Copa America: Brazil 4-1 Paraguay

The Copa América continued on Friday night, as Brazil handled Paraguay in Group D, 4-1.

Iran PressAmerica: Vinícius Júnior scored two first-half goals to lead Brazil to a 4-1 victory over Paraguay on Friday night and put itself in a position to advance out of Group D in the Copa América.

Sávio also scored a first-half goal for Brazil and Lucas Paquetá scored on a penalty kick in the second half. Omar Alderete scored Paraguay's goal.

There were plenty of tense moments with five yellow cards and a red-handed out. Andrés Cubas was sent off for a red card in the 81st minute, forcing Paraguay to play the last part of the match down a man. 

The victory was quite a response for the Seleção, who opened the tournament Tuesday with a scoreless draw against Costa Rica despite outshooting their opponent 18-2. It was also a significant response from Vinícius after he was criticized following his performance against Costa Rica for failing to reproduce his Real Madrid form for his country.
