PORTO ALEGRE https://www.thetopsoccer.com/usa/paul-arriola-jersey , Brazil (AP) — After being counted out by most, Peru pulled off a stunning Copa América comeback.Two weeks after a demoralizing 5-0 loss to Brazil that left the team on the verge of a first-round elimination, Peru got past two-time defending champion Chile 3-0 on Wednesday to make it to the continental final for the first time since 1975.Peru had already stunned title-favorite Uruguay in the quarterfinals after advancing as one of the two best third-place finishers from the three groups, and now it will get a rematch against host Brazil in Sunday’s final at the Maracanã Stadium.“We are a team that knows how to overcome adversities,” Peru coach Ricardo Gareca said. “That’s something very unique to our team. That loss (against Brazil) would hurt any team, but we were able to recover from it. We deserve a lot of credit for that.”Chile was trying to become the first team to win three straight Copa América titles since Argentina in the 1940s, but now will play the third-place match against the Argentines on Saturday in a repeat of the last two finals.“We entered the match already thinking about the final and that’s how we allowed Peru to surprise us,” Chile coach Reinaldo Rueda said. “We didn’t show the attitude and aggressiveness from the previous matches.”Chile’s loss to longtime rival Peru will add pressure on Rueda, a Colombian who had been criticized since he took over the squad at the beginning of last year. The result will also raise further questions about its so-called golden generation, which failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.The veterans of Chile’s recent triumphs Zack Steffen Jersey , including Eduardo Vargas, Arturo Vidal and Alexis Sánchez, had subpar performances at the Arena Grêmio in Porto Alegre.Despite a team without the same quality as Chile, it was Peru that got off to a good start and dominated the match early on.“When this team wants something, it works hard and gets it,” Peru striker Paolo Guerrero said. “We deserved to make it to the final. We were fully focused from the start.”Edinson Flores opened the scoring with a shot from inside the area in the 21st minute and Yoshimar Yotún added to the lead in the 38th with a strike into the open net after Chile goalkeeper Gabriel Arias left the area to try to stop a counterattack.Guerrero sealed the victory in a breakaway in stoppage time to become the Copa América’s all-time leading scorer among active players with 13 goals.Chile’s Eduardo Vargas could have matched Guerrero when his team was awarded a penalty kick in the final seconds, but he had his weak shot from the spot saved by Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese.Gallese had a great performance to stop Chile’s attack, which faltered during most of the match despite creating most of the scoring chances.The Peruvian goalkeeper made an embarrassing mistake in the rout against Brazil, but had already saved penalty kicks by Uruguay’s Luis Suárez and Brazil’s Gabriel Jesus.Peru, which last year made its first World Cup appearance in 36 years Cheap Soccer Jerseys , was playing in the semifinals for the third time in the last four Copa Américas.It had lost seven of its last eight competitive matches against Chile, including in the semifinals of the Copa América in 2015.The rivalry between Chile and Peru dates to the 19th Century. The nations fought in the War of the Pacific from 1879-84, with Chile coming out victorious against a Peru-Bolivia alliance and taking over some key land with access to the Pacific Ocean. MADRID (AP) — A 16-year-old forward born in Guinea-Bissau has become the next promising soccer star in Spain.Ansu Fati, who made his debut with Barcelona this season, has quickly attracted everyone’s attention and is already touted by many as the next big thing for the Spanish national team.Fati played his first match with Spain’s under-21 squad on Tuesday and the next day shared front-page headlines with the senior squad, which had sealed its place in the 2020 European Championship on the same night.“I’ll never forget this moment,” said Fati, who recently gained his Spanish citizenship. “I truly enjoyed it.”There is already talk he could be part of the main Spain squad at Euro 2020, or at least make it to the Olympic team for the Tokyo Games.“It’s extraordinary what has been happening to this kid at this age,” Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said. “We are all thrilled with him.”The Spanish soccer federation moved quickly to make sure Fati was eligible to play for Spain following his rapid rise with the Catalan club. He has been living in Spain since a young age but reportedly also could have chosen to play for Portugal.Fati played his first professional match less than two months ago Cheap AC Milan Soccer Shirts , coming off the bench in Barcelona’s 5-2 victory over Real Betis in the Spanish league. In his following game, Fati became the club’s youngest player to score in the Spanish league, and then was also the youngest to score at Camp Nou. Fati later played in the Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund, becoming Barcelona’s youngest player to appear in a UEFA competition.Fati has racked up nearly 240 minutes in six appearances with the Catalan club so far, most of them coming off the bench.He was brought up from Barcelona’s academy to the main team after a wave of injuries to players in the senior squad at the beginning of the season, including Lionel Messi.“Ansu Fati caught my attention the first time I saw him practicing,” Messi said. “But this takes time, he is only 16 and shouldn’t be taking on the responsibility that people want him to have. He has the potential to become a very important player, but it takes time and he needs help.”Fati has great skills and moves that make him especially dangerous in one-on-one situations. The speedy forward has impressed the most with his maturity on the field, though Cheap Arsenal Soccer Jerseys , not showing signs he has been affected by the pressure to which he has been exposed to since starting to play professionally.Fati, whose full name is Anssumane Fati Vieira, moved to Spain with his family at an early age and joined Barcelona’s academy when he was 10. There he was a teammate of Japanese teenager Takefusa Kubo, who is playing for Mallorca on a loan from Real Madrid.Fati played only about 10 minutes off the bench in Spain’s 2-0 win over Montenegro in qualifying for the 2021 Under-21 European Championship on Tuesday, but it was enough for him to get a glimpse of what could lie ahead.“It’s time to keep working so I can keep having more opportunities,” he said on Instagram, where he has already gained nearly 1.8 million followers in the few months since his professional debut.
