Peru: Thousands of Peruvian fans witness crushing defeat against Brazil in Copa America

Peru, Lima
June 23, 2019 at 04:05 GMT +00:00 · Published

Peruvians gathered by the thousands in Lima to watch their team face Brazil in a crushing 5-0 defeat in the Copa America on Saturday.

Footage shows fans dressed in Peru's colours, some with Inca costumes, and a minority of Brazilian fans, reacting together to the match on a giant screen.

Saturday's match was Peru's third and final group stage match, leaving them with third place in their group, but the team could still potentially make it through to the knockout stage.

The top two third place teams from each group will qualify for the next round, so Peruvian fans will have to wait for Sunday and Monday's matches to see if they will make it through.
