Peru stun Chile to book final spot

Defending champions Chile were defeated 3-0 by an outstanding Peru side in the semi-final of the Copa America at the Arena do Grêmio earlier today.

Goals from Edison Flores (21′), Yoshimar Yotun (38′) and captain Paolo Guerrero (90+1′) helped Peru book a spot in the final where they are set to face Brazil at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium on Monday, having already been hammered by them 5-0 during the group stages.

Following the comprehensive win this morning, Guerrero said,”I think we all played well, we all made sacrifices. We were very intense and we deserve to be in the final.

“Now we need to rest and think of Brazil. It’ll be a very hard final.”
