Rio Olympics 2016 Soccer Games Live Stream, News & How To Watch: Brazil Finally Goals At The Olympic Games


The Brazil Men's Soccer team finally found its scoring touch at the 2016 Rio Olympics, as they defeated Denmark 4-0 to advance to the quarterfinals and refrain from another embarrassing elimination in front of the home fans.

Brazil forward Gabriel Barbosa Almeida scored twice, and Gabriel Fernando de Jesus and Luan Guilherme de Jesus Vieira netted a goal each at the Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador, to keep the nation's hopes alive of winning the Olympics soccer gold medal for the first time.

Like in the previous 180 minutes at the Rio Olympics, Brazil soccer team spent the first spell of the game directing one-way traffic and putting up endless chances, succeeding at every gameplay but actually not putting the ball into the goal.

But, in the 26th minute of the game, Barbosa, commonly called as Gabigol, delivered one of those goals at a distance. Gabigol scuffed the ball off the outside of his foot, but got just enough of it to smack the goalkeeper Jeppe Hojbjerg. It appeared to be an epic goal drought, in which a mis-hit shot trickling over the line, according to Yahoo.

Then, Brazil's Barbosa celebrates with teammate Neymar after scoring his team's first goal.

In its first two group games, Brazil had been held to scoreless draws and they really needed a victory to assure a spot in the 2016 Summer Olympics knockout round, based on the report of News Day.

The Brazil soccer team will host James David Rodríguez Rubio and the Colombia soccer team on Saturday in Sao Paulo.

The Brazil soccer team finished first in Group A with five points, one point up compared to Denmark, which also advanced and will play the Nigerian Soccer team. South Africa and Iraq were eliminated from the Rio Olympics 2016 after a 1-1 draw.

However, the Rio Olympics 2016 Soccer Games Live streaming will be carried online by the Olympics website of NBC.
