Know how Peru beat Venezuela in Copa America 2015 soccer: Scores, highlights

At one time it was looking as if the Peru vs Venezuela Copa America 2015 soccer match was heading to a 0-0 draw. But an out of favor Bayern Munich star hit a great goal that ensured that Peru wins the important match.

But the result has made the situation rather very hazy. All the four teams in the group now have the same points and who will move to the next stage is a mystery that will be demystified in the coming days.

Till Claudio Pizarro hit the solitary goal to take his side t 1-0 win over Venezuela, it was looking a boring match with no team being able to score a single goal. The win here gives Peru some hope that somehow they will advance to the next stage and enter Copa America quarter-final berth. Their loss against Brazil came despite they doing everything good on the field.copa america

There is no denying the fact that the Peruvian team actually appeared set for another frustrating outing, despite playing against 10 men for over an hour after Venezuela left-back Fernando Amorebieta was sent off for stomping on Paolo Guerrero in the 29th-minute on Thursday. But 36-year-old Pizarro – a replacement for Jefferson Farfan in the starting line-up – spared Peru’s blushes with a 72nd-minute winner at Estadio Elias Figueroa Brander in Valparaiso.

Venezuela must be ruing the lost opportunities in today’s game. They were doing better than anticipated. The team that scored a single goal in all of the tournament in the year 1991 during the Copa America and mind you that goal was against itself, it seems to have come a long way. The way they have been able to hold a rampaging Peru till now shows that the team has worked seriously over the last few years and that it can be taken lightly at one’s own peril. The way they played against Columbia in their last game also proves my point. Their impressive 1-0 win over Colombia seemed to be improbable given the fact that they beat the Colombian side in almost all aspects of the game. There is no denying the fact that their efforts including discipline, high line pressing and opportunism to create goal scoring chances and the eventual goal were very impressive indeed.
