micro050715

A packed weekend of international football delivered some intriguing outcomes in the football results from yesterday (Sunday 14 June 2015). Key results will be covered from Euro 2016 Qualifying and the Copa America 2015.

Two goals from Jack Wilshere and one from Wayne Rooney spared England’s blushes in a 3-2 away victory over Slovenia. Elsewhere, Spain only managed to scrape a narrow 1-0 victory in Belarus.

Brazil succeeded in beginning their Copa America campaign with three points, but not in appeasing their fans, who will demand better performances than a laboured 2-1 win over Peru. A late stoppage time goal from Douglas Costa was needed to secure the win.

Argentina were not quite so fortunate. Despite starting with a front line comprised of Leo Messi, Sergio Agüero, and Ángel Di María, the Argentines could do no better than a 2-2 draw with Paraguay. A 2-0 first-half lead was squandered as Paraguay were afforded two second-half goals.
