Brazil aims to end a 12-year dry spell without a Copa America trophy as they face Peru, a team that they dominated in a group stage match in the 2019 championship final, but the victory that the team is really trying to win will come in the hearts of their skeptical and hard-to-please fans. As The Guardian reported, even a victory over Peru may not be enough to erase what the Brazilian media is calling the "embarrassment" of the team's quarterfinal elimination from the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and failures to even reach the final of the most recent three Copa America tournaments. As a result, Brazil are looking not just for a trophy, but for a tactically dazzling performance in the big match that will live stream from Rio de Janeiro.

As SI.com reports, the team suddenly came alive in the knockout stage, holding Luis Suarez and Edison Cavani's powerhouse Uruguay side to a nil-nil draw, then taking a penalty shootout win. Los Incas followed up with a definitive 3-0 thrashing of defending back-to-back champions Chile to win their place in Sunday's final, with at least a chance at their first trophy in 44 years.
