Brazil vs Germany LIVE: 2020 Tokyo Olympics result, final score and reaction


Brazil’s Men soccer squad prepare for Olympic debut against Germany

After the Women’s tournament kicked off football at the 2020 Olympics on Wednesday – Team GB picking up an impressive victory – the Men’s event has followed suit on Thursday with Mexico and New Zealand among the early winners.

Now it’s the turn of two of the most storied international sides to step up as Brazil face Germany in the Nissan Stadium at Yokohama. As usual, these are U23 squads but with three overage players apiece involved – legendary right-back Dani Alves is one such selection for the South Americans. Notable names in each squad for Premier League followers include Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli, Everton’s Richarlison and Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz from Brazil. Germany’s squad is almost entirely domestic-based, with one exception.

Also in Group D are Ivory Coast and Saudi Arabia, with the top two nations going through to claim a quarter-final spot.

Both these nations are among the favourites to win Olympic Gold, along with the likes of Spain in the Men’s tournament.

Brazil vs Germany at Tokyo 2020


Tokyo 2020: Brazil 3-1 Germany

83 mins: Brazil will take so much from this match. They essentially had it sewn up before half-time against the silver medallists from Rio.

Schlotterbeck comes on for Stach for the final ten minutes or so here. Bit of a graveyard shift, that.

Tokyo 2020: Brazil 3-1 Germany

80 mins: Great chance for another of Brazil’s substitutes. This time it’s Reinier who Douglas Luiz clips a delightful ball into but he fails to bring the ball down inside the penalty area and Muller can mop up.

Germany are chasing shadows now and almost certainly will do until the final whistle here.

Tokyo 2020: Brazil 3-1 Germany

77 mins: Cunha lays it off superbly for Paulinho who looks to find the corner of the net with his first touch. He guides it low but Muller is equal to it. It comes back out to Douglas Luiz but his effort is well over.

All Brazil since this moment…

Tokyo 2020: Brazil 3-1 Germany

74 mins: More subs here as Antony and hat-trick hero Richarlison make way for Brazil, replaced by Paulinho and Reinier.

Germany also make a change as Teuchert comes on for goalscorer Amiri.

Tokyo 2020: Brazil 3-1 Germany

72 mins: Dani Alves, who was playing at right-back for the first 70 minutes, has now gone into central midfield. You’ve got to love that. A 38-year-old – with more than 40 major trophies in European football – living it up in midfield at the Olympic Games.

He’s knocking it around with a real freedom now. Germany looking leggy.

Tokyo 2020: Brazil 3-1 Germany

70 mins: Ache and Lowen are both on for Kruse and Richter now. That’s all three of Germany’s over 24 players off the pitch. Kruse, Richter and Arnold. They’re down to the youngsters.

The tempo has totally gone from the Germans. They are sitting in a defensive block as if they have a lead to protect. That can happen when you’re a man down.

Meanwhile, Richarlison is STILL playing. Would you not want to conserve him?

Tokyo 2020: Brazil 3-1 Germany

68 mins: The free-kick is whipped in by Alves as Germany look to re-group following the sending off. It’s punched away unconvincingly for a corner by Muller.

Malcom’s corner is poor and Germany can clear their lines, but they have very little in the way of an outlet now.

Brazil dominating the ball.

Tokyo 2020: Brazil 3-1 Germany

65 mins: SUB! Brazil’s Claudinho goes off and is replaced by Malcom.

RED CARD! Brazil 3-1 Germany (Arnold)

63 mins: Oh dear. Germany down to ten men as Max Arnold is shown a second yellow card for a late tackle on Dani Alves. Perhaps a little harsh, looks more like a coming together than a clear foul.

That could well end any hopes Germany have of getting something from this game.

Tokyo 2020: Brazil 3-1 Germany

62 mins: Kruse thought he was in behind the Brazil defence for a moment there. His eventual cross was blocked but he was offside anyway.

The tempo of the game has just dropped off slightly in the last few minutes. Don’t blame the Brazil players, they haven’t stopped running for an hour.
