The Selecao, led by now 38-year-old Dani Alves, could not get past their semi-final opponents Mexico either in regular time or in extra time, but took a comfortable 4-1 win on penalties.

Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli, Borussia Dortmund striker Reiner, Dani Alves and Lyons Bruno Guimaraes all converted their penalties, while only Carlos Rodriguez scored the goal for Mexico in a disappointing end to an outstanding Olympic season.

The result is that Brazil will face either Spain or Japan in the final of the competition, which takes place in five days. They will know their opponents at the end of the day, while the Spaniards face the hosts later in the day.
The most decorated man in history
With the upcoming final, ex-Barcelona player Dani Alves has the chance to expand his record as the best decorated player in the history of men’s football. He is currently four times ahead of former team-mate Lionel Messi at 42, but the Argentine is likely to add to his current record.

Alves, however, does not. At 38, this could be his last chance at cutlery, which is sure to spur him and his team on.
