Jesus both the hero and villain as Brazil win Copa America

CARL DE SOUZA / AFP

Brazil claimed their first Copa America title in 12 years after beating Peru 3-1 in the final in Rio de Janeiro.

It was a dramatic game for Gabriel Jesus, who set up Everton for the opening goal and scored the second for the tournament hosts on the stroke of half-time before being sent-off in the second half.

The Man City forward didn't take too well to being shown the red card for a second bookable offence, with the VAR monitor on pitchside bearing the brunt of his frustration.

There were also a couple of penalties in the match, with Paolo Guerrero briefly levelling matters for Peru in the 44th minute and Richarlison wrapping things up for Brazil from the spot late on.
