Mexico 2 Brazil 1: Goal-den moments as Peralta double sends Mexico into dreamland and keeps Brazil waiting for Rio
15:54 GMT, 11 August 2012
Oribe Peralta scored twice to upset favourites Brazil and send the Olympic football title back to Mexico for the first time ever.
Peralta stunned the Wembley crowd inside the first 30 seconds as sloppy Brazilian defending allowed him in to beat Rafael Cabral at his near post.
Brazil rarely showed the kind of quality that brought them to the final, and it was hardly a surprise when Peralta sealed the deal with a fine header 15 minutes from the end. A late goal for Brazil from Hulk came too late.
A silver medal was little consolation for the selecao, who will now have to wait until 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janiero to break their Olympic duck. More to follow…
