Of course the one time I need a source, it's playing the wrong fucking channel. Will have to wait for Peru vs Brazil then. I wanted to watch the earlier game :(

Diego Rossi is killing it here. I expect him to shine throughout this whole tournament. Nearly got an assist after outpacing his marker on a long ball.

1-0 Brazil. Paulinho after a Bruno Guimarães assist. Bruno is so good, man.

Bruno has been great. Paulinho has been doing whatever he wants but poor decision making.

Meanwhile we have been garbage. Nobby Solano went out for a draw and botched the tactical side completely. The CB's are confused as anything and don't know where to go or who to mark. Olivares isn't marking the Brazilian defenders to not allow them to exit their half. Only two I thought had a good half were new Fluminense signing Fernando Pacheco and Gianfranco Chavez.

Jairo Concha better come on. Kluiverth Aguilar also needs to see a couple of minutes.

Great second half performance. I'm surprised how poor Marcos Lopez looked. Dylan Caro came on and put him to shame. Looked way better. Pacheco proving a point about why he went to Fluminense. Meanwhile, Gianfranco Chavez is so mature as a defender for his age.

Hard to understand why Peru was so reactive in the 1st half. Had they played the entire match like they did the 1st half, perhaps they could've get a point or even win the match. 

Pacheco had a really good performance. Looking forward to see watch his development at Fluminense.

Pacheco’s a weird one. He was a top talent in his youth days but couldn’t make a transition to the top flight. He just made too many poor decisions in the final third that he was eventually benched. This season he got another chance and same thing. It came as a shock that he left to Fluminense for 1.5 million. However, I get the idea that the problem here is coaching. Abram, Flores and Ruidiaz for example have been way better abroad than they were in Peru. So I have faith in Pacheco in that sense.

If I were to recommend a Peruvian in this tournament to watch, it would be Gianfranco Chavez. He is so unbelievably mature as a defender for his age. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bad game from him.

Ecuador lost 4-0 to Colombia yesterday, though they were missing Leonardo Campana so he can sign for Wolverhampton Wanderers. Still, I think this Ecuador side are a bluff. They've not shown anything since the U20 World Cup.

Chile also beat Venezuela 1-0.

Brazil and Chile are the only two with a perfect 6 out of 6 points so far.

Venezuela beat Ecuador earlier today with a lone goal from Yeferson Soteldo.

Now Argentina is beating Chile 1-0 at half time. Entertaining game, both teams really going for it.

Argentina ended up winning 2-0 yesterday, though Chile was the better attacking team.

Bolivia doing well. They have a lot of the ball but they have no improvisation and are struggling to break down Uruguay's defence.

Diego Rossi hasn't shown up a lot yet for Uruguay. Ronaldo Sanchez has been decent for the Bolivians.

Bolivia parked the bus after their second goal and Uruguay score 2. Classic Bolivia xD

Bolivia avoid the banana skin and score at the death to beat Uruguay 3-2. Massive relief for them.

We robbed Paraguay. Went down 2-0 in the first 15 minutes, then 2 goalkeeper blunders in the second half sees us come back to draw it 2-2. Finally, Arzamendia heads the ball into his own net and scores our winning goal.

To make things more sour for Paraguay, they scored a goal in the last minute that was wrongly ruled out for offside. Clearly onside to me, but we'll take it and run.

Horrible game from Peru but won it by pure spirit.

Colombia beat Venezuela 2-1 yesterday and are through to the next round unless they lose to Chile on the final day.

Peru vs Uruguay is the first game today. Very nervous I am!

We lost 1-0 but somehow the fate is still in our hands. Beat Bolivia and we're in.

Sadly, this is the best Bolivian youth teams since the 80's and are currently giving Brazil a game. I don't think we'll do it.

Colombia and Argentina through from Group A.

Group B will be finished tomorrow. Brazil are through and I reckon the other team will be Paraguay.
