Hernanes Goal as Brazil beat nine-man Belgium

Ecstatic Sao Paulo midfielder Hernanes rescued Brazil with a late goal as the South Americans opened their Olympic account with a scrappy 1-0 win over nine-man Belgium Thursday.

The 23-year-old twisted past a defender with 12 minutes left and unleashed a left foot drive that flew past Belgium keeper Logan Bailly to hand one of the tournament favourites a crucial win.

"When I was a child, I always dreamed about the Olympics. Now I have scored a goal and no words can explain my happiness," said the delighted Hernanes.

The Brazilians made the most of Vincent Kompany being sent off with 20 minutes left for a second yellow card, piling on the pressure to finally prise open the resiliant Belgium defence
