Google celebrates the gold medal soccer matches with a new doodle game

The Olympics are winding down this weekend with the closing ceremonies on Sunday. Yesterday the U.S. women's team won the gold medal in football in an exciting final against Japan – Canada defeated France 1-0 to win the bronze.

Tomorrow Brazil meets Mexico in the men's final (the U.S. men's team didn't qualify, which seems like an embarrassing failure until you realize that Germany and Italy didn't qualify either).

This morning Google has a new doodle up on its site, a soccer game. If you are reading this on an iPad, however, you won't be able to play the game so I've made a little video for you.

The doodle on the iPad links to a page which shows the Olympics soccer results, while the desktop version will let you reload the doodle to play again.
