Neymar could not break the deadlock in Rio | FIFA.COM

For a second match running, Brazil were held to a goalless draw at the Olympic Games, this time against Iraq at the Mane Garrincha stadium.

Neymar Jr, who played the whole game, and Rafinha, who came on in the 55th minute, were unable to help their side to victory in a frustrating encounter for the home nation.

Brazil created clear chances but were unable to get past the flawless Mohammed Hameed in the Iraqi goal, who earned the man of the match prize.

Despite also drawing 0-0 in the first match against South Africa, the hosts still have fate in their own hands as a victory in the final group game against Denmark, which takes place on Thursday 11 August, will see them through and could put them top of the group.
