Brazil Beat Peru To Win The 2019 Copa America

Brazil Beat Peru To Win The 2019 Copa America

Brazil have ended their 12 year wait for the Copa America after beating Peru 3-1 in the final.

The Maracana erupted when Everton Soares opened the scoring in the 15th minute after great work from Gabriel Jesus on the right.

The 23-year-old, who plays his football at Gremio, has been a revelation at this summer's tournament, scoring three goals.

Then against the run of play, Ricardo Gareca's side equalised in dramatic fashion.

All-time top goalscorer Paolo Guerrero netted just before half time when Thiago Silva was judged to have handled the ball in the penalty area.

The 35-year-old sent goalkeeper Alisson the wrong way to make it 1-1.

Moments later it was that man Gabriel Jesus who restored Brazil's lead.

Tireless work from Roberto Firmino, who ran back to the half way line to retain possession, was key as Arthur provided an inch perfect pass in the final third.
