Team Mexico got off to an amazing start by scoring a goal within the first 29 SECONDS of the match -- the fastest score in the Olympics since record-keeping started in 1976.

Brazil left the match understandably disappointed. Although the country is more or less the Mecca for soccer, they have never won an gold medal in the sport.

After the incredible first goal, Mexico held onto their lead into the halfway mark. Mexican striker Oribe Peralta also scored the second goal of the game in the 75th minute, securing the win for Mexico.

In a 2-1 victory over Japan, the U.S. Women claimed a gold medal in front of a nearly sold out Wembley Stadium. This game was more or less a rematch of last years' World Cup final, where Japan beat the U.S.

Midfielder Carly Lloyd scored BOTH goals for the U.S. starting with a goal in the eighth minute. Japan pushed back, finally managing to score in the 64th minute. Japan continued to gain momentum thanks to a passionate crowd, but the American ladies held their ground and kept Team Japan at bay.

With the exception of the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the U.S. ladies have won the gold in women's soccer in every Games since it became an Olympic sport in 1996. That's my kind of track record.

In one of the craziest soccer games we've ever seen, Team U.S.A. is heading to the gold medal match against Japan while Canada will compete against France for the bronze.

After 123 minutes of tackles, spills, and aggressiveness from both sides, the Americans scored their fourth and final goal in overtime.

The final score was 4-3. If anyone needs us, we'll be collapsed from cheering exhaustion in the back.

We've reached halftime in the quarterfinal match between South Korea and Team GB with the score knotted up at one goal apiece.

Team GB went down by a goal early, with the South Korean team looking like they were in complete control. But then a handball in the box gave GB a chance to tie it up, and they took full advantage as they drove the free kick home for the equalizer.

We're at halftime now, but if you want to catch the second half you can go here for the BBC coverage and here for NBC.

In what universe is that not a red card?!

In today's Senegal vs Mexico game, Senegal defender Pape Souare straight-up kicked Hector Herrera in the face. OUCH.

Souare was handed a yellow card for the offense, and Senegal went on to lose to Mexico 4-2.
