Brazil opens Copa America with 3-0 win over Venezuela

كوبا أمريكا: المنتخب البرازيلي يستهل حملة الدفاع عن لقبه بفوز كبير على فنزويلا


SAO PAULO: Brazil kicked off a Copa America tournament that has been opposed by some members of its own team with a 3-0 win over Venezuela on Sunday.

Marquinhos, Neymar and Gabriel Barbosa scored in the opener at Mané Garrincha stadium in Brasilia, less than a day after several Venezuelan players tested positive for COVID-19.

South American soccer’s governing body, CONMEBOL, chose Brazil as host less than two weeks ago, despite its alarming COVID-19 figures, after Argentina and Colombia were dropped as co-hosts.

Despite his opposition to staging the tournament in his home country, Brazil captain Casemiro said the defending champions intended to retain their trophy.

“It could be a friendly, Copa America, World Cup qualifiers, we play it to win,” he said. “Venezuela had the idea of defending, they wanted a draw. But we were focused and we were aggressive in the last third of the pitch.”

Venezuela summoned 15 new players at short notice after eight squad members tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday, and the disruption showed on the field. The Seleção wasted opportunities but faced little resistance from Venezuela.

Brazil opened the scoring in the 23rd minute after a corner kick ended with Marquinhos striking from close range.

Brazil coach Tite — who also opposed holding the tournament — took Lucas Paquetá off at halftime, but kept Roberto Firmino on the bench. Instead, Everton Ribeiro went on and provided more dynamism on the right flank.

Ribeiro found Danilo on the right edge of the box, and the Brazilian was pushed to the ground. Neymar calmly scored from the spot in the 63rd to make it 2-0. He looked to the right of Venezuelan goalkeeper Joel Graterol, but took his shot to the left.

Neymar dribbled past Graterol and crossed for Barbosa to chest the ball into the empty net in the 89th. A flop at Inter Milan and Benfica, Barbosa is a hero at Brazilian club Flamengo, which wants him on the national team more often.

Tite said he’s experimenting with combinations, thinking ahead to the World Cup in Qatar next year.

“I am seeking tactical alternatives, positional alternatives. But operating on different functions,” the Brazil coach said. “The idea is not to lose our character, otherwise you break the links, the connections, you remove confidence from the athletes.”

Venezuela coach José Peseiro said he was impressed by his players overcoming so many difficulties.

“We could have done more, but I am proud of these boys. Some had their debuts for the national team. It was an important day, we wanted to dignify Copa America and the national team,” Peseiro said. “It is obvious that it (the COVID-19 outbreak) had an impact, but that doesn’t stop me from being happy for their will, their effort.”

Brazil and Venezuela are in Group B with Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Brazil and Colombia lead with three points each, but the defending champion is ahead by goal difference after Colombia’s 1-0 win against Ecuador.

The four best teams in each group advance to the knockout stage.

Brazil’s second match will be against Peru on Thursday at the Nilton Santos stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Venezuela will face Colombia on the same day at the Olimpico stadium in Goiania.

The final of the South American championship will be on July 10 at the historic Maracanã stadium in Rio, which also hosted the final two years ago when Brazil beat Peru 3-1 to win its ninth title.


برازيليا: استهل المنتخب البرازيلي لكرة القدم حملة الدفاع عن لقبه في بطولة كأس كوبا أمريكا 2021 بفوز كبير على نظيره الفنزويلي 3 / صفر على استاد “ماني جارينشيا” في العاصمة البرازيلية برازيليا، في الجولة الأولى من مباريات المجموعة الثانية بالدور الأول للبطولة.

وسجل المدافع ماركينيوس الهدف الأول في الدقيقة 23، ثم أضاف نيمار الهدف الثاني في الدقيقة 64 من ضربة جزاء، قبل أن يختتم البديل جابرييل باربوسا التسجيل في الدقيقة 89.

وسيخوض المنتخب البرازيلي مباراته الثانية أمام بيرو يوم الخميس المقبل، فيما يلعب فنزويلا أمام كولومبيا يوم الجمعة.

وفي مباراة أخرى، حقق المنتخب الكولومبي فوزا صعبا على نظيره الأكوادوري 1 / صفر، وقد سجل إدوين كاردونا هدف المباراة الوحيد في الدقيقة 42.

وكان مقررا إقامة فعاليات هذه النسخة من بطولة كأس كوبا أمريكا في منتصف العام الماضي، ولكنها تأجلت بسبب تفشي الإصابات بفيروس “كورونا”.

كما كان من المفترض إقامة البطولة بتنظيم مشترك بين كولومبيا والأرجنتين قبل أن يتقرر نقلها إلى البرازيل قبل حوالي أسبوعين، بسبب وجود احتجاجات محلية في كولومبيا وارتفاع حالات المصابين بفيروس “كورونا” في الأرجنتين.
