No Neymar? No problem! Brazil hosted Peru in the Maracana Stadium this Sunday in the Copa America Final and did not disappoint. The Selecao ended up defeating the Peruvians 3-1 with goals from Everton, Gabriel Jesus, and Richarlison. Paolo Guerrero discounted for Peru.

The match was way different than the infamous 5-0 Brazilian win back in the Group Stages. Peru came prepared this time. They were aware that an early slip could put everything on the verge of failure. And as much as the Peruvians fought to avoid conceding goals, it came under 15 minutes.

Captain Daniel Alves picked out Gabriel Jesus, as the Brazilian striker rounded Miguel Trauco down the right, and low-crossed it to unmarked Everton tap into the net. 1-0 Brazil.

Differently, from the 5-0, Peru did not desperate themselves though. After conceding the opening goal, the Peruvians went on looking for the equalizer. It came in at 44, as Thiago Silva intercepted a ball inside the area using his arm. After a long VAR check, the referee confirmed the penalty to Peru, which was taken by Guerrero, who slotted home past Alisson Becker. 1-1.

It did not last as much as the visitors would like to though. 4 minutes later, still in the first half, Firmino recovered the ball in the attacking field, passed it to Arthur, who drove forward, and let Jesus in front of goalkeeper Pedro Gallese, as he slotted home. 2-1 Brazil as the Maracana erupted.

After the break, Peru came back up to spoil the Brazilian party. Guerrero and Trauco had good chances to equalize, but Alisson kept them out. Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino also had everything to kill the game off, but they missed it. Things got even worse for Brazil, Jesus was sent off due to a second yellow. Everyone thought that Peru would equalize and eventually turn things around.

As time went on, the Brazilian defense could hold Peru on, and at 90 minutes, Everton sped up in a counter-attack got into the box, and was fouled by a Peruvian defender. Penalty to Brazil that was converted by Richarlison. 3-1 Brazil.

It was Brazil’s 9th Copa America in history. The Selecao also maintain their hegemony when it comes to domestic Copa Americas, as they always won it when they hosted the competition. We also need to congratulate Peru, as they got to the final beating the back-to-back Champions, Chile, and Uruguay. Congratulations to both national teams!

Published

Sevilla keep their 100% in the pre-season friendlies as they beat Liverpool 2-1 on Sunday night. Nolito and Alejandro Pozo scored for the Spaniards in the match held in Boston, as Origi cashed for the Reds. Jurgen Klopp sent a mixed-up team to the pitch, as he doesn’t have their front-three nor his goalkeeper available.

Liverpool started the game with Lonergan, Van Dijk, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Philips, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Wilson, Chamberlain, Woodburn, and Origi. Sevilla took to the field Sergio Rico, Daniel Carrico, Diego Carlos, Reguilon, Jesus Navas, Banega, Fernando, Ocampos, Joan Jordan, Nolito, and De Jong.

With 37 minutes on the clock, Sevilla opened the scoring: Nolito received down the left and slotted a wonderful goal straight into Lonergan’s top corner. 1-0 Sevilla.

Seemed like the first half would end up like this, but Origi capitalized on a loose ball to level the match. 1-1 with 44 minutes on the clock.

Sevilla even lost Joris Gnagnon for a red card after a disgusting foul on Liverpool’s Larouci. When everyone thought the game was faded to this 1-1, 10-man Sevilla bright as at 90 minutes, Munir made a good move on the left and rolled in the middle for the young Pozo. He controlled the ball, rounded goalkeeper Mignolet and fired home into the empty nets. 2-1 Sevilla.

This was the fourth friendly played by Sevilla in the pre-season. And the fourth victory. The Spaniard had beaten Simba (Tanzania) by 5-4, Reading by 2-1 and Dallas by 3-1. The club has three more scheduled games: against Hoffenheim and Granada.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have also reached four friendlies played in that pre-season. The Reds defeated Tranmere Rovers 6-0 and Bradford City 3-1 but got beaten by Borussia Dortmund on Friday, 3-2. The Reds now have games against Sporting, Napoli, and Lyon.

Anthological! Thus should be defined the Harry Kane’s goal on Sunday morning in Singapore, which guaranteed the 3-2 Spurs triumph against Juventus in the International Champions Cup. After the 2-2 draw was kept until the last minutes, the English striker surprised the goalkeeper Szczesny and brought the stadium to madness! Before Kane’s masterpiece, Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura, Gonzalo Higuain, and Cristiano Ronaldo scored.

We can say that the game was friendly only on paper. With much intensity, Tottenham dominated the first half and built the advantage through Lamela, who capitalized on a rebounded ball by Buffon.

The Spurs were better during the first half, but it seemed like the London club did not come back to the pitch up to score more goals. Smart Maurizio Sarri introduced Higuain as Juventus quickly fired back. With 15 minutes into the second half, the Italians completed the comeback through Higuain himself, and the Portuguese star CR7.

Pochettino introduced Lucas Moura, as the Brazilian showed opportunism to leave everything the same. 2-2.

When everything seemed solved, Kane took out the unpredictable from the hat and wrapped up the game in an absurd goal from the midfield.

Lucas won the ball in his defensive half and played with Kane, who, in a mad-moment, took the risk to attempt from down the midfield. The ball made all the way into the net, looping over Szczesny, who even tried to save it, but he wasn’t really expecting that. None of us were, to be honest. 3-2 Tottenham.

After losing to the Spurs, Juventus will face Inter Milan next Wednesday and Atletico Madrid on August 10.

Meanwhile, the Spurs have three more scheduled preseason appointments. For the International Champions Cup, Tottenham will take Manchester United and Inter Milan. Between the two games, Pochettino leads the team against Real Madrid on 30 July in another friendly tournament.

As expected, the two teams started out with a lot of reserves in the field and changed all the players in the second half.

This was Liverpool’s third friendly, as they had beaten Tranmere Rovers 6-0 and then beat Bradford City 3-1 before traveling to the United States.

Borussia got their second win in the preseason two days after beating American side Seattle Sounders 3-1.

So let’s get into the game. Under the hot weather at Indiana, manager Jurgen Klopp’s former club Borussia opened the scoring in just three minutes into the game, with the Spanish Paco Alcacer taking advantage of poor defense from the English defense.

At 34, the Brazilian Fabinho played with Ryan Kent, who did the light-cut and left Harry Wilson in conditions to level the game. 1-1.

In the second half, Borussia again was quick to return to the lead with a goal scored by Thomas Delaney with 53 on the clock.

Shortly after, at 58, Jacob Larsen expanded to the German team.

Liverpool even responded at 75, as captain Jordan Henderson let Rhian Brewster take the Penalty which he scored, but it wasn’t enough to equalize it. 3-2 Dortmund.
