Brazil reaches the gold medal game after beating Mexico on penalties. They will play the winner of Spain vs. Japan. Interestingly, this this the third time in a row that Brazil makes it to the gold medal game, having lost in 2012 to Mexico and winning in 2016 in Rio.

if my information is correct, Brazil is the only team to have reached 3 straight Gold medal games (2012, 2016, 2020) , 3 straight World Cup finals (1994, 1998, 2002) , 3 straight Copa America’s (1995, 1997, 1999) and 3 straight Confederation Cups (2005, 2009, 2013)

Brazil beat Spain 2–1 in ET to win gold for the second time in a row. Great win and well deserved. A lot of young talent for Brazil who will hopefully make it to the senior team and possibly 2022 WC, including Cunha, Antony, BrunoG, Malcom, Arana.

And can’t say enough about the legend Dani Alves: at 38 years old, he not only provided the leadership and experience, he freaking played every minute of every game! He has now the most decorated athlete, having won 42 titles with club and NT and is one WC win away from being the only player to achieve the quartet (winning a Copa America, Confederation Cup, Olympic gold and a WC)
