Peralta scored the two goals for Mexico at the beginning, in minute 1, and towards the end of the game, in minute 75. For Brazil, it was Hulk who scored the team's only goal and by the time the team stepped up its game to tie the scoreboard, the referee had already blown the final whistle.
With the victory, Mexico caps off a remarkable performance in Olympics soccer with six victories, one draw, zero losses, and its first ever Olympic soccer gold.
Brazil on the other hand failed to earn its first ever gold in the Olympics for the second time in a row after losing in 2008 to Argentina.
After the match ended, Mexico's president Felipe Calderon congratulated the Mexican soccer team via twitter with the following message:
"Gold for Mexico in soccer! A historical accomplishment for our country. We are happy and proud for our team!"
