Brazil Bounces Back with a Resounding Win over Paraguay, Eliminating Them from Copa America 2024

Las Vegas, June 28, 2024 – In a thrilling encounter at the Allegiant Stadium, Brazil emerged victorious over Paraguay with a convincing 4-1 performance. Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior played a starring role, scoring two goals and driving Brazil’s attack with his relentless pace and skill.

Vinicius Junior’s Brace Breaks the Deadlock

After a goalless draw against Costa Rica in their opening match, Brazil was determined to make a statement against Paraguay. The Seleção started strong, and their efforts paid off in the 35th minute when Vinicius Junior latched onto a perfectly weighted pass from Lucas Paqueta and slotted the ball home.

Brazil Dominates and Extends Lead

Brazil continued to dominate the match, and Savio doubled their advantage shortly after with a well-taken goal. Vinicius Junior added his second and Brazil’s third just before half-time, capitalizing on a defensive error from Omar Alderete.

Paraguay Shows Fight, but Brazil Seals the Victory

Paraguay showed resilience in the second half, pulling a goal back through a spectacular long-range strike from Alderete. However, any hopes of a comeback were dashed when Lucas Paqueta converted a penalty in the 68th minute.

Brazil Secure a Quarterfinal Berth

This victory elevates Brazil to second place in Group D with four points. Colombia currently leads the group with a perfect record of six points and has already qualified for the quarterfinals. Costa Rica sits third with one point, while Paraguay, after two defeats, has been eliminated from further contention.

Vinicius Junior’s Resurgence

Vinicius Junior’s performance was particularly notable. After a subdued outing in the previous game, he was a constant threat to the Paraguayan defense. His goalscoring prowess and ability to create chances were crucial to Brazil’s triumph.

Paraguay Eliminated Despite Brave Effort

Paraguay fought valiantly but ultimately succumbed to a superior Brazilian team. They failed to score from any of their seven shots on target, while Brazil converted four of their five.

Quarterfinal Prospects

Brazil will face group leaders Colombia in California on Tuesday, where a draw would be sufficient to secure qualification for the quarterfinals. Costa Rica will face Paraguay in Texas in the other Group D fixture.
