Brazil Wins Copa America Title

Brazil are the new champions of South America, after they defeated Peru 3-1 to win its first Copa America title since 2007 on Sunday.

Everton’s opener for Brazil, was equalised a minute before half-time when Paolo Guerrero scored from the penalty spot after Thiago Silva handled the ball. The goal was the first Brazil had conceded in six games in the Copa América, but they retook the lead moments later after a well-worked move from midfield. Gabriel Jesus scored a decisive goal after the penalty, and Richarlison’s late spot-kick sealed Brazil’s spot as winners of the South American title for the ninth time.

It was Brazil’s first major title since they won the Copa América in 2007 and the first for their coach Tite, who took charge of the national team three years ago. Peru has not won the tournament since 1975.
