Copa America 2021:
Peru 2- Colombia 1; First win for Ricardo Gareca team

Peru beat Colombia 2-1 in Goiania on Sunday in its second match at Copa America.

Iran PressAmerica: Colombia had the bulk of possession but lacked quality in the final third, while Peru were opportunistic with Sergio Pena's 17th-minute opener and offered a slice of fortune with Yerry Mina's own goal in the 64th minute.

La Tricolor, who had collected four points from their opening two group games and not conceded a goal, had leveled via Miguel Borja's penalty eight minutes into the second half.

Peru were routed 4-0 by defending champions Brazil in their opener but bounced back to move into the third spot in the five-team Group B, with four nations advancing.

The 2021 Copa America, the 47th edition of the Copa America, is being held without public attendance in Brazil.
