Brazil Beats Germany in Shootout

Brazilian men’s soccer won its first ever Olympic gold on Saturday after superstar Neymar’s penalty put them on top against Germany. The win comes just two years after a devastating loss to Germany in the World Cup. The two countries were at a 1-1 draw after 120 minutes, and each nailed their first four attempts during the penalty shootout. However, Germany’s Nils Petersen missed the fifth shot for Germany, and Neymar put it away.
