The London Olympics' men's soccer final between Mexico and Brazil will kick off Saturday August 11 at 10 a.m. EST.
The match will be broadcast on NBC and a live stream will be available on NBC's website, but it requires a suscription with a cable provider.
Mexico's key forward Giovani dos Santos will not play tomorrow due to a knee injury, Mexico's coach confirmed today.

"The injury is not a serious one but it is serious enough to keep him out of the match," Luis Fernando Tena said today.
Dos Santos has scored three goals through out the matches in London to help take Mexico to the Olympic final for the first time in its history.
Mexico defeated Japan 3-1 on the semi finals.
Tena said the team will give it all to win the title.
"We knew we had players capable of playing very well, now the guys know that this is once in a lifetime and we hope to enjoy it," he said, according to Mexican news agency Notimex.
In the other hand, Brazil is also fighting for its first Olympic soccer gold medal and its first Olympic final in 24 years. The team has won two bronze medals and two silvers in the past.
Brazil beat South Korea 3-0 at the semi finals.
"If you had a chance to write a plot for a film about winning a gold medal, you could not choose a better place for it than Wembley," Brazil's coach Mano Menezes said, according to Reuters.
