...

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

...

106' WHAT A CHANCE! Neymar releases Felipe Anderson with a lovely reverse pass, but Horn charges down the Lazio man's shot to calm German nerves.

...

106' Brazil get us underway in the last 15 minutes of extra time!

...

105' A couple of sloppy passes in midfield means that neither Brazil nor Germany manage to create a promising situation. The first half of extra time comes to an end.

...

102' Strangely, Germany have opted for a safety first approach in the last few minutes, as they work the ball around and try to tire out their opponents. 

...

99' Jeers from the crowd as Germany pass the ball around the back and waste time, for reasons known only to them.

...

97' ALMOST! That could have been a wondergoal, as Brandt's stunning acrobatic attempt from a right wing cross goes narrowly over.

...

96' NEYMAR IS LIVID! Douglas Santos sends Luan clean through on goal, but with Neymar available, he opts to cut inside and shoot, with his effort blocked and the chance wasted.

...

95' Germany have a free-kick after Jesus fouls Brandt in his own half. That was his last action of the night, as Rafinha comes on in his place

...

92' CHANCE! Neymar's ball from deep in his own half sets Jesus free, but Sule does well to close him down and snuff out the danger.

...

91' Germany get us underway in extra time!

...

The teams get into their respective huddles ahead of the start of the first half of extra time.

...

The Germans looked rather tired as the 90 minutes ended and with the Maracan behind them, Brazil have a great chance to win this final in extra time. Either way, we have another 30 minutes of an excellent game!

...

FT: Brazil 1-1 Germany - We head to extra time in the Olympic Gold Medal Final

...

90+3' Neymar's deflected effort goes out for a corner, which is cleared as well.

...

90+2' Germany seem to have settled for extra time as they  play the ball around the back, with the Maracana jeering their every touch.

...

90' 3 minutes of injury time - Are we headed to extra time?

...

90' SHOT! Wallace goes for goal from a promising position, and his long range effort is well wide.

...

89' Gabriel Jesus is fouled yet again  as Brazil counter and Suele goes into the book

...

88' ALMOST! Weverton charges out to clear as Brandt sends Gnabry clean through on goal, only for Brazil's keeper to channel his inner Neuer and clear,

...

85' GREAT DEFENDING! Ginter with a last ditch tackle denies Luan from getting on the end of a cross. As Germany counter, Petersen sets up Meyer on the edge of the box, but screws his shot wide, and appears to have injured himself in the process.

...

83' Sven Bender and Promel get retrospective cautions for some late fouls

...

81' I can barely describe that last piece of frantic action, with Neymar, Luan and Felipe Anderson all trying to create a clear chance only for Germany to throw their bodies on the line. There only looks to be one winner here.

...

79' SHOT! Luan with a clever first time volley towards goal as the ball bobbled on the edge of the box, but Horn positions himself well to collect the shot. Brazil have upped the pressure in the last few minutes, as Gabriel Jesus is the latest to screw a shot wide.

...

77' HOW DID HE WASTE THAT?! Neymar with a lovely through ball sends Felipe Anderson through on goal, but as he lines up his shot, Ginter scrambles back and clears the ball. Moments later, Neymar turns his marker and shoots at goal, but his effort flies narrowly wide.

...

77' Replays of that 'foul' in the box / penalty appeal show that Luan took a dive.
