Meyer wins the coin toss - is that a good omen for Germany? The huddles have begun, with last minute instructions about the penalties being handed out.

So, its down to Weverton and Timo Horn, with the latter far more experienced. Germany are historically more successful with penalties, but can Brazil harness the powers of their partisan crowd?

FT: Brazil 1-1 Germany  (AET) - We head to penalties to decide the Gold Medal Final

...

120' Brazil have a final attack, can they break down the Germans?

...

117' Germany are being very, very negative on the ball, with tons of square passes. Brazil pounce and set up a counter which ends with Rafinha's shot on goal blocked by Klostermann.

...

115' Neymar earns a free kick for a shove by Sule. However, the hosts are unable to make a clear chance from the set-piece.

...

114' False alarm - Neymar seems to have recovered, but Germany are now on the attack

...

113' Oh dear! Neymar has pulled up and is limping with the Maracana holding its breath as Germany pass the ball around!

...

112' Germany are content to slow the tempo down and frustrate their opponents and the partisan crowd inside the Maracana. This is quite an intimidating atmosphere!

...

110' SHOT! Neymar finds some space on the left edge of the box, and unleashes a hot on goal, but it flies wide. He looks like he's trying too hard!

...

108' Good defending from Ginter! Felipe Anderson charges into the box from the left wing and looks to cut the ball back, but Ginter throws his body on the line to block
