Only four days of men's soccer remain at the 2012 London Olympics, and while some things have gone according to plan (Brazil and Great Britain reaching the quarterfinals), there have also been a number of surprises, none bigger than the complete collapse of the Spanish team.
The four remaining days, no matter what happens, will offer the opportunity to witness history. Of the eight teams remaining, only Great Britain has won Olympic gold before, and the last time it did so was in 1912. So either a nation will win its first ever Olympic gold in soccer, or Great Britain will win the gold medal for the first time in a century on its home turf.
All of the matches will be televised by NBC networks, and live streaming is available at NBCOlympics.com.
