Brazil vs. Mexico: Preview, Live Updates

Mexico lead Brazil 1-0 at half time.

Both teams are competing for a maiden Gold Medal in Olympic Football, a staggering statistic when you look at Brazil's list of honours.

So far Brazil have perhaps looked the better team, but there's a carelessness in their game that has failed to cause Mexico many problems.

So far it looks like El Tricolor are happy to let the Brazilians play, but an Oribe Peralta goal after 28 seconds has given the luxury of being able to do that.

There's a lack of cohesive quality in the Brazil midfield, with Oscar perhaps the only player who can hold his head up high.

Hulk came on as a substitute after 32 minutes and since then a greater sense of urgency has crept into the Brazilian ranks, but Mexico are clear favourites for Gold at half time.
