On Friday night, Brazil will meet the winner of tomorrow’s match between Argentina and Colombia at the Maracan.
Despite Pedro Gallese’s seven-save goalkeeping display, Neymar’s magnificent individual move to set up Lucas Paquetá was the difference as Brazil went to the Copa América final with a 1-0 victory on Monday night.
The Seleço started strongly, breaking through the Peruvian defense, but Gallese came up with five stops in the first 20 minutes, including a fantastic double-save that will undoubtedly be a contender for save of the tournament.
Peru played significantly better in the second half, looking much more relaxed and unpressured, and creating far more chances in the final 45 minutes.
Alexander Callens beat Ederson to the ball but couldn’t guide his header into the empty net for La Blanquirroja around the 80th minute from a set-piece
Despite their comeback, this game will be remembered for Neymar’s incredible individual brilliance, which will almost surely earn him Man of the Match honors.
