Fabinho was a late substitute as Brazil progressed to the Copa America final by beating Peru 1-0 overnight.

The Liverpool midfielder entered the action in Rio de Janeiro on 85 minutes with his country successfully protecting a lead given to them by Lucas Paqueta during the first half.

His Reds teammates Alisson Becker and Roberto Firmino were unused substitutes.

Brazil, the reigning holders, will now face either Argentina or Colombia in the 2021 final, which will be played late on Saturday night.
