South america played out their 2nd consecutive goalless draw in the Men's Olympic Football Event Rio 2016, held in Brasilia with a resilient Iraq. A Sele??o had nearly all possession, as well as went close - especially with Renato Augusto striking the crossbar - however they could not break lower Abdul-Ghani Shahad's side.


The actual hosts made a fast-paced begin to the match, with Gabriel thwarted through Mohamed Hameed after finding himself one-on-one using the Iraqi goalkeeper.


Iraq also went close within the opening stages, Durgham Ismael's long toss was flicked on through Mohanad Abdulraheem, but his header hit the post and was cleared away through the nervy Brazilian defence.


Rogerio Micale's side continued to produce chances throughout the very first half, along with Neymar and Gabriel once again going close before Renato Augusto hit the woodwork, but they could not really break the Iraqis down prior to the  Fifa 17 Coins.


It was more from the same after the reactivate, along with Iraq's Suad Natiq as well as Saad Abdulamir guarding the actual backline well, plus some sturdy defending through the Asian outfit.


Brazil applied pressure through the second period, but could not break up the solid defensive framework facing them. Renato Augusto had the very best chance of the online game to open the rating, in to stoppage time, but the No5 volleyed on the William cross with the web gaping and Hameed well from his goal.


The result leaves South america trailing Group A frontrunners Denmark, who they face within their final pool game, through two points. Iraq are level using the hosts and they encounter bottom side South The african continent on Wednesday in Sao Paulo.
