20:48 | Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Jul. 5.

Peru's national soccer team on Monday lost 1-0 against Brazil in the first semifinal match at the Copa America 2021.

The game was played at Nilton Santos Stadium in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro.

The only goal of the match was scored by Lucas Paqueta (Brazil) in the 35th minute of the first half.

Thus, the Incas will play against the winner of the second semifinal —between Argentina and Colombia— for a third-place finish at the CONMEBOL competition.

It should be pointed out that Andre Carrillo is expected to play in the next match after the red card he received in Peru's win against Paraguay on Friday.
