With only four men’s soccer teams left in the Rio Olympics, the competition is more intense than ever. Brazil and Honduras are the first teams to battle it out for a spot in the finals — don’t miss any of the action with a live stream right here!
The gold medal is so close these teams can almost taste it, so surely Brazil’s and Honduras’ national teams will both be playing this game like it’s their last! Brazil may technically be the better team of the two, but Honduras has managed to surprise every opponent they’ve faced since the preliminaries. Neymar and his team better be ready for anything! The teams face off at 12:00 p.m. ET on Aug. 17, so get your live streams ready!
Brazil has yet to have a goal scored on them in these Olympics, which will likely give them plenty of confidence (but also keep them on their toes) against Honduras. Plus, they’re coming off of a huge 2-0 victory over Colombia, the team that knocked Neymar out of the 2014 World Cup with a broken back bone and resulted in a crushing loss for Brazil in the semifinals. Honduras better be ready to face a team who is seemingly more than ready to win!
Then again, Honduras has had quite the exciting run in Rio, knocking out 2004 and 2008 gold medalists Argentina with a 1-1 draw in the preliminaries and a thrilling 1-0 win over South Korea in the quarterfinals. Honduras may not have a man like Neymar or a history like Brazil’s, but Anthony Lozano and his squad seemingly are not going to go down without a fight!
Whoever ends up winning the match will face the winner of the Nigeria vs. Germany match that takes place just three hours later at 3:00 p.m. ET. No matter who wins, though, the loser will still have a chance at the bronze medal — so all hope won’t be lost for either team!
