Press TV – Argentina wins Olympics soccer title.

Angel Di Maria scores the goal in 58th minute.

Defending champions Argentina have retained the Olympic title following their 1-0 victory over Nigeria in the men’s soccer final.

Argentina won the gold medal after Angel Di Maria scored a stunning goal in 58th minute at Beijing’s Bird’s Nest stadium on Saturday.

Di Maria, who plays for the Portuguese team Benfica, ran virtually half the length of the field and lobbed the ball over the Nigerian goalie Ambrose Vanzekin.

Argentina managed to avenge the defeat they suffered against Nigeria in the final of the 1996 Olympics.

Brazil came third to win the bronze medal of the event after beating Belgium 3-0 at Shanghai Stadium on Friday.
