neymar scored the winning penalty as hosts Brazil beat Germany 5-4 on penalties in Rio to win their first men's Olympic football gold medal.

The game finished 1-1 after extra time, with Neymar's first-half free-kick cancelled out by Max Meyer's strike.

In the shootout, Germany's Nils Petersen had his penalty saved by Weverton before Neymar won it.

It comes two years after Germany thrashed Brazil 7-1 in the 2014 World Cup semi-finals in Belo Horizonte.
