Germany ends Nigeria’s hope for Olympic gold

Lukas Klosertmann and Nils Peterson scored to send Germany into the Olympic gold-medal match for the first time with a 2-0 semifinal victory over Nigeria on Wednesday.

The Germans will play Brazil on Saturday at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

The stadium was the site of the country’s World Cup victory in 2014, a few days after the German senior team embarrassed Brazil 7-1 in the semifinals.
