It is the ninth time Brazil have won the Copa America and is their first tournament
success since winning a gold medal at the 2016 Olympics.

Gabriel Jesus scored once, assisted another goal, was sent off and
pushed the VAR monitor as Brazil won a first Copa America title in 12 years,
beating Peru 3-1.

Jesus set up Everton to volley in the opener before scoring the second.

Paolo had briefly given Peru hope when he equalized from the penalty spot minutes AFTER Jesus struck.

Jesus was shown a second yellow with 20 minutes remaining but Richarlison’s late penalty sealed the win.

The victory provided a huge relief for Jesus, who was in tears when he was sent off, kicking a water bottle and then pushed the VAR monitor as he left the pitch
