Brazilian girls fight until the end…but gold remains with the USA

“What did I do wrong,” asked the best soccer player in the world Marta after her last chance of scoring. As she looks up to the sky, the referee ends the match. Once again the United States wins the gold medal in the Olympic Games of 2008. The Brazilian girls dominated the first 90 minutes, but on the sixth minute of extra time Carli Lloyd scored for the Americans. With Kobe Bryant and soccer legend Pele on the stands, Brazil loses another chance to defeat the US team. USA now has two consecutive gold medals.

Marta weeps after match.
