Brazil 0-0 Venezuela: Hosts booed off after 3 disallowed goals

2019 Copa America hosts Brazil were booed off the pitch as they were held to a surprise 0-0 draw by Venezuela on Tuesday.

Tite’s side had beaten Bolivia 3-0 in their opening group game but saw three goals ruled out as they were held to a stalemate against the South American minnows in game number two. The Samba Boys were booed off by their home support at full-time in this one, having been booed off at 0-0 at half-time in their first game.

Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino was the first to have a goal ruled out, by referee Julio Bascunan.

Gabriel Jesus appeared to have given Brazil the lead after the break but the Manchester City striker saw his goal overturned by VAR for a foul in the build up. Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho appeared to have won the game with a late striker but once again VAR intervened.

Brazil are joint top of Group A with four points, level with Peru who beat Bolivia on 3-1 on Tuesday. The two nations meet to determine who will win the group on Saturday.
