Rica Adriano struck a hat-trick as Brazil ran out easy 4-1 victors over Costa Rica and booked their berth in the quarterfinal of Copa America, the American continent's equivalent of the European championship. Paraguay also edged closer to qualification for the quarterfinals with a draw against Chile. They now need a point from their final Group C match with Brazil, while Chile must beat Costa Rica and hope other results go in their favour.
