There was a great controversy when the game was 0-0, which could have changed history. A shot from Peña was deflected into Thiago Silva’s arm, but Roberto Tobar saw no penalty. The VAR did not notify the Chilean referee anything either and generated a great controversy in the networks.
Thiago Silva’s penalty, right?

In the second half, Peru cheered up more and had some chances to even the game. Those of Gareca did not have the necessary effectiveness and they were staying with the passing of the minutes.
