Peru Knock Brazil Out Of Copa América On Obvious, Uncalled Handball

Peru earned their first in-competition win over Brazil since 1975 thanks to an incredibly obvious handball that interrupted the game for several minutes and appeared to leave the referee in a state of catatonic confusion.

Raúl Ruidíaz’s 75th-minute goal was the only one in the match, and it sent the Brazilians packing from an event they’ve won eight times. Peru will face Colombia in the knockout round.
