Toyko Olympics: Brazil Defeat Spain After Extra Time As Dani Alves Wins His 44th Title


Former Barcelona defender, Dani Alves helped Brazil secure Olympic gold and lifted his 44th title in an illustrious career, extending his advantage as the most decorated footballer of all time. 

 

With the 2-1 win after extra-time over Spain in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, the 38-year-old Sao Paulo defender has bettered his already incredible record.


Matheus Cunha scored in first-half stoppage time after Richarlison missed a penalty when he smashed over the crossbar for Brazil.

 

Spain equalized on the hour when Mikel Oyarzabal scored a volley, but former Barcelona forward Malcom secured Brazil the title with his goal in the 108th minute.
