Group A survivors Peru shocked defending champions Chile in the last semifinal match of Copa America 2019. Peru eased past the La Roja squad with an incredible margin of 3-0 at Arena do Gremio on Wednesday. The credit of Peru’s successful win squad goes to attacking midfielders Edison Flores, Yoshimar Yotun and star forward Paolo Guerrero who drove their squad to the grand finale of Copa America. However, it was not really expected from Peru that they would win this game against two-time Copa America Champions Chile after their drastic performance in last group stage encounter. But the Los Incas sealed everybody’s mouth with their exceptional performance in semis.
At the beginning of the game, both the teams tried hard to maintain pressure on each other but none of them could find the net. It was talented midfielder Edison Flores who got the opportunity first to open the account for his side at the 21st minute with the assistance of teammate André Carrillo.
