Newcastle has been witnessing a footballing treat this evening as Brazil face Honduras in the Men's football quarter final.
Honduras took a surprise lead through Martinez (12") before Leandro Damiao (38") made it 1-1.
Brazil were then stunned when Honduras took the lead once again through Espinoza (48"), but a Neymar penalty (50") and a second for Leandro Damiao (60') has made it 3-2 to the Brazilians.
A senior London 2012 figure has described problems with tickets at St James' Park yesterday as "appalling" and "unacceptable".
Twelve years ago, Newcastle in Australia found itself just down the road from the Olympics. But did it feel the benefit?
