Liverpool‘s Roberto Firmino scored his first goal in the Copa America to put Brazil two goals ahead against Peru, but there was more than a touch of fortune in the goal.
Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese had an absolute nightmare as he dallied on the ball before striking it straight into Firmino’s body. The ricochet didn’t go straight into the net, but the striker was on hand to put it away after it bounced back off the post.
Brazil, the hosts, look set to make it to the knockout rounds of the Copa America. They haven’t won it since 2007.
