The Copa America Centenario erupted into controversy on Sunday after a refereeing blunder sent Brazil crashing to a 1-0 defeat against Peru – and out of the tournament. The defeat left Brazil struggling to digest their worst performance in the Copa America since 1987, the last occasion the five-time world champions failed to make it past the group stage.Brazil, needing only a draw to qualify for the quarter-finals as winners of Group B, looked to be on course for a place in the last eight with 15 minutes to go against Peru. But a rare foray into Brazilian territory from Peru ended with Raul Ruidiaz bundling in Andy Polos cross from the by-line, appearing to use his arm to score.Ruidiaz wheeled away to celebrate and Uruguayan referee Andres Cunha signalled for the goal. Miranda leads Brazilian protests after the goal which knocked them out of the Copa America Brazils players protested furiously, swarming around Cunha in a bid to persuade the official to reverse his decision.The protests appeared to have swayed Cunha, who looked to be frantically checking with the fourth official via his headpiece to determine whether the goal should stand.Yet after a chaotic delay of around four minutes - with players from both sides surrounding the referee - Cunha ruled the goal should stand.Multiple replays from different angles, however, showed that Ruidiaz had used his arm to knock the ball into the net past Brazil keeper Alisson.Brazil pressed forward in the final closing minutes in an attempt to find an equaliser that would take them through but it was to no avail.Elias squandered a golden chance from close range in injury time and Brazils fate was sealed.Peru will now play Colombia in the quarter-finals after finishing top of Group B. Members of Perus national team celebrate their victory as Brazils Miranda comforts team-mate Renato Augusto Brazil coach Dunga lambasted the decision to allow Perus goal.I am sure the Brazilian fans saw the game and saw how Brazil was eliminated, Brazil coach Dunga said.There is no way to anticipate imponderables. The team was not eliminated by anything to do with football, he added, criticising the lengthy deliberations between the match officials which held up the game.I do not quite understand who or what the referee was consulting, Dunga said, adding that he had watched replays of the incident on screens in the Gillette Stadium.It was such a clear handball, but we have no influence over the referee, he said.Peru coach Ricardo Gareca said I thought we did enough to deserve to win and added he had not had a clear view of the handball incident.I havent seen it yet. Ive heard some comments. But I never think too much about mistakes by officials, he said. Brazils coach Dunga (R) is pictured after being defeated by Peru Brazils early exit is certain to pile pressure on Dunga after what was a lacklustre tournament.The Brazilians, desperate to begin the road to recovery after their humiliating 7-1 defeat by Germany in the World Cup semi-finals two years ago, never convinced at any point of the group stage.A 0-0 opening draw with Ecuador - where a refereeing decision which might have given Ecuador a victory went in Brazils favour - was followed by a 7-1 drubbing of Haiti, arguably the weakest team in the tournament.Another drab display against Peru followed on Sunday, with Dungas side barely getting a shot on goal in the first half with the exception of a shot by Gabriel in the 26th minute that was tipped away by Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese.Dunga, meanwhile, emphasized that Brazils long-term rebuilding job would take time.There are no quick-fixes, he said. We will need to be patient.You can watch the Copa America live on Premier Sports. Dion Jordan Jersey

The lanky left-hander pitched into the ninth inning in a dominant performance, leading the San Francisco Giants to a 4-1 victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday. "I feel like I got better as the game went on," Bumgarner said. "We were making pitches both sides of the plate, the ball down when we wanted to go down and when we wanted to go up. I felt pretty good all-around today." When Bumgarner took the mound for the ninth, the only hit he had allowed was an infield single that easily could have been an out. "Im not going to lie. I thought about it," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "That would have been a tough only hit to give up." Another infield hit ended Bumgarners outstanding day. He was charged with an unearned run to go along with seven strikeouts and two walks. "He was exceptional," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "Maybe the best I have ever seen him." Sergio Romo gave up Martin Prados RBI single but got his second save in two nights and his 22nd in 26 opportunities overall. Cody Ross got Arizonas first hit when he reached on a dribbler to the left of the mound in the second. Bumgarner went to his right to get the ball, slid, and then stood up and threw low to first baseman Joaquin Arias. "I just tried to get to it as soon as I could," Bumgarner said. "I thought sliding and picking it up and standing up would be the quickest to do it. I didnt want to air-mail it to Arias over there. I kind of threw it in the dirt and gave him a tough hop to get. Nine times out of 10 he comes up with that." Arizonas Paul Goldschmidt called it "one of the better performances Ive seen." Diamondbacks rookie Mike Bolsinger (1-3) allowed a run and five hits in 7 2-3 innings. "He is good and that is why he will probably be an All-Star again this year,&quuot; Bolsinger said of Bumgarner.dddddddddddd. "All I could do is really keep the team in the game. I tried to and we just caught Bumgarner on one of his good days." San Francisco won two in a row against Arizona after losing six straight. It was the third victory in the last 12 games for the NL West-leading Giants, who play the next 10 at home. "It was time for us to start working our way out of this," Bumgarner said. "Everybodys still been in good spirits, a good attitude, so thats a big series to win for us." San Francisco led 1-0 through eight innings. The run scored when Tyler Colvin doubled home Brandon Crawford from first in the fifth inning. Colvin was out trying to stretch it to a triple on a superb relay throw by shortstop Didi Gregorius. San Francisco tagged on three in the ninth, including Joe Paniks run-scoring double for his first career RBI in his first major league start. Buster Posey also doubled home a run and Crawford had an RBI single. In the Arizona ninth, pinch-hitter Jordan Pacheco reached on an error by shortstop Crawford and Ender Inciarte singled off the glove of third baseman Pablo Sandoval. Bochy then pulled Bumgarner, who was trying for his third career complete game. Romo came on and gave up Prados hit, but Paul Goldschmidt hit into a double play and Aaron Hill struck out to end it. NOTES: The Giants have decided not to put OF Angel Pagan on the DL, at least for now. He has missed the last six games with back problems. ... San Francisco returns home to face San Diego on Monday in the opener of a 10-game homestand. Matt Cain (1-5, 4.52 ERA) goes for San Francisco against Andrew Cashner (2-6, 2.46 ERA). ... The Diamondbacks have Monday off and begin a two-game interleague series against Cleveland on Tuesday. ... Diamondbacks rookie SS Chris Owings missed his second straight game with a sore ankle.
