Copa On StarTimes: Peru Oust Sanchez, Chile To Set Brazil Final

The 2019 Copa América is the 46th edition of the Copa América, the international men’s association football championship organized by South America’s football ruling body CONMEBOL.

Peru managed to eliminate Alexis Sanchez’s Chile 3-0 in a Copa America semifinal epic encounter played at Arena do Gremio.

The Peruvians are through after two first half goals from Edison Flores and Yoshimar Yotun before captain Paolo Guerrero’s third to set up a much anticipated final with hosts and favourites Brazil.

The final, live on StarTimes, will be Peru’s first since 1975.

Chile were favourites going into the semis after winning the Copa in 2015 before coming victorious again in 2016 with the Copa Centenario.

Chile, even with stars like Alexis Sanchez failed to put a commanding challenge and could later miss a penalty with Eduardo Vegas fluffing with a panenka attempt.
