FT: BRAZIL 4-0 PERU
Brazil picked up another dominant win in the Copa America against Peru at the Olympic Stadium.
The Selecao took the lead after only 12 minutes as Neymar delivered a cross from the left flank that was headed out by Ricardo Gareca’s defence.
But Gabriel Jesus got the ball on the right flank and passed it back to the penalty area where Alex Sandro was forgotten and fired it to the back of the net.
Brazil thought they would double their lead from the penalty spot on 61 minutes but the referee checked with VAR and ruled that Neymar fell on his own while under pressure by Renato Tapia.
But that didn’t matter as the Paris Saint-Germain superstar got his goal anyway in the 68th minute with a stunning long-range shot.
Tite’s men made it three just a minute before full-time when Neymar passed to Richarlison on his left and the Everton star delivered a through ball to the penalty area where Everton Ribeiro stood and finished off with a beautiful shot!
And Richarlison sealed another big win in the third minute of stoppage time when Neymar produced another incredible through ball to Roberto Firmino but the Liverpool star was denied by Pedro Gallese.
Richarlison then fired a shot of his own but it was blocked by a defender, however the Everton ace tried again and this time he hit the net
