Gabriel Jesus

Gabriel Jesus excelled with a goal and an assist – before later being sent off – as Brazil were crowned Copa America champions with a 3-1 victory over Peru.

It was an eventful game at the Maracana, and here we run the rule over every player.

BRAZIL

Alisson 6. Went the wrong way for Guerrero’s penalty and just had one routine save to make in the second half.

Alves 6. A relatively restrained performance by the skipper’s usual high-octane standards, but he was focused and committed.

Marquinhos 8. Very calm and composed in the heart of defence, doing everything necessary to keep Peru at bay.

Silva 6. Handled to concede a penalty for Peru’s equaliser, but made amends with a key challenge to deny a clear chance.

Sandro 7. Picked his moments to attack and nearly created a goal for Firmino, and concentrated well on defensive matters.

Casemiro 6. Kept things simple in front of the back four, defending with discipline and taking no risks with possession.

Arthur 7. Gave his team width by regularly switching play with intelligence and did superbly to set up Jesus’s goal.

Jesus 8. Created the opening goal with some brilliant skill and tucked away the second with a fine finish, before being harshly sent off.

Coutinho 6. Stabbed a first half snapshot just wide and again came close with a powerful drive just after the break.

Everton 8. Took the opener really well on the half-volley, and made some scintillating bursts including one to win a late penalty.

Firmino 6. Was off target with a couple of decent chances but regained possession to spark the second goal. Worked tirelessly.

SUBSTITUTES

Richarlison 6. Introduced by Tite as a reaction to Jesus’s red card, and wrapped up the victory with a late penalty.

Militao 6. A defensive-minded change as Brazil protected their lead in the latter stages, he did a sensible job.

Allan. Last gasp sub, he didn’t get a kick but was able to celebrate being on the pitch when Brazil became champions.

PERU

Gallese 6. Couldn’t repeat his semi-final heroics, unable to do anything to keep out any of Brazil’s three goals.

Advincula 5. Totally out of position for the opening goal and was given a really tough time by the trickery and pace of Everton.

Zambrano 5. Couldn’t quite get to Jesus in time to deny the second goal, and brought down Everton to concede a late penalty.

Abram 6. Worked hard in defence and showed good positional awareness but struggled for pace at times.

Truaco 7. Showed some deft touches on the ball, and nearly grabbed a second equaliser with a low angled shot.

Yotun 5. Carelessly gave the ball away in the buildup to Brazil’s second goal, and was the first man replaced.

Tapia 6. Tried his luck from distance early on and played his part in keeping Peru competitive until near the end.

Carillo 5. Buzzed from flank to flank trying to create danger, but faded badly from the game in the second half.

Cueva 7. Blasted a second minute free kick just wide, won the penalty for Peru’s leveller and always wanted possession.

Flores 6. Involved in the buildup to the penalty and came within inches of making it 2-2 with a thunderous long-range shot.

Guerrero 6. Sharp in his link play during Peru’s fast start and calmly brought his team level from the spot.

SUBSTITUTES

Ruidiaz 5. Came on for the last 15 minutes but Brazil were well in control by that stage.

Goncales 5. Another late change by Peru coach Gareca, but he was unable to get into the game as Brazil eased home.

Polo 5. The last Peruvian substitute, he was only given five minutes to make a difference and that proved insufficient.
