Brazil’s first big victory after Copa America 2017 and first for coach Tite: Jesus, “Star of the match” Brazil’s title triumph was the first big one for the team after the Copa America 2017 and also the first one for the newly appointed coach Tite who in June 2016 replaced Dunga. This was a crucial match too, for the team had been missing Neymar, who was injured in due course of the Tournament. However, the team got themselves victory and Gabrielle Jesus was definitely and vividly the star of the match.
The hosts took a lead within the first 15 minutes when Jesus showed some amazing skills where the team fooled the defenders and Everton who was nearly invisible converted the shot into a goal. The team Peru scored an equalizer after Paolo Guerrero which was a penalty. The midfield did take another move which helped Brazil regain their lead and was due to the amazing skills of Firmino, Arthur and Jesus. Jesus brilliantly managed to strike the ball into the goal post. However, Peru did get a lifeline when in the second -half Jesus was sent off and was substituted by Zambrano for a very bad tackle.
But Richardson scored an amazing hit and Brazil won the Copa America final with a lead of 3-0. This match was special and Jesus was vividly the star of the match. It was more crucial because Brazil missed Neymar. After the match, Peru coach Garcia said. “It was fair that Brazil won. We had our momentum but the second goal. They took advantage of their opportunities.We came here hoping to win but they were very effective, but looking beyond the pain of the defeat, I think we are on the right path, that is the feeling that I have.” The star player Jesus said,” I want to apologize, I could have avoided it and I also need to grow up a lot.”
