Jesus was sent off for a second bookable offence in the 70th minute, but Richarlison kept his composure from the spot with seconds left, to win it for Brazil.

Despite missing Neymar through injury, Tite’s men have been a formidable force in this tournament, scoring 10 goals without conceding.

It is the first time they have won the competition since 2007.
