90+1'  That brings an end to tonight's game and to Fiji's football campaign in the Olympics. Germany have booked a place for themselves in the quarter finals at the end of what was quite a mismatch. The game ends 10-0. Fiji lost all three matches in the group stages, but can take pride in having qualified for the Olympics. Germany and their coach Horst Hrubesch will look to improve their performances in the upcoming games. Despite today's victory, they were unconvincing against Mexico and South Korea.

...

90'  The referee indicates there will be one minute of added time to play.

...

86'  The Fiji players appear to have gained some heart in the dying minutes. A collective boost of energy and enthusiasm as they play the last few minutes of their Rio Olympics 2016 campaign.

...

82'  Play resumes. Naidu seems to have a slight limp, but he'll be okay to see out the remainder of the game.

...

80'  A break in play. Praneel Naidu appears to have picked up an injury.

...

76'  The Fiji players look completely spent. They are absolutely exhausted, and are offering the Germans almost no resistance.

73'  Hughes picks up a booking for sinking his studs into Lars Bender.

...
...

70'  And thats ten goals for Germany. Brandt's shot was saved by the keeper, but the rebound fell to Petersen, who just had to nod it into an empty net. 5 for Petersen.

...

67'  Changes. Turagabeci comes on for Nakalevu, and  Germany bring on Promel for Christiansen.

...
...

...

63'  Singh is booked for a poor challenge in the box, and concedes another penalty.

...

62'  It's been a while since the Fiji players have entered the opposition half. They're too busy facing the German onslaught to build an attack of their own.

...

58'  Max Meyer steps up and shoots hard and low to the right, but the keeper dives and manages to keep it out. Good save.

...

57'  Penalty to Germany. Fiji keeper Tamanisau is booked for bringing Petersen down in the penalty area.

...

56'  Julian Brandt misses an opportunity to put his name on the scoresheet. He came close, but only found the side netting with his shot.

...
...

52'  And its 8-0. Meyer makes up for the missed opportunity. Gnabry rocked a shot off the crossbar, and the ball fell kindly to Meyer, who whacked it in with a left footed volley. That's the second German hat-trick of the night.

...

51'  It should've been 8. Meyer picked up the ball in the box again and took a shot, but was denied by the upright.

...
...
