Rio Olympics 2016: Brazil reach semi-finals on penalties

Goalkeeper Barbara saved the decisive penalty as hosts Brazil beat Australia 7-6 on penalties to move into the Olympic football semi-finals.

Alanna Kennedy then saw Barbara save her penalty to send Brazil into a semi-final with Sweden in Rio on Tuesday.

Canada will face Germany in the other last-four tie.

Sweden beat defending champions United States in their quarter-final.
