Copa America hosts, Brazil thumped Peru 5-0 on Saturday, to cruise into quarter-final.

The rampaging Tite’s men took the lead after 12 minutes, when Casemiro was on hand to nod home after a goalmouth scramble.

Roberto Firmino doubled Brazil’s lead seven minutes later, after Peru’s goalkeeper, Pedro Gallese, made a terrible kick.

Everton’s low shot managed to get into Gallese’s net through his near post to make it 3-0 on 32 minutes.

Captain Dani Alves made it 4-0 when he finished off a nice team on the 53rd minute.

Substitute Willian made it five with a strike from outside the box in the 90th minute.

The result, with Venezuela’s 3-1 win over Bolivia, means the hosts top Group A, and will play one of the two third-placed teams on Thursday.

Second-placed Venezuela will face the second team in Group B on Friday at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro, while Peru must wait to see if their four points are enough to earn them a place as one of the two best third-placed sides.
