The 2012 London Olympics is drawing to a close and today the final football match took place between Brazil and Mexico. People from around the world were enthralled for this exciting match, as both the teams were considered a very good match for each other. However, eventually it was the Mexicans who beat the Brazilians and they are now taking home their first Olympic gold medal ever. In fact, this is the first time that the Mexicans are taking home any Olympic medal in football and today they celebrated with a lot of joy over this fact.
The match started off with a lot of cheering by the crowd, and it was not long before the Mexicans scored the first goal of the match. In fact, the first goal of the match was made just 28 seconds after it started and the player who scored the goal for Mexico was. This put a lot of pressure on Brazil, who, for some reason, showed somewhat sloppy performance from there on. After a while, the Mexicans scored their second goal. Again, the goal was scored by Oribe Peralta and from that moment, it started becoming quite apparent that Mexico would be taking home their first gold medal. Even after the second goal by Mexico, Brazil had not even scored their first goal so the pressure was definitely creeping onto them.

The star of the match was none other than Oribe Peralta, who scored both the goals from Mexico. After Mexico won the match, the Brazilian players were seen utterly disappointed and their manager, Mano Menezes, was totally shocked over this defeat. According to reports, he had been very bent on Brazil winning this match, as this would have set the tone for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, which is set to take place in Brazil.
