LONDON – The final round of the 2012 London Olympic Games men’s football are now ready to take place. Mexico and Brazil will face off in a match that can lead both to win either gold or silver, while South Korea and Japan will compete for the bronze.

Brazil defeated South Korea in a destructive 3-0. The Brazilians creatively manoeuvred the ball to allow midfielder Romulo to score in the first half. Striker Leandro Damiao drove the team to guaranteed victory by scoring double goals.

The South Koreas showed disappointment over not receiving a penalty, despite Alex Sandro’s squabble with Kim Bokyung.

A consistent three goals in all matches determines Brazil’s impressive performance in the competition. Damiao scored a spectacular six in the nation’s five games, making him the undisputed star of the team.

Japan tasted its first defeat in the contest against Mexico 3-1. The Japanese men were unsuccessful in securing a first-time double-gold opportunity alongside their women’s team after pressure from the Mexicans tore them down.

Mexico had to go past through Japan’s unbeaten run in order to advance to their first Olympic football gold medal round. Yuki Otsu scored on the 12th minute, giving the Japanese team a spirited chance of reaching the gold medal round.

The Mexicans eventually turned the contest around. Marco Fabian gave pressure to the Japanese by scoring on the 31st minute. Oribe Peralta sent the team leading over their opponents through a 65th minute second goal. Javier Cortes scored on the last minute of the game, breaking Japanese hopes of an equalizer.
