Brazil is the new Champion of America
The Brazilian team won yesterday Peru and was consecrated with the new king of America.
Brazil was always better than Peru that could not resist the zero in its arc for a long time. The revelation player of Brazil Everton opened the score with a goal.
Peru managed to draw after the penalty executed by the Peruvian idol Paolo Guerrero who has scored 14 goals in the entire history of the Copa America and was three goals from the record shared by the Brazilian Zizinho and the Argentine Norberto Mendez.
But the tie lasted little to the Peruvian team and at the end of the first half Gabriel Jesus (who then would be sent off) made a great goal, his second in the cup.
In the second half Brazil had several chances but it wasted them.
Peru with a player of more was enlarged and was close to tie in some play but failed.
Near the end of the game a defender made a controversial Everton penalty. Richarlisson kicked it in an unbeatable way for goalkeeper Pedro Gallese, who dived well but could not stop it. Goal and 3 to 1.
From that moment Brazil felt champion, something came true minutes later with the end of the Party.
Brazil Champion !!!!! And like Uruguay, they are the only countries that never lost an America Cup at home. This is the fifth time that Brazil is champion at home and the ninth in total.
In the individual awards all prizes went to Brazilian players.
Among the winners, Gremio forward Porto Alegre Everton was the scorer (and for many the best) of the Copa America.
