Paraguay have dumped out Brazil of the Copa America 2015 quarter-finals with a 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in the regular 90 minutes.

The Selecao took the lead over Robinho already in the 15th minute and have had a lead until the 72nd minute when PSG defender Thiago Silva plays with a hand inside the box. D. González converts the penalty and levels the score which remained until the end of 90 minutes. Two late substitues for Brazil, Ribeiro and Douglas Costa have missed their shots, while for Paraguay the same did their best striker in history Roque Santa Cruz. Still, that wasn’t a problem as Derlis González once again steps in after already scoring one during the game and sends Paraguay into the Copa America 2015 semi-finals.
