Rio de Janeiro, Jun 17 (EFE).- Brazil thrashed Peru 4-0 with goals by Alex Sandro, Neymar, Everton Ribeiro and Richarlison on matchday two of Copa America 2021 Group B at Nilton Santos Olympic Stadium in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday.

The Canarinha have been unstoppable in the tournament with six points after two matches, while the Blanquirroja fell to the bottom of the group after their first-game loss.

Sandro gave his team a 1-0 lead early in the first half of the game between the two 2019 Copa America finalists, while Neymar received the ball from Fred and beat goalkeeper Pedro Gallese with a low crossed shot to score the second goal in the 68th minute.

But Brazil had more to offer as Everton Ribeiro took the score to 3-0 in the 89th minute and Richarlison scored the final goal in the 93rd.

Matchday three of Group B on Sunday will see Venezuela play Ecuador and Colombia face Peru, while the host team will rest. EFE
