A samba party is underway in Newcastle after Brazil beat New Zealand 3-0 in the final Olympic Group Game at St James' Park.
The South Americans, who are the favourites for the gold medal, opened the scoring with a 23rd minute strike from Danilo.
Minutes later Leandro Damiao finished from close range to double the lead as the Brazilians took control of the match with an outstanding performance from Neymar.
Midfielder Sandro scored the third with a heavily-deflected free kick in the 52nd minute.
The only negative for the Brazilians is defender Alex Sandro was sent off for a second booking for a dive in the penalty area.
Sandbags and barricades have been erected surrounding the ground for security and several city centre roads will be closed during the matches, which are a major part of this year's Olympic programme.
The Highways Agency has reminded visitors to the football and commuters to plan their journeys on match days to avoid congestion.
Ticket holders for the events at St James’s Park are being directed to park and ride or walk and ride facilities to get to the stadium rather than add to traffic around Newcastle city centre.
