Football gold for Mexico
A brace from Oribe Peralta secured a 2-1 win over Brazil and gold for Mexico in the Olympic football final at Wembley.
The Mexicans stunned the South Americans with a complete performance in front of a capacity crowd at Wembley, with favourites Brazil offering little in return and making several uncharacteristic mistakes.
Peralta scored the fastest goal in Olympic football history when he capitalised on an under-hit pass by Brazilian defender Rafael to find the back of the net after just 29 seconds and give Mexico the lead.
Brazil showed some resistance in the minutes that followed but they were unable to turn possession and territorial advantage into goals ahead of half-time.
Luis Fernando Tena's side took a physical approach in the first half and the tactic continued to pay dividends well into the second, much to the frustration of Tena's opposite number Mano Menezes.
On 75 minutes Mexico and Peralta added a second to give the underdogs an unlikely cushion at an advanced stage in the match and, though Hulk responded for Brazil in the first minute of stoppage time, it was too little, too late for Samba boys, who were forced to settle for silver.
