Rio Olympics 2016: Soccer Games Results, Where To Watch; Neymar's Fastest Soccer Goal in Olympic History; Brazil & Germany Soccer Finals


The Brazil men's soccer team is glorious to take a shot of their first-ever Olympic gold medal and the victorious moment would partially credit to one record-breaking 15-second play.

That's how long it took in a semifinal game for Brazil's Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior (better known as Neymar) to score, as it set the stage for the definitive 6-0 victory of Brazil over Honduras. The win of Brazil secured the Olympic host country a spot in Saturday's Rio Olympics 2016 Soccer Games final.

Right after the game's opening kick-off, the Brazilian soccer superstar Neymar intercepted an ugly pass and got just one touch to guide it toward the goal before crashing into Honduras goalkeeper Luis López. As the ball bounced softly into the net, it turned out to be the fastest goal in Olympic history, according to PEOPLE.

But, Neymar awkwardly fell on the play and the football superstar was taken off on a stretcher. However, Neymar returned to the soccer field several minutes later and appeared fine. Neymar also rack up the final goal of Brazil on a penalty kick, NPR reported.

Meanwhile, the German defender Lukas Klostermann was the unlikely goalscorer of the game against Nigeria, when Klostermann made a sudden run forward and tapped in an open goal from Maximilian Meyer's cross on the ground in the ninth minute. The goal was the first made by Klostermann at any level of the German national team, according to FIFA.

After their win over Nigeria, Germany will face the Olympic host country Brazil in the gold medal match at the Rio 2016 Olympics Men's Football Tournament.

However, the Germans achieved their best-ever finish at the Men's Olympic Football Tournament, as Germany's record before Rio 2016 was a bronze medal at Seoul 1988.

The Olympic men's soccer finals will be held at Rio's iconic Maracana Stadium.
