OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL DUEL

The final match of Rio 2016 men’s Olympic soccer will be kicked off in new few hours as Brazil faces Germany in a possibly promising show. this is the best chance for the host nation to achieve this prestigious global award and ending their ever-lasting dream of winning Olympic tournament, a competition they surprisingly never managed to stamp their authority on the glory either being denied in final step as it was the case when losing the 2012 London Olympic to Mexico or repeatedly being eliminated in play-offs of previous edition of this tournament. the game on Saturday itself realistically anticipates navigating far deeper context of national desire with fierce determination to re-establish their crucial global pedigree, a an instrument that emerged into a gradual rising challenge appeared almost nearly destroyed in recent years after series of Brazilian’s miserable disappointment in different competitions, world cup 2014 was of course their biggest humiliation following by their repeatedly struggling to deliver in continental championships despite having number of super stars at their ranks.

Neymar seemed ready to fire the host nation, but their slow start to their campaign after being held up for two goalless draw against South Africa and Iraq in their two opening games brought in some concern about possibility of repeating the same disappointing stories, but they regained their confidence in routing Demark 4-0 in the final match of group A into quarter-final. Neymar flourished his best features to coordinate vital possession movements in advance midfield position, forming fluid passing interchanges with Gabriel Barbosa to inspire pace in exposing defenses, while Jesus eventually joined them to free up effective link up runs as striker with three of them rotating more purposefully to switch the play with their technical abilities, moreover; Luan and Santos supervised well defined central partnership to control spaces deep in midfield and equally contributed timely passing to attackers, allowing them to operate dynamic moves out wide to combine with Neymar and Barbosa. their battle against Colombia witnessed an extreme intensity and surely high drama with series of aggressive fighting moments happened between players of two sides, resulted in a red card for Colombian player and ultimately Neymar orchestrated an enjoyable winner for the host against their tough south American rival before easily trashing Honduras 6-0 in the semi-final to move within touching distance of their dream title. the remarkable pattern of this final perhaps offers a critically dual perspective of hard line of crisis and glorification. it is a fair share of restoring Selecao’s problematic journey to define a highly convincing transition from struggling past few years into sparking sigs of promising era in near future by winning a major glory, further it is a life time opportunity for Brazilians to whip out the biggest nightmare and arguably their most miserable experience in the history of international football, losing 7-1 to Germany in the semi of world cup. relatively there is slim vision to believe in public image finding a remedy to forget that painful day hammered the nation two years ago, however; it would in fact provide an extra motivation for Brazil side to apply a much needed factor of eagerness to adapt playing their most brilliant football against a top qualify German team, whom entirely adapted to inspire the blue print of their senior team at their rank, playing a masterful tactical coordination and sheer technical capabilities, applying neat consistent passing movements with highest precision and speed, energetic change of run between the line in counter, strong pressing in defense and dynamic interchange of play going forward with considerable possession to control the pressure. Serge Gnabry scored five times in this tournament, his quick change of pace to link up with Julian Brandt as two direct strikers constantly offer mobility of keeping accurate passing exchanges between midfielders to control the pace of movements, specially has their Captain Maximilian Meyers to coordinate fine crafty touch from central position when one striker pushing high and one switching wide, Meyer interchange more fluidly behind them and Lars Bender joining to circulate ball more consistently, Leverkuzen man has experience to win spaces and track back. Meyer would drift inside in transition to combine with overlaps of wide players to break defenses with their speed as long as Gnabry penetrates to round his marker and finish it as he has done incredibly so far. they crashed a fluid attacking side in Portugal 4-0 in quarter-final through their fantastic game plan before masterminding their efficient display to beat great Nigerians in reliance of balanced pressing-counter and fine combination attacking play for a passage to the final. Brazil still seeing a far bridge to stamp their remarks on international stage and seem to obligate producing a worthy performance to set at least a demanded bench mark at international stage to regain their reputation and finally live up to some promising level by winning a title at home soil after all.
