Copa America Centenario Rewind - Day 2

Each day of Copa America brings more excitement and talking points. We will be bringing those to you in the daily Copa rewind. It's your one stop shop to get caught up on the proceedings. 

Biggest Winner - Defenses

270 minutes were played and with just one goal scored on the day, the collective defenses win the MVP of Day 2. Five teams posted clean sheets, with only Haiti conceding, and that was just once. 

Daily MVP - Paolo Guerrero

Again, not much to work with here. He scored the day's only goal (see below).

Goat of the Day – Kendall Waston

Waston recklessly and needlessly went in to a challenge last in Costa Rica's draw and was shown a straight red. The MLS center back will now miss the critical match up on Tuesday against the United States. The Ticos will now have to go to the bench because of Waston's poor judgement.

Biggest Surprise – Where are the Goals?

With the likes of Bryan Ruiz, Joel Campbell, Enner Valencia, and all the Brazilian talent on display, it was Peru who scored the day's only goal. Ecuador had quite the shout for a goal however, as Miler Bolaños' shot was bundled in by Brazil goalkeeper Alisson. The assistant referee called the ball out over the end line and the goal was not allowed. We can only hope there are more goals in this tournament, otherwise the wave will continue taking over stadiums across the country. 

Worst Moment – Haiti's Miss

Trailing 1-0 in stoppage time, Haiti was awarded a free kick in their own half. The equalizing goal was there on a tee but Kervens Belfort missed everything. A heartbreaking moment for the Haitians, as they looked to have a point there for the taking.

Goal of the Day - Paolo Guerrero

Guerrero gave Peru all three points, and in doing so, became Peru's all time leading goalscorer. To be honest, this diving header didn't have much competition to win this award.

MLS Connection

Kendall Waston picked up in Copa where he left off in MLS, getting a straight red card in stoppage time. New York City FC's Ronald Matarrita also started that match for Costa Rica and was involved in a lot of the attack from his left back position. FC Dallas' Carlos Gruezo started and played ninety minutes for Ecuador in the Rose Bowl.

The Final Whistle – The Perfect Result for the US

After falling 2-0 to Colombia on Friday night, the United States saw the perfect result in today's second match of Group A. Costa Rica and Paraguay ended in a 0-0 draw, giving each team just one point. Granted, if the Americans can win their next two games, they have nothing to worry about. That being said, today's draw in Orlando gives them a little extra cushion. Try to take deep breaths American fans, you're going to wear your self out before Tuesday.
