Saturday’s Summer Olympics schedule

News wire services
Neymar is focused on a gold medal in soccer - and a little revenge against Germany.



That’s what’s at stake Saturday for Brazil.

Because men’s soccer in the Olympics features players mostly younger than 23, many of the typical stars aren’t competing.

The host nation, however, is heavily favored to win the gold this year, led by its star Neymar.

Still …

The Germans put on a clinic in the 2014 World Cup semifinals, embarrassing Brazil, 7-1.

Could it be?
