Colombia VS Peru LIVE Football Match Score July 10/7/2021
It’s Peru vs. Colombia in the 2021 Copa America 3rd Place match, and while the Copa America trophy is out of the question, cementing a 3rd place finish is still a chance for glory in one of the biggest international soccer contests in the world. The match will be broadcast on FS2 and TUDN at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, July 9 (7/9/2021), and can be streamed live on fuboTV, Sling and other live TV streaming services.
In the semifinals, Peru fell 0-1 to defending champion Brazil after a goal from Lucas Paqueta at 35 minutes. Colombia held Argentina to a 1-1 draw, but fell 3-2 on penalties. Peru got off to a disappointing start in the group stage, as they were thrashed 4-0 by pre-tournament favourites Brazil, but they would quickly bounce back to achieve a high finish.
A Sergio Pena finish and a Yerry Mina own goal saw them pick up an impressive 2-1 win over Colombia, and they finished with a 2-2 draw with Ecuador and a 1-0 victory against Venezuela, as Andre Carrillo netted the only goal of the game early in the second half.
That commendable group campaign saw Ricardo Gareca’s men finish in second spot in Group B, with their seven points only topped by Brazil.
As a result, Los Incas were drawn against Paraguay, who came third in the opposite group, in the quarter-finals, and a dramatic game followed as they played out a 3-3 draw in Goiania.
Paraguay took an early lead through Gustavo Gomez, but a Gomez own goal and goals from Gianluca Lapadula and Yoshimar Yotun gave Peru a 3-2 lead in the dying minutes, until Gabriel Avalos netted a late equaliser to take the tie to a penalty shootout.
Nonetheless, Gareca’s men would prevail as Miguel Trauco scored the winning penalty in sudden death after Pedro Gallese had denied Alberto Espinola, booking them a difficult clash with Brazil in the semi-finals.
In a rerun of the 2019 Copa America final, Brazil again came out on top, knocking Peru out of the tournament with a 1-0 win thanks to Lucas Paqueta’s first-half goal, leaving Los Incas to battle for third place this year.
