Great! No player has beaten Alisson in 846 minutes of football and fans have quite rightly praised the goalkeeper after the Copa America semi-final
However, host nation Brazil were the first team to book their place in the final of the 2019 Copa America with a win over Argentina.
Goals from Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino secured the 2-0 triumph as Lionel Messi’s wait for a major international trophy goes on.
The match was played at the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte, where Brazil suffered a humiliating 7-1 defeat to Germany at the 2014 World Cup.
But that ghost has been lifted five years on and this Selecao side are in a great position to win their first Copa America crown since 2007. They will face either Chile or Peru in the final on Sunday.
Goalkeeper Alisson Becker has been in outstanding form at the tournament – having yet to concede a goal in five matches at the finals so far.
The Liverpool man has actually kept clean sheets in his last NINE matches for club and country or 846 minutes.
846 – Brazil’s Alisson has kept a clean sheet in each of his last nine games in all competitions (846 minutes, including club and national team); he last conceded playing for Liverpool against Newcastle (Salomón Rondón, 54′), on May 4th. Wall.#CopaAmerica pic.twitter.com/p2oDSsirFp
