Brazil remain 1-0 down against Mexico in the gold medal game at the 2012 Olympics, and they're going to need to do something if they want to get back into this match. That something turns out to be Hulk, who'd been dropped by Mano Menezes for the semifinal in favour of club teammate Alex Sandro. It's Alex Sandro who gets yanked off for the powerful forward -- he'd done alright in the match so far but the Selecao badly need someone to batter down the Mexico defence, and Hulk is as good as any for that.
This isn't all about Brazil testing Mexico, however. El Tri are playing well on the counterattack and hunting in packs in midfield, looking to isolate Neymar and pick off any wayward touches before surging forward. Their latest pair of attack sees Marco Fabian blast over the crossbar from range and then Carlos Salcido dribble a shot just wide of the post. This match is, obviously, very finely balanced.
