Brazil and Venezuela, eventual leaders in Santos

Uruguay and Colombia, after an amazing win over Paraguay stay close, with six points each, too  


Things are getting pretty tight in the Copa America de Fútbol Playa Santos 2016, after some drama and surprises in this third matchday in the competition.

In Group A, hosts Brazil complied with the role they have been given and delivered terrific beach soccer again to bend Chile and clinch three more points that have them on top of the table. 

It was pretty tough at the beginning for the Verdeamarela, thanks to the mighty approach by La Roja, but as forces began fainting within the Chilean ranks, the virtuosity of the Brazilian display turned the battle into a beach soccer festival. 

Also with six points, Uruguay will get to the fourth day knowing that their game against Brazil tomorrow can be an all-or-nothing clash. 

La Celeste took care of business early today, giving Bolivia little chance and proving terribly well-aimed, something they could really use tomorrow in their encounter with the Tetracampeão. 

Colombia brought on one of the biggest surprises in the tournament, after edging Paraguay 2-4 in a game that leaves everything open in group B. 

Despite Juan López swept the Albirroja ahead midway half first period, the Colombian side reacted amazingly to turn the score around and leave things 1-4 by the end of second leg. 

Paraguay tried and tried, but the Cafeteros were there to place feet, heads and hands and deny the Paraguayan chances (including two penalty kicks!).

After the other game of the group, Venezuela eventually keeps the head of group B today, thanks to a new notable beach soccer display over Peru and Colombia’s win over Paraguay. 

The Vinotinto prevailed 2-3, managing to hit first and build a consistent advantage in the first two legs and resisting the Peruvian reply in the last period. 

Despite the two goals scored by the Blanquirroja in the last frame, their reaction fell one goal short and the Barberi’s lads stay at the top of the table after this third matchday in Santos.
