We can win this. Brazil sent a very weak squad to the Copa America and while we sent in a weaker squad as well, we're experimenting. Dunga could be experimenting as well, but Neymar not being in the squad had to do with him going to the Olympics and Douglas Costa is injured. So I'm not really worried here. I can't make a prediction until I see the other matches though.

Brazil looks really poor under Dunga.

Brazil is really a mess with Dunga but it will be a good fight since with the partial results of Ecuador and Haiti until now the classification bomb is coming fully to this match. I think things are more favorable to Brazil on the moment but Brazil also has a big talent to disappoint so...

Wow, Peru score with the longest decision taken by a referee I've ever seen - and he got it wrong!! The scorer punched the ball into the net and they missed it!! :lol:

Well done to the country that's almost as big as Leicester City.

The match was head to head. Brazil tried hard to get the goal until the end but Peru blocked us very well despite not attacking. We didn't play that better than Peru to say they didn't deserve the classification but it being with a hand goal (the ref was so bad) feels so unfair 'cause the tie was our and like this the place to next phase too.

Anyway I don't think it's a shame to Brazil. It's the first time Dunga tried a new formation that pleased us brazilian but of course they have to play more together to improve and we still have our limitations. The team fought hard and was keeping the tie to classificate so it's a pity we lost it in an injustice. Well, what is done is done. Who knows now this precocious elimination doesn't bring something good as Dunga's firing.

And thats it, Brazil are out!!! Lib is going to be delighted! Sorry Voltage, that was horrible!
Yeah, very unfair but there's countless moments way worse than this where interloper hands saved a team (Argentina at 1986 World Cup because of Maradona's hands, Uruguay índirectly at 2010 World Cup because of Suáres hands, and Brazil and other are in this middle too) and can't blame Peru's luck so cheering for them to go far and make it worth the chance they received.
