The second round of matches in Group B of the ongoing Copa America recorded a lot of goals with Brazil finally coming to the party...
Here's the recap of the action.
Brazil 7-1 Haiti
Philippe Coutinho netted a hat trick as Brazil kick-started its Copa America Centenario campaign with a 7-1 win over Haiti.
Brazil played out a contentious goalless draw with Ecuador last time out but there was nothing controversial about Wednesday's Group B victory as Philippe Coutinho put the result beyond doubt against the Caribbean minnow during the first 45 minutes in Orlando.
Coutinho scored twice inside the opening half hour and completed his hat trick in the second minute of injury time at Camping World Stadium.

Miller Bolanos scored the equalizing goal early in the second half after Peru took a commanding lead at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
Christian Cueva put Peru ahead in just the fifth minute with one of the goals of the centenary tournament, before Edison Flores doubled the advantage eight minutes later.

Enner Valencia reduced the deficit on the stroke of halftime and it was Bolanos who made it 2-2 three minutes into the second period, with neither side finding the net in the closing stages as Ecuador defender Gabriel Achilier saw red for a second bookable offence.
The result keeps Peru in second position in Group B on four points with a clash against Brazil to come, while Ecuador is two points behind and will face Haiti in its final game.
