Would you look at the state of this defending by David Luiz?!

Brazil still managed to overturn the deficit and beat Peru 2-1.

PSG thought Luiz was worth £50 million. He's not.

DAVID LUIZ REMINDED everyone how good Chelsea’s transfer committee are last night after the PSG defender made an absolute cock-up in Brazil’s opening Copa America game against Peru.

It only took three minutes for the most expensive defender in history to cause a mix-up in defence as he bizarrely tried running the ball out of defence when facing his own goal and under pressure from Paolo Guerrero.

It must be said that goalkeeper Jefferson is as much to blame as the former Chelsea defender as he fluffed his lines when he tried to clear the ball and gifted it straight to Christian Cueva who tapped into the net.

It took another inspirational performance from captain Neymar to rescue the game for Brazil. The Barcelona forward scored the equaliser before setting up the winning goal for Douglas Costa late on in the game.

In the night’s other game, Colombia were downed by a Salomon Rondón strike as they sunk to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Venezuela.
