Video: Brazil crash out of Copa America with penalty shootout horror show
Brazil were knocked out of the Copa America by Paraguay last night after perhaps the worst set of penalties ever to be taken by an international team in a shootout.
Despite Paraguay not having a shot on target during the match, they kept the Brazilians at bay and forced the match to spot-kicks. And it proved to be a very wise tactic indeed.
Not helped by a sandy, dusty penalty spot – which players who have grown up taking pot-shots on the Copacabana should have been pretty comfortable with – Brazil’s players unleashed a disastrous series of penalties.
All of which mean that England fans can feel a lot better and that Larissa Rodriguez is still on course to get naked.
