After thrilling and sensational winning by the Greek focusing from Euro 2004 switches to Peru, where 41st Copa America kicks off and defending champion Colombia has some how managed to win against Venezuela from a spot kick.

Three times winner Brazil has selected the team from their reserve bench keeping in the mind for qualifying matches of World cup.

It would be a very crucial tournament for Argentina and for their coach Marcelo. Recently they lost to Brazil and drew to Paraguay. They will be with their full strength in Peru.

If the young Brazilian use the opportunity to prove their ability that will be first time winning the Copa America out side the home.

Brazil hardly managed the win against Chile. And Chile had paid the price for misusing the spot kick.

Paraguay beat Costa Rica through penalty kick.

So far Argentina did well.

Yes you are right. The present Copa America has been redesigned in 1957, and before then it was National Teams Competition of South American Football Confederation. Perhaps due to this demarcation Statistics are varying.

Brazil made easy over Costa Rica, 4 - 1.


Thank you.

Brazil seem to be in pretty good shape even without their key players. It should be a good final.

Argentina is in the final of CA after 11 years, since 1993 and jointly holding the highest titleholder, 14 times, with Uruguay. This time they would try to stand alone with 15 title and young Bra artists would try to make the thing in other way definitely so there would be a classic battle.

Present champion Colombia satisfied with secured 4th place in CA 2004 as they lost 1-2 to Uruguay and eventually Uruguay secured 3rd.

Today is the deciding match between Brazil and Argentina. To me this is Brazilian moment.

World champions Brazil set up a Copa America final against arch-rivals Argentina by beating Uruguay on penalties following a 1-1 draw in their semifinal on Wednesday. Uruguay dominated the first half and stunned the world champions by taking a 22-minute lead with a Marcelo Sosa header. Brazil forward Adriano equalised two minutes into the second half with his sixth goal of the tournament in a game witnessed by a disappointing crowd of around 15,000, local interest having diminished after host Peru's quarter-finals exit. Brazil, who have reached the final despite resting top players such as Ronaldo and Ronaldinho, then converted all five of their penalties while goalkeeper Julio Cesar saved Vicente Sanchez's fourth attempt for Uruguay.

Uruguay made a lively start and nearly went ahead in the second minute when Dario Silva was given a clear run on goal but shot straight at goalkeeper Julio Cesar. Silva was again the culprit 11 minutes later when he contrived to miss an open goal from point-blank range, somehow turning Carlos Diogo's header onto the crossbar when it seemed impossible to miss. Uruguay, however, took the lead when Javier Delgado floated over a free kick from the left and midfielder Sosa, known as "The Duck", stooped to head the ball past Julio Cesar. Sosa and Delgado both came close to increasing Uruguay's lead before halftime, the latter seeing his swerving free kick turned away by Julio Cesar.

Uruguay goalkeeper Sebastian Viera made two good first half saves, punching over Kleberson's drive early on and then turning away a cunning Edu chip in injury time. Brazil emerged in a different frame of mind after halftime and levelled almost straight away when Alex set Luis Fabiano away on the right and his low shot was turned in from close range by Adriano. The scorer threatened with two left-foot shots in the next three minutes as Brazil threatened to take control. The game lost momentum before bursting back into life in the final five minutes, when Luis Fabiano was agonisingly close for Brazil and Maicon was denied by Viera. At the end, Silva had another good chance but his shot was blocked by Juan. :great:

There is only one team in the world, which can afford the luxury of resting high profile players such as Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Kaka and Roberto Carlos and still win a major tournament. Reuter news.

Congratulation Brazil.
