SAO PAULO --- Zito, the leader of
Brazil s World Cup-winning teams
in 1958 and 1962, has died, Brazilian
club Santos says. He was 82.
The cause of the former Santos
midfielder s death was not officially
announced yesterday, but Zito had
been battling Alzheimer s disease and
last year suffered a stroke that left
him hospitalized for more than a
Zito scored one of the goals when
Brazil defeated Czechoslovakia 3-1 in
the 1962 final.
Zito was considered by many a
mentor to the young Pele, and was
also known as the man who first saw
the talent of Neymar, when the current
Barcelona forward was only 11, telling
Santos directors to sign him as quickly
Neymar, Brazil s biggest star today,
went on Twitter thanking Zito for
"everything he did to me." (AP)
TEMUCO --- Neymar scored a goal
and set up the injury-time winner for
Douglas Costa, helping Brazil open
its Copa America campaign with a 2-
1 over Peru on Sunday night.
Costa found the net from close range
after receiving a perfect pass from Ney-
mar two-minutes into second-half
injury time, calmly sending a low shot
past the Peruvian goalkeeper.
Peru surprised early with a goal by
midfielder Christian Cueva less than
three minutes into the match after
Brazil keeper Jefferson made a mistake
trying to clear the ball inside the area
after a tough pass from David Luiz.
Neymar equalised two minutes later
with a firm header from near the penal-
The victory gave Brazil the early lead
in Group C along with Venezuela,
which defeated Colombia 1-0 earlier
Sunday in Rancagua. Brazil next faces
Colombia tomorrow, while Peru plays
Venezuela on Thursday.
"The opening match is always dif-
ficult," said Neymar, who scored his
44th goal for Brazil. "Especially in a
competition like this one, with the
rivalry in South America. But we got
the victory, which is the most important
Brazil has won 11 straight games since
coach Dunga replaced Luiz Felipe Sco-
lari after last year s World Cup at home.
The Copa America is Brazil s first
official competition since it was humil-
iated in a 7-1 World Cup semifinal loss
to Germany. With six players from that
squad, Brazil is trying to win the South
American tournament for the first time
since 2007, when Dunga was in charge
of the national team for the first time
in his career.
Brazil has won four of the last six
Copa Americas, including two of the
Brazil controlled possession during
most of the match at German Becker
Stadium, but struggled to create many
significant scoring opportunities. One
of the best chances was a shot by Ney-
mar that struck the crossbar in the
53rd, with Peru goalkeeper Pedro
Gallese already beaten.
Cueva opened the scoring after Luiz
passed the ball back to Jefferson while
under pressure inside the area, and the
goalkeeper misplayed the ball while
trying to clear the box. It went straight
to Cueva, who easily found the net
from close range.
Neymar was free from any defenders
when he headed in the equaliser off a
right-side cross by Barcelona teammate
Daniel Alves, who was a late addition
to Dunga s Copa America team.
Neymar then set up the winner with
a low pass that crossed the area through
several defenders and found Costa in
great position to score.
"It was an important goal," Costa
said. "It was a perfect pass from Ney-
mar and I was able to control the ball
and get a shot on goal."
Costa, who entered the match in the
second half, had already missed on
another great chance on a breakaway
started by Neymar in the 75th.
Dunga could not count on Liverpool
midfielder Philippe Coutinho because
of a muscle injury sustained in practice.
Brazil had already lost several players
because of injuries ahead of the tour-
nament, including left back Marcelo,
playmaker Oscar, defensive midfielder
Luiz Gustavo and right back Danilo.
Also, Colombia got off to a disap-
pointing start in the Copa America,
losing 1-0 to Venezuela in the first
game for each team in the South Amer-
Striker Salomon Rondon, Venezuela s
biggest threat in the match, headed the
winner past keeper David Ospina and
into the far corner in the 60th minute.
Yesterday, in Valparaiso, Bolivia
scored three unanswered first-half goals
and held on for a 3-2 victory over
Ecuador in Group A.
Bolivia has four points from its first
two matches in the South America
championship, while Ecuador has lost
its first two games and is in danger of
going out in the first round.
Ronald Raldes, Martin Smedberg and
Marcelo Moreno gave Bolivia a 3-0
lead after dominating the first half.
Ecuador rallied immediately, and
Ener Valencia made it 3-1 in the 48th
minute. Miller Bolanos made it 3-2 in
the 82nd as Ecuador had a half-dozen
chances to equalise or win the match.
On Friday, Ecuador plays Mexico and
Bolivia face Chile in the final Group A

winner with Brazil, dies at 82
