Brazil trained at the Granja Comary, Teresopolis, on Thursday ahead of the Copa America final against Peru on Sunday at the Maracana Stadium.

Only 13 days ago, Brazil thrashed Peru 5-0 in a Copa America group stage match, with samba-style soccer, goals from long distance and defensive perfection.

Brazil will be seeking its ninth Copa America title and first since 2007. Peru, with two South American cup trophies, will play its first decider of the tournament in 44 years.

Five-time world champion Brazil is third in the FIFA rankings, while Peru is 21st after reaching last year's World Cup in Russia, its first since 1982.

The Copa America hosts scored more goals than any team in the tournament (10), have yet to concede any and will play in Rio for the first time in six years in front of nearly 80,000 fans.
