Copa America 2007 Final: Brazil beat Argentina 3-0 to lift trophy


16th, July 2007


Just when you think you’ve got this game sussed… Argentina – who have been on fire throughout this tournament and were favourites to win – get whipped in the final by a Brazil side who have struggled along at times. The scoring was opened with a fine finish from Julio Baptista, who hasn’t be able to hit the proverbial cow’s backside all season at Arsenal. He latched onto what the loopy commentator in the video below describes as an ‘existential’ ball!
Brazil went 2-0 when Roberto Ayala turned the ball into his own net. And a flowing counter-attack allowed Wagner Love to play in Chelsea/Liverpool target Daniel Alves for the third goal. He slid the ball home before ruining all that good work by repeatedly kissing his biceps in celebration!
