Brazil suffered to defeat a brave Venezuela 1-2 on Thursday, whose goal was canceled by VAR in a controversial action, and set its place for the Paris Games on the last day of the South American pre-olympic tournament next Sunday against Argentina.
In the third and final date of the final quadrangular, which will be played this Sunday at the Brígido Iriarte stadium in Caracas, Argentina will face Brazil and Paraguay will face Venezuela.
Argentina saved an injury-time tie against Paraguay in the U-23 Olympic Qualifiers
The last home run of the tournament is led by Paraguay with 4 points, followed by Brazil with 3, Argentina with 2, and Venezuela with 1.
At the beginning of the game, Vinotinto came out excited and with greater confidence in finding the Canarinha goal, which seemed to have no compass in the first minutes.
‘They turned us down’! They said in Argentina about the judge, Augusto Aragón, that the 2021 Pro League final was played in a’swimming pool’. They called him ‘negligent and a localist’
At 10, Venezuela had a great opportunity to score with Telasco Segovia, who stole the ball from Santos, and Mycael had to make an effort with a great stretch.
In Brazil, neither Endrick nor John Kennedy were able to control the ball, and in their attacking battles, they did not create any danger.
In addition, in the last meters of the field, Canarinha looked helpless, motionless, and without connection between the midfield and the attack, which made Venezuela very comfortable on the field.
However, when things went from bad to worse, Brazil found the goal in the 57th minute through Mauricio.
The ball reached the far post; it was lowered by Endrick, whose shot was stopped by the defense, but Mauricio came to life, took the ball, and scored 0-1 due to the helplessness of goalkeeper Samuel Rodríguez.
At the age of 61, it was Endrick who made the Venezuelan fans suffer with a header.
From there, the roles changed; composure came to the hosts of Auriverde, and despair spread to Vinotinto, who tried to regain command but struggled to get the ball.
Until Jovanny Bolívar arrived,. The Venezuelan number 11 avoided any fears in the 67th minute with a goal where he nailed an unstoppable shot past Mycael.
In 1974, the controversial game took place. Bolívar made Matías Lacava a beautiful cue, and he finished 2-1 to Venezuela, which everyone in the stadium was able to celebrate. It was the goal of the tournament, but VAR disallowed it because a Venezuelan player interfered, according to the referee, between Ball and Mycael.
From the party, the stadium fell silent after the referee’s decision.
And then the silence became huge in the 88th minute when Guilherme Biro gained speed and finished low, between the legs of the Venezuelan goalkeeper, and gave Brazil a long, suffering 1–2 victory that brought it closer to the Olympic Games in Paris. . (D)
Argentina is looking forward to it, where the only good thing is to win.
