Copa America Final − Match preview
All of the pressure’s on the Seleção, who have been booed by the home crowd at various stages of this summer’s tournament. They’ve managed to reach the final without star player Neymar, and overcame arch-rivals Argentina in the last round.
Peru, meanwhile, made it through to the finale off the back of two giant-killings. Los Incas’ surprise 3-0 thrashing of reigning champions Chile in the semi-finals came after they dumped Uruguay out of the competition on penalties at the quarter-finals stage.
Coincidentally, Chile (twice) and Uruguay were the two last countries to win the Copa America. And who won it before them? Brazil, of course.
Let’s hope we get a thrilling match tonight.
