Peru ends Chile's Copa América

Peru shocks South American football by knocking Chile out of the Copa America

July 3, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
Los Incas will try to earn some payback against Brazil in their first title clash in this competition in over 40 years.

Just when no one thought Peru could stand a chance to battle for the Copa América title, the Peruvian crew gave their best performance of the competition and knocked out the defending champions.

Ricardo Gareca's crew scored a couple of first half goals before a furious reaction by the back-to-back champions. When Chile seemed to be getting closer to scoring a goal, a massive display by Peru concluded with a last-gasp goal by Paolo Guerrero.

With this result, Peru will return to a Copa América final after 44 years. Under Ricardo Gareca, Peru's football has made its way to the spotlight after years in the shadows, which include a third-place finish in the 2015 Copa América and the team's return to the FIFA World Cup after a 36-year absence.

Here are a few facts to keep track of:

Despite winning the tournament's title twice, this will only be Peru's second appearance in a Copa America final. Their first title came when the competition had a league format, and their last appearance in the final saw them beat Colombia to win their second trophy, back in 1975.
