Hosts Brazil have qualified for the final of the men's football event of the Rio Olympic Games after defeating Honduras 6-0 in Wednesday's semi-final.
Goals from Neymar, Manchester City new signing Gabriel Jesus, Marquinhos, and Luan secured Brazil their fourth men's finals in the Olympics.
Neymar set Brazil to the path to victory, giving them the lead inside 15 seconds after capitalising on a defensive error by Honduras to score the fastest goal in Olympic football history.
In the 26th minute, Jesus beat the offside trap before slipping the ball beneath Honduras keeper who came rushing out of his goal.
And with 10 minutes remaining in the first half, Jesus got on the score sheet to make it 4-0 after collecting a through pass from the midfield and placing it in the roof of the net.
Six minutes into the second half, Marquinhos made it 4-0 after he was left unmarked from a corner.
In the 79th minute, Luan scored Brazil's fifth goal following a quick counter-attack. Neymar then scored from the penalty spot late on to make it 6-0 after Luan was fouled.
They will now face Germany in the final which comes up on Saturday.
