Argentina Defeats Brazil in Olympic Semi-Final (3-0)

Argentina defeated Brazil 3-0 in the semi-finals of the Olympics to set up an Olympic final against Nigeria in the men's football competition. Sergio Aguero put Argentina ahead on 53 minutes when he chested in a low cross before his glanced shot added a second. Ronaldinho's free-kick hit the post for Brazil and Alexandre Pato was dubiously ruled offside when he touched in a Marcelo cross in the aftermath. Juan Riquelme's penalty finished off a Brazil side who had Lucas Leiva and Thiago Neves sent off late on.
