Brazil striker Neymar 'happy' with Olympic silver medal


Bruised by their loss to Mexico in the Olympic final, Brazil begins their journey to the 2014 World Cup with a friendly against Sweden on Wednesday.

The match — the last to be played at Stockholm's Rasunda stadium — offers a chance for coach Mano Menezes to return home from Europe on the back of a win.

The Brazilian football federation hinted before the Olympics that a disappointing result in London could cost Menezes his job, but a decision is not expected until the team returns to Brazil later this week.

For some in the Brazil team, the disappointment of losing the final 2-1 to Mexico has started to wear off.

Forward Neymar says "life goes on. I am satisfied with the Olympics and we won a silver medal after all and I'm happy that I was there."
