Liverpool duo are Copa America champions

Liverpool’s Brazilian duo of Alisson and Firmino won the Copa America after the Samba stars defeated Peru in the final (3-1) last night.

Going into the final, our No. 9 had scored two goals and provided three assists in the competition, however, he could not add to that tally in the final.

Man City striker Gabriel Jesus netted a brace and Everton star Richarlison scored very late from the spot to seal victory for the Selecao, who lifted the coveted trophy for the ninth time.

Alisson, who won the PL Golden Glove and the Champions League Golden Glove in the last campaign with Liverpool, was rock solid in the Copa America and conceded just one goal that too in the final from a penalty kick.

Late in the first half, Thiago Silva accidentally handled the ball in the box and Paolo Guerrero stepped up to score for Peru. Nevertheless, that goal did not stop our new No.1 from becoming the first goal-keeper to win three Golden Gloves in a year.

Firmino and Alisson are now set to take an end-of-season vacation before returning to Liverpool for the new season.

Elsewhere, at the weekend, Mohamed Salah’s Egypt suffered a shocking elimination from the African Cup of Nations at the hands of South Africa.

On the other hand, Sadio Mane’s Senegal will collide against Benin in the quarter finals of the AFCON on Wednesday. Our star winger scored the winning goal against Uganda in the Round of 16.
