Brazil left it late to see off Peru in their opening match in Group C, with Douglas Costa scoring in injury time to clinch a 2-1 victory.

Christian Cueva had given Los Incas a shock lead in Temuco, making the most of an error by Brazil goalkeeper Jefferson to open the scoring in the third minute.

However, it did not take Brazil – playing in their first competitive fixture since hosting the 2014 World Cup – too long to get back on level terms.

Peru had only themselves to blame as they inexplicably left Neymar unmarked in the box, allowing the Barcelona forward to turn home Dani Alves’ cross from the right wing after five minutes.

It seemed honours would finish even until Costa popped up in the box to steer home a winner as the game neared a conclusion.

The substitute’s dramatic strike extends Dunga’s unbeaten run in charge to 11 matches, while also means Brazil share top spot in the group with Venezuela.
