Columbia’s forward Luis Diaz scored a sensational winner as Colombia beat Peru 3-2 in Brasilia on Friday to finish third in the Copa America.
The winner was Luiz’s second of the match and came just 10 minutes after Gianluca Lapadula looked to have sent the game into a penalty shoot-out.
However, Colombia captain Juan Cuadrado curled a free-kick through the wall to draw Colombia level after 49 minutes and then the 24-year-old Porto forward got his third goal of the tournament 17 minutes later.
Colombia captain Cuadro said: “We’re happy, it was important to finish by winning.
“I’m happy with how we reacted (to going behind) and how we went after the result.
Colombia had the better start and piled on early pressure but Peru held firm despite the ball often pinging around in their box.
Peru even had the first clear chance on 28 minutes when Christian Cueva’s clever pass found Lapadula, but under pressure from a defender he fired narrowly wide from just inside the box.
