Brazil exorcize penalty demons, reach Copa semis

first_imgWillian came closest to scoring in normal time for Brazil when he hit the post as Paraguay held out for a 0-0 draw for more than 40 minutes following the dismissal of Fabian Balbuena for a professional foul on Roberto Firmino.Brazilian media had been almost in a state of paranoia before the match recalling the painful memories from Argentina in 2011 and Chile four years later when Paraguay produced stubborn defensive displays before snatching victory in the spot-kick lottery.But it wasn’t to be this time as Brazil goalkeeper Alisson saved Gustavo Gomez’s opening spot-kick at the Gremio Arena in Porto Alegre.Although Firmino dragged his effort wide, Derlis Gonzalez also fired past the post allowing Jesus, who missed a penalty in Brazil’s last match, to be the match-winner.The tournament hosts will face either perennial rivals Argentina or Venezuela in Tuesday’s semi-final in Belo Horizonte.Brazil started brightly and produced a beautiful passing move in the fourth minute as local favorite Everton drove in off the left wing and found Dani Alves on the edge of the area, with the full-back slipping the ball on to Firmino, whose weak shot was straight at goalkeeper Roberto Fernandez.Gremio forward Everton’s popularity was clear in his home stadium as fans wildly cheered his every touch.But the game quickly settled into the expected pattern, with Brazil dominating possession and playing countless passes while a well-drilled Paraguay doggedly held their shape and looked to counter at pace with direct runners.Brazil lacked a cutting edge and even when Philippe Coutinho seemingly played in Firmino behind the defence following a Richard Sanchez mistake, the Liverpool forward was easily muscled off the ball.The best chance of the first quarter fell to Paraguay as Hernan Perez found Gonzalez unmarked at back post but Alisson saved his near post shot.It was turgid fare on offer to the Porto Alegre crowd, who started a slow clap just after the half hour.Brazil reporters had asked coach Tite before the game if he was worried about fouls, which he replied were part of the game.But three Paraguayan players were booked before half-time for overly robust challenges.It wasn’t until five minutes from half time that Coutinho got in behind the defence on the left and fired in a shot from an angle that Fernandez saved comfortably.– Brazil jeered again –Predictably, Brazil were booed off at half-time, for the third time in four matches.Tite wasted no time in making a change, but it was a curious one swapping left-back Felipe Luis for Alex Sandro.Neat interplay saw Firmino tee up Coutinho just outside the box but his precise finish was easily saved again.Brazil had changed tactic and were driving more purposefully at the heart of the defence, with Arthur flashing a shot over the bar.It paid dividends on 54 minutes when Firmino won a free-kick on the edge of the penalty area — overturned from the original decision of a penalty by VAR — and Balbuena was shown a red card for a professional foul.Dani Alves’s fierce low free-kick was deflected wide, though.Brazil started to pull Paraguay’s overworked defenders out of position and Arthur forced Fernandez into a diving save before Jesus dragged an effort wide.With Paraguay unable to pose any threat Tite withdrew his defensive midfielder Allan and threw on winger Willian, with Jesus pushed into the middle alongside Firmino.Almost immediately, Jesus missed a gilt-edged chance from eight yards out before Firmino headed a Marquinhos cross wide.Tite went for broke, bringing on attacking midfielder Lucas Paqueta for full-back Alves and it almost worked but Willian saw his low left foot shot cannon back off the post sending the match into a tense penalty shoot-out.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Brazil players celebrate their Copa America winPORTO ALEGRE, Brazil, Jun 28 – Gabriel Jesus scored the winning spot-kick in a tense penalty shoot-out as Brazil exorcized their demons to beat Paraguay on Thursday and reach the Copa America semi-finals.Twice before in 2011 and 2015 Paraguay had beaten Brazil at this same stage on penalties at the South American extravaganza.last_img read more

Jurors still without Enron verdict after three days of deliberations

first_imgHOUSTON – Jurors completed a third day of deliberations Monday in the federal fraud and conspiracy trial of Enron Corp. founder Kenneth Lay and former Chief Executive Jeffrey Skilling without reaching a verdict. Late in the day, jurors sent a note to the judge asking for external speakers for their laptop computer, the judge said. The jury has several videotapes and audiotapes of Lay and Skilling available to review on the laptop. The panel of eight women and four men received the case on Wednesday. They agreed to deliberate Monday through Thursday and have put in about 16.5 hours over two and a half days. Lay is also on trial separately without a jury before U.S. District Judge Sim Lake on charges stemming from his personal banking. But Skilling has little to do except wait. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

Skilling faces 28 counts of fraud, conspiracy, insider trading and lying to auditors and a maximum of 275 years in prison if convicted on all counts. Lay faces six counts of fraud and conspiracy with a combined maximum punishment of 45 years.
