  1. Goodbye

    Copa America 2015 has come alive.

    Brazil have three points in the bag after Venezuela produced the shock of the tournament so far by defeating Colombia.

    Monday's action sees hosts Chile take on Mexico in Santiago while the other Group A game is between Ecuador and Bolivia. Thanks for your company and don't forget you can see goals from Sunday's action on the BBC Sport website later.

    Neymar lies injured during Brazil's 2014 World Cup quarter-final with Colombia

    Next up for Brazil?

    A trip to Chile's capital Santiago to face Colombia on Wednesday, a repeat of last year's stormy World Cup quarter-final.

    Brazil won that game 2-1 but it came at a cost as Neymar was ruled out for the rest of the tournament with a fractured vertebra in his spine when kneed in the back by Juan Zuniga in a challenge that went unpunished.

    But Neymar got his revenge when the teams met in a friendly last September, the Barcelona player scoring the only goal of the game.

  4. Post update

    Brazil 2-1 Peru

    They were far from their best but that's 11 wins out of 11 now for Brazil since last summer's World Cup. More importantly their Copa America campaign is off to a successful start.

  5. FULL-TIME

    Brazil 2-1 Peru

    Late drama on Saturday as Paraguay scored an 89th minute equaliser against Argentina. Late drama in Temuco as Brazil score a stoppage time winner against Peru.

  6. Post update

    Brazil 2-1 Peru

    It is hard not to feel sorry for Peru's players. They've run themselves into the ground. We're into the last few seconds.

  7. GOAL

    Brazil 2-1 Peru - Costa

    Astonishing!

    Brilliant pass by Neymar to pick out substitute Douglas Costa who produces a composed low finish from an angle to hit what is surely the winner.

    Heartbreak for Peru.

    Neymar
  8. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Four minutes added time.

  9. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    So close by Neymar!

    Peru's defence, solid throughout, drop their guard and allow Brazil's star player too much space on the edge of the area.

    He spots the keeper off his line but there is too much curl on his shot and the ball fizzes just wide.

  10. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    There was last minute drama as Paraguay secured a point against Argentina on Saturday. Time for one last twist in Temuco?

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Five minutes left. A promising Brazil attack is curtailed by an offside flag. Time for a third and final change. Willian, who has been far from his best, is replaced by fellow midfielder Everton Ribeiro.

  12. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Double change for Peru. Are they shutting up shop hoping for a point? Not a chance. They replace midfielder Christian Cueva and forward Jefferson Farfan with strikers Yordy Reyna and Andre Carrillo. Bold step or a bad change?

    Christian Cueva celebrates
  13. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Ten minutes remaining. Still no sign of a Brazil winner.

  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Time is running out for the five-time world champions. Another Brazil change. Fred is off and on comes Hoffenheim midfielder Roberto Firmino.

    Fred
  15. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Free-kick to Peru. Jefferson Farfan takes an eternity lining it up before slamming the ball into the wall. Suddenly Brazil are on the counter through Neymar. He tees up substitute Douglas Costa but his finish falls narrowly wide of the target.

  16. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    No doubt who the locals are supporting. Ole, ole sing the crowd as the men in red put together a string of passes. Peru are close to a terrific result.

    Carlos Lobaton
  17. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Twenty minutes remaining. At last a sense of urgency from Brazil. A flowing move ends with Willian's low goal-bound volley from inside the area hitting a red shirt and bouncing to safety.

    Martol: Most of Peru's players are domestically based. I have always likened the standard there to the Championship.

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Diego Tardelli's not really impressed and he is replaced by midfielder Douglas Costa. It's Diego Costa Brazil could do with right now.

    Diego Tardelli
  20. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Another Brazil attack. Another dead end as they run into a big red defensive wall. Brazil change coming up.

  21. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Peru will be delighted with how this is going. The team that sits 61st in the world are gaining momentum by the minute. Brazil are already showing signs of frustration.

    Fernandinho
  22. YELLOW CARD

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Ouch! The tackles are flying. Filipe Luis clatters into the back of Jefferson Farfan to leave the Peru forward in a heap on the floor. The Chelsea man looks surprised to be shown a yellow card. He's lucky that did not spark a full blown brawl.

    Jefferson Farfan

  25. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Out of nowhere a piece of brilliance by Neymar, by far the best player on the pitch. The Champions League winner rattles the woodwork with a terrific curling shot that beats the keeper all ends up.

    Neymar
  26. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    What's happened to the game? Stop-start. Carlos Ascues is able to continue after treatment but now Peru's Carlos Zambrano has gone down hurt.

  27. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    There's a Peru player down. Midfielder Carlos Ascues comes off worse in a 50-50 challenge with Diego Tardelli. Ascues is huge. He certainly doesn't look as though he would go down easily.

  28. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Brazil are being penned inside their own half. Little urgency about their play. How long before Dunga makes changes?

  29. KICK-OFF

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Back under way at a rain soaked Estadio Municipal German Becker. Can Peru stop Brazil from winning?

    As it stands, Venezuela are going to end the day on top of Group C ahead of Brazil and Colombia. Hands up who predicted that?

  32. The story so far

    Argentina v Paraguay

    Chile, Uruguay and Venezuela are the only teams to register victories so far.

    Chile launched the tournament with a 2-0 win over Ecuador in Estadio Nacional in Santiago before Mexico were held by Bolivia in the same group.

    Uruguay launched their Group B campaign with a narrow 1-0 win over Jamaica, while the game of the tournament so far saw Paraguay come from 2-0 behind to secure a draw against Argentina.

    Earlier today Venezuela caused the biggest surprise so far with a 1-0 win over Colombia.

  34. HALF-TIME

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Brazil have work to do if they are to get their Copa America campaign off to a winning start. Terrific from Peru.

  35. YELLOW CARD

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Bizarre scenes. Brazil win a free-kick and Neymar, unhappy where the referee has marked the spot, scoops up the spray with his hands in protest and is promptly booked.

  36. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Here comes Chelsea's Filipe Luis. What's he doing in the Peru area? The defender is off balance as he fires over from the edge of the area following a dinking run.

    Filipe Luis
  37. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    We've already seen one upset tonight in the shape of Venezuela's narrow win over Colombia and Peru are pulling out all the stops to produce another.

    Carlos Lobaton tests Jefferson with a long-range drive. They're growing into this.

    Venezuela celebrate
  38. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    This is still a very open game. Peru win a corner. It's cleared and Brazil are on the counter. Willian cuts in from the wing and charges at the Peru defence before drilling the ball across the face of goal.

    Kyle Lafferty
  40. YELLOW CARD

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    First yellow card of the night to Paolo Guerrero after a very late challenge on Dani Alves leaves the Brazilian wincing in pain. Brazil temporarily down to 10 as Alves goes off for treatment. I suspect it's not the only booking we will see.

  41. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Peru are knocking it about nicely but more often than not their final pass is letting them down. This is a much more even contest than many predicted. Brazil are being made to work hard.

  43. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Peru's threat is coming from Jefferson Farfan. The Schalke forward almost did not start the match after having an allergic reaction.

  44. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Neymar is turning on the style. A flick here, a step-over there. The Barcelona player is also finding himself increasingly manhandled as Peru's defence struggle to deal with him. He's not happy with the treatment being dished out to him.

    Neymar
  45. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Another chance for Brazil. This time Diego Tardelli is unable to take advantage after more poor Peru defending. This could be a high-scoring encounter.

  46. Post update

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    Conditions in Temuco are like a wet Monday night in Wigan. It's pouring down in southern Chile and you can see the breath from the players mouths as they scream at one another.

  48. Right said Fred

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    By the way, this is not the Fred who became a laughing stock at the World Cup. This is 22-year-old Frederico Rodrigues Santos who plays for Shakhtar Donetsk. The taller older Fred (Frederico Chaves Guedes) retired from international football after the World Cup.

    You could be forgiven for making the mistake, though. Even Brazil's fans mistakenly booed new Fred at a friendly against Mexico when he made his debut.

  49. CLOSE!

    Brazil 1-1 Peru

    More pinball inside the Peru area and Neymar looks certain to score. The Champions League winner pulls the trigger and the ball is heading for the back of the net before Luis Advincula somehow clears off the line. This is brilliant entertainment. And what a clearance!

    Neymar

    Peru fans are still celebrating when Dani Alves delivers a delicious cross for poster boy Neymar, who is totally unmarked, to power a header into the back of the net from 10 yards.

  56. GOAL

    Brazil 0-1 Peru - Christian Cueva

    What a disaster for Brazil.

    Horrific defending by David Luiz puts his own keeper under pressure and Jefferson passes straight to Christian Cueva who lashes home from 10 yards.

    Cueva and Peru can't believe their luck.

  65. "Records are there to be broken"

    Brazil v Peru (22:30 BST)

    Peru fans

    Peru fans have had little to cheer about in recent years. Their country has not reached the World Cup since 1982 and haven't won Copa America since 1975. In addition they have to go back 30 years to the last time their team beat Brazil and their last victory in this tournament over them was a decade before that.

    But Peru captain Carlos Lobaton says history will count for nothing tonight.

    "Records exist to be broken," he said. "We are all anxious and looking forward to coming up against them."

  66. Recipe for success?

    Brazil v Peru (22:30 BST)

    Oscar

    Oscar has been ruled out of Copa America due to a thigh injury but Chelsea's Brazilian forward has been cooking up something special ahead of his country's game with Peru.

    The 23-year-old posted a picture of himself on Twitter preparing feijoada - a stew of beans with beef and pork ahead of tonight's game.

    Judging by the size of the cooking pot, it appears Oscar has invited a few friends round to help him polish off the dish.

    Estadio German Becker

    Copa America is supposed to provide Brazil with a fresh start after their nightmare 7-1 World Cup semi-final defeat to Germany last summer. Yet try as hard as they might to forget, they have been given a number of unwelcome reminders in Chile of that disastrous day.

    Not only is the road of their first hotel in Chile called Germany Avenue, the name of the ground for their game against Peru in Temuco is Estadio German Becker.

    It's enough to make David Luiz, one of the few survivors from last year's thrashing, scream.

    Venezuela have around five minutes to hang on for a famous win. There's a bizarre situation as Venezuela's Franklin Lucena, about to be brought on as a substitute, is booked before even entering the field. He slapped the ball out of a Colombian grip to prevent a quick throw and the referee showed him a yellow card.

    Brazil 1-7 Germany

    Three hundred and forty one days have passed. Eleven months and six days to heal the hurt and humiliation felt by a football-mad nation. More than 8,000 hours to recover, regroup and go again.

    The 7-1 semi-final defeat suffered at the hands of Germany at last summer's World Cup will go down as one of their darkest football days.

    Brazil fan

    But the manager is gone, so too most of the players, and a new-look side is eager to make amends for last summer's disaster.

    Can five-time world champions Brazil make a successful return to tournament action by winning the 2015 Copa America?
