Saturday’s results in the 2011 Copa América saw two thrilling matches which finished with Venezuela topping Group B with one match remaining of the first round. Brazil got a late equaliser against Paraguay to claim a scarcely-deserved 2-2 draw after they’d been comfortably outplayed for the whole of the second half. Venezuela’s match against Ecuador was less action-packed, but the only goal was worthy of winning any match; a long-range stunner from César Eduardo González. That, and highlights of the other match, are right here.
