Alves contra Haití

The Brazilian national team got the first victory in Copa América against Haiti. Dunga's men easily defeated their rival with a convincing 7-1. The Liverpool midfielder Coutinho was the star of the game with a hat-trick. Renato Augusto accompanied him with two goals, and former Barcelona player Dani Alves also stood out. The right-back did two goal assists and played the whole 90 minutes.

Gabriel Lima and Lucas scored the rest of the goals and canarinha gained self-esteem after doubts created in their debut. The resounding victory puts Brazil at the top of Group B of Copa América, with a total of four points. The next match will be on Monday 13 June.

Today it's Uruguay's turn, facing Venezuela. However, all indications are that Suárez will not be available for the coach, as he still has some discomfort due to leg injury he suffered in Copa del Rey.
