He was not there when Germany humiliated Brazil in the latter’s own home at the football World Cup 7-1, but Neymar was here in this match against the Germans. And he gave what was missing in Brazil’s glittering football trophy rack – an Olympic Gold.

The match was tight and ended in a penalty shootout with forward Neymar scoring the winning goal to end Brazil’s campaign.

His team won the match 5-4 before thousands at the Maracana stadium.

No Brazilian watching the game would forget the 24-year-old star picking up the ball and kissing it before calmly sending it into the top corner of the goal post.

Whatever happened later was pure jubilation.
