Venezuela: Caracas goes crackers as Vinotinto hold Brazil to drawJune 19, 2019 at 05:12 (GMT) · Published
Hundreds of football fans gathered in Plaza Alfredo Sadel in eastern Caracas on Tuesday to see Venezuela take on Brazil in the Copa America.
The hosts were strong favourites for the Group A game and mustered 19 shots to the Vinotinto's six but were unable to make the breakthrough in a 0-0 stalemate.
The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) came to Venezuela's rescue not once but twice in the second half, ruling out strikes from Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus and Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho.
The result is seen as a huge scalp for the Vinotinto who have given themselves a fighting chance of progressing to the latter stages of the competition when they take on Bolivia on Saturday.
