RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - (AP) Brazil didn’t need Neymar to win another Copa América title at home. With its injured star watching from the stands at a packed Maracanã Stadium on Sunday, Brazil beat Peru 3-1 to win its first South American title since 2007.
It was Neymar’s replacement, Everton, who led the team to victory, scoring a goal and setting up another one to give Brazil its ninth Copa América trophy, and fifth at home.
Gabriel Jesus and Richarlison also scored for Brazil, which has won the title every time it hosted the tournament . . .
