While the focus will be on another Brazil victory, this was not as easy as they would have liked it to be.

Indeed, better teams would have performed far worse than Peru did in this game. They deserve credit for their performance.

At times they run Brazil ragged, pressing them hard and putting the Brazilian defence under severe pressure. There was certainly a tension in the stadium because of it.

If they had a little more quality at their disposal, this scoreline would have been very different.
