Neymar stars as Brazil reach Copa America final

Lucas Paqueta sent defending champions Brazil into the Copa America final with a first-half winner against Peru at the Nilton Santos Stadium.

Neymar beat three defenders on the left before crossing for Paqueta to guide home the semi-final’s only goal.

Brazil, who have won the Copa America every time they hosted the tournament, face either Argentina or Colombia in Saturday’s final at the Maracana.

“I want Argentina, I am cheering them on,” Neymar said.

Paris St-Germain forward Neymar was a bright spark for Brazil as they again edged Peru, the side their beat in the 2019 final to lift the trophy for the ninth time.
