Brazil will be fighting for their first gold medal in football on Saturday, while Mexico have already won the first medal in the sport in their country's history. The Brazilians are the clear favorites to capture gold, especially with the injury to Mexico's Giovani dos Santos, but Mexico has plenty of talent and won't make it an easy game.
Mano Menezes surprisingly dropped Hulk to the bench in the semifinal, and Brazil produced their best performance of the tournament. He's likely to stick with what worked, which gives him a spectacular attacking bench option that he didn't have before. Mexico will be forced into at least one change, with Miguel Ponce likely to come in for dos Santos, moving Marco Fabian into a central attacking midfield role.
Game Date/Time: Saturday, 10:00 a.m. ET, 3:00 p.m. local
Venue: Wembley Stadium, London, England
TV: NBC Sports Network
