Everton, Gabriel Jesus, and Richardson scored for Brazil. Paolo Guerrero did it for Peru.
Brazil is the new CONMEBOL Copa América champion, after beating Peru 3-1 on Sunday, July 7, in a match played at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro.
Goals were scored by Everton (15 PT), Gabriel Jesús (48 PT) and Richardson (43 PT, penalty). For Peru, Paolo Guerrero scored a penalty (44 PT).
It was a match in which Brazil and Peru played with the same eleven starters they used in the semifinals against Argentina and Chile, respectively.
On the one hand, Gabriel Jesus, Roberto Firmino and Everton were in charge of the Canarinha attack, while Paolo Guerrero was the only striker in the Inca team.
In this way, Brazil obtained its ninth title in the CONMEBOL Copa América, achieving the title without defeats and with only one goal conceded in the six games they played. La Canarinha had not reached a Copa America final since Venezuela-2007.
Peru, meanwhile, who were returning to a final after 44 years, we’re looking for a third continental title, after those won in 1939 and 1975.
