Brazil 1-0 Peru: Lucas Paqueta strike seal Copa America final for Selecao

Brazil advance to the Copa America final courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Peru in their semi-final clash at the Estadio Nilton Santos.

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.

Ricardo Gareca’s men put the Selecao under pressure in the second half, but lacked the clinical edge to find an equaliser.

Tite’s side can now dream of back-to-back Copa America crowns when they play at the Maracana on July 10.

Brazil will face either Colombia or Argentina in the Copa America final at the Maracana on July 10. Peru are next in action against Uruguay in their World Cup qualifying campaign on September 1.
