Brazil goes for their first gold medal in soccer when they take on Mexico in the final of the London 2012 Olympics.

Brazil will be fighting for its first gold medal in football on Saturday, while Mexico have already won the first medal in the sport in their country's history. The Brazilians are the clear favorites to capture gold, especially with the injury to Mexico's Giovani dos Santos, but Mexico has plenty of talent and will force Brazil to earn the win.

Mano Menezes surprisingly dropped Hulk to the bench in the semifinal, and Brazil produced its best performance of the tournament. He's likely to stick with what worked, which gives Brazil a spectacular attacking bench option that it didn't have before. Mexico will be forced into at least one change, with Miguel Ponce likely to come in for dos Santos, moving Marco Fabian into a central attacking midfield role.

Game Date/Time: Saturday, 10 a.m. ET, 3 p.m. local

Venue: Wembley Stadium, London, England

TV: NBC Sports Network
