Copa America - Brazil Beat Peru 3-1 To Win Copa America In A Pulsating Display Which Saw Jesus Sent Off - Video Highlights

Even though Brazil won the day, but Gabriel Jesus was the subject of the matter. He easily could have been the man of the match because he scored one goal and assisted another, but he was sent off controversially, thanks to the Video Assisted Referee (VAR) which he pushed though when he was going off the pitch as he was in tears, as Brazil won a first Copa America title in 12 years, beating Peru 3-1.

The Manchester City forward Jesus set up Everton to volley in the opener before scoring the decisive second.Paolo Guerrero had briefly given Peru hope when he equalised from the penalty spot minutes before Jesus struck.

Jesus was shown a second yellow with 20 minutes left but Richarlison's late penalty ensured that Brazil came out victorious. 

The VAR monitor bore the brunt of Gabriel Jesus's anger when he was sent off. This is the second time Jesus was sent off in his entire football career and 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.

The victory also maintained their record of winning the Copa America every time they have hosted it.
