Brazil Edge Paraguay On Penalty To Reach Copa America Semi Final

Brazil scraped into the Copa America semi-finals with a thrilling penalty shoot-out win over Paraguay on Thursday.

Frustrated for long periods in Porto Alegre, the hosts were forced to penalties after a 0-0 draw at the Arena do Gremio.

Paraguay managed to see out the final half-hour with 10 men after Fabian Balbuena was sent off for denying Roberto Firmino an obvious goalscoring opportunity.

But Brazil proved too good in the shoot-out, Alisson making one save and Gabriel Jesus converting the winner in a 4-3 success.
