Copa America Day 8

Brazil, Chile and Mexico booked their places in the knockout stages as Group B reached its climax last night.

Chile and Mexico played out a largely uneventful 0-0 draw in the nights opening match, with Brazil following that with a 1-0 victory over Ecuador, despite another highely unconvincing performance. Robinho was once again their saviour, winning and converting a second half penalty to put Brazil through to the quarter finals.

There they will meet Chile, who went through as one of the two best third placed sides. Mexico will face the runner up in Group C, which will be either Argentina or Paraguay.
