Result: Brazil crush Peru to progress into Copa America quarter-finals as group winners

Copa America hosts Brazil book their place in the quarter-finals of the competition with a 5-0 win over Peru in Sao Paulo.

Brazil have cruised to a 5-0 win over Peru at the Corinthians Arena in Sao Paulo to progress through to the quarter-finals of the Copa America as Group A winners.

The Selecao were booed during their first two matches and required victory in this final round-robin fixture to make certain of top spot.

Casemiro got Brazil up and running with a close-range header after 12 minutes, Roberto Firmino added a second shortly after and Everton put the tournament hosts three up before half time.

Dani Alves and substitute Willian scored two top-class goals after the restart to render Gabriel Jesus's late penalty miss insignificant as Tite's men picked up the win they were after, which at the same time knocks Peru down to third and leaves them sweating on their place in the last eight.

Following a slow start to the match, Brazil opened the scoring through their first corner as Marquinhos headed the ball against the frame of the goal and Casemiro helped it over the line from a yard out.

Brazil's second followed seven minutes later as Firmino charged down Pedro Gallese's attempted clearance and latched onto the rebound after it came back off the post, leaving the Liverpool forward with the task of rounding the keeper and slotting the ball into an empty net.

Peru, and particularly goalkeeper Gallese, imploded as Everton - having forced his way into the starting lineup after a couple of promising displays from the bench - cut inside from the left and picked out the bottom corner from 25 yards.

Miguel Trauco was kept out by Alisson Becker from a tight angle at the end of the first half and Jesus, the quietest of Brazil's attacking players, curled wide from inside the box.

After a strong penalty appeal for Everton was rejected, Brazil added a fourth goal to their tally thanks to a fine team move.

Tournament captain Alves exchanged passes with Arthur and then Firmino before thumping the ball past Gallese.

Further off-target shots followed from Arthur and the lively Everton, before Willian rounded off the scoring with a trademark curler from 20 yards after creating some space for himself.

Jesus should have got off the mark at a major tournament for Brazil in added time, only for his penalty to be saved by Gallese, who was at fault for conceding it when tripping the forward.
