Brazil does it again at the 2020 Summer Olympics games exactly five years after Neymar led them to the Olympic Games gold medal. That became the first Olympic gold achievement despite their dominance in big competitions.
On Saturday, the five-time World Cup winners went back-to-back as they beat Spain in extra time in Tokyo, thanks to Malcom’s goal. Cunha scored the opener for Brazil before Mikel Oyarbazal equalized for the Spanish.
FIFA chief Infantino was in Japan to award the gold and silver medals to the finalists and Everton forward Richarlison had some words for the 51-year-old.
As the forward was presented his medal he said, “Hey, baldie, next year [we are winning it] in Qatar,” referencing next year’s lm’s goal.
