Two nations with incredible international history go head-to-head for Olympic gold in Rio on Saturday.

One, Brazil, is led by one of the world’s biggest superstars in Neymar, and has five World Cups and five Olympic medals. But they’ve never won gold, and they are hosting this particular Olympic Games.

The other, Germany, has four World Cups and three European Championships to go with five Olympics medals including gold at the 1976 Games in Canada (as East Germany).

Serge Gnabry of Arsenal has been a bright light for the Germans, as has Nils Petersen of SC Freiburg.

Who will come out on top? Your guess is as good as ours, but we know it’s worth watching this afternoon.
