Brazil into Copa America final after tough Peru test

Brazil were made to work as they reached the Copa America final with a 1-0 win against Peru on Monday night in Rio.

Lucas Paqueta scored the only goal of the game as he converted Neymar’s cutback from close range after fine work from the forward in the box. The beautifully crafted cross by Neymar after evading from 2 defenders gave Paqueta an open shot at goal.

Brazil will now await the winner of Tuesday’s match between Argentina and Colombia in the other semifinal to determine who they will face in the final at the Maracana.

Brazil who have never lost a Copa America on home soil and have won every match so far in this year’s edition, will seek its 10th title in the South American championship.
