The Selecao were crowned kings of South America for the first time since 2007 with victory over Peru, in a game where Jesus took centre-stage after receiving a red card
Tite’s men beat their final opponents 5-0 during the group stage but were under pressure when Peru skipper Paolo Guerrero cancelled out Richarlison’s opener with a 44th-minute penalty.
Paolo Guerrero had briefly given Peru hope when he equalised from the penalty spot minutes before Jesus struck.
Jesus was shown a second yellow with 20 minutes left but Richarlison’s late penalty sealed the win.
It is the ninth time Brazil have won the Copa America and is their first tournament success since winning a gold medal at the 2016 Olympics.
