Large winner of its first match of the competition against Venezuela, Brazil yesterday faced Peru who entered the tournament. And unsurprisingly, the last of the 2022 World Cup qualifying class failed to shine for his first Copa América match. And once again, Neymar shone brightly. Positioned in number 10, the Paris Saint-Germain player has been in all the good moves of his team.
It was he who, from a heel, launched Alex Sandro, before the Juventus player combined with Cebolinha and Gabriel Jesus to score the opening goal in the 12th minute. Brazil was only growing, but also had to deal with a lawn in very poor condition. It was also necessary to wait until the 68th minute before seeing Neymar feast.
Neymar still very good
The international Auriverde recovered the leather near the surface before making a dribble and getting on his right foot to unleash a strike that left Gallese unresponsive (2-0). Peru did have an opportunity to reduce the score in the 79th minute, to no avail. The end of the match was finally marked by Richarlison.
The Everton striker was a decisive passer for Everton Ribeiro (3-0, 89th), before closing the scoring in added time. 4-0, 6 points taken in 2 matches, 7 goals scored, 0 conceded: Brazil is the undisputed leader of Pool B ahead of Colombia. The Cafeteros have 4 units after their draw against Venezuela (0-0). A meeting during which the main facts of the game were the 7 yellow cards and the red card (for the Colombian Luis Diaz) distributed.
