Brazil-Germany football final goes to penalties

Rio de Janeiro (AFP) - Brazil's quest for a first ever football Olympic gold medal will be decided on penalties after a 1-1 draw with world champions Germany.

Barcelona star Neymar's stunning first-half free-kick had the hosts headed for gold.

However, Germany captain Max Meyer equalised on 59 minutes and, despite Brazil's dominance, they couldn't find the winner in 30 minutes of extra-time.
