Sélections : O dia de glória pour Lucas Paqueta et le Brésil ?
After two masterful performances, Lyon midfielder Lucas Paqueta will play the Copa America final from Saturday to Sunday against Brazil's historic rival Argentina.

Nothing will be able to stop him! Forced off from the Copa America semi-final against Peru with a gash on his shin, Lucas Paqueta reassured all the Brazilian people with an ironic "Just a scratch" on his social media. This is because the 23-year-old OL midfielder, who was not an automatic starter for his coach at the start of the competition, has entered Tite's good graces at the same time as those of the Seleçao supporters. .

 

His technical relationship with Neymar, his influence in playing as a number 10, his breakthrough goal in the quarterfinals against Chile and his strike in the semifinals have won over football lovers across the Atlantic. While preparations for the new season are in full swing for his Lyon teammates, who are awaiting his return, Lucas Paqueta has the opportunity on Saturday evening to write his name in the history of the Seleçao and to represent the colors of OL with honor against Argentina’s rivals Messi and company, with a chance to win the second Copa America of his young career!
