Brazil women claim gold at Pan American Games after Colombia win

The Brazilian side came out on top in Toronto.

The Brazil women's team won the gold medal at the Pan American Games on Saturday, after defeating Colombia 4-0.

Veteran striker Formiga set Brazil on their way with a seventh minute goal as she headed home a free kick.

The score remained 1-0 until after half-time while Colombia goalkeeper Paula Forero had to be substituted after a collision with her own defender. 

Brazil then took advantage in the second half and Maurine Dorneles, Andressa and Fabiana all struck in the final stages to claim first place and a gold medal.

In the men's competition, Brazil collected bronze at CIBC Hamilton Pan Am Soccer Stadium after beating Panama 3-1, with the final set to take place on Sunday between Mexico and Uruguay.
