RIO DE JANEIRO, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 20th Augst,2016) - Germany handed departing coach Silvia Neid the perfect send off by claiming women's football Olympic gold for the first time thanks to a 2-1 win over Sweden in front of a huge crowd at Rio's Maracana.
Dzsenifer Marozsan's sweet strike and Lisa Sembrant's comical own goal put Germany 2-0 up early in the second-half before Stina Blackstenius gave Sweden a lifeline. Canada beat hosts Brazil 2-1 in Sao Paulo earlier on Friday to claim bronze.
