After falling behind 2-0, Brazil tried to make a comeback in the closing minutes of the game.
Hulk scored Brazil‘s only goal of the game in the first minute of injury time. Brazil had a chance to tie the game in the final minute, but Hulk‘s header went above the crossbar.
After the game, Brazilian players sat on the field, stunned and covering their face while Mexican men’s soccer team celebrate their victory near the midfield.
The silver medal is Brazil‘s third, winning the other two in 1984 and 1988 final match.
