Brazil defeats Paraguay in Copa America quarter final

Brazil defeated Paraguay in the Copa America quarterly final in Porto Alegre after a closely fought match which saw the Brazilian team winning the match 4-3 via penalty shots.

Despite the goalless match in 90 minutes, the game was nothing short of excitement as Paraguayan Fabian Balbuena was red carded in the second half, forcing the team to battle on with 10 men.

The Brazilians were closest to taking the lead when Willian Borges da Silva’s shot hit the goal post.

The match was indeed disappointing for Paraguay as it previously triumphed in penalties during the Copa edition in 2011 and 2015.
