Peru set up a Copa America semi-final clash against Chile, with Paolo Guerrero netting a hat-trick to deliver a comprehensive last eight 3-1 win over Bolivia.
Ricardo Gareca’s side dominated throughout and were good value for their lead when Guerrero scored his first after 20 minutes. And the Flamengo striker doubled his side’s lead with a composed finish on the counter attack just three minutes later.
And Guerrero capped his side’s quarter-final victory with a third after 74 minutes, making the most of a slack Bolivian pass along the defensive line to slot home. Bolivia clawed one back from the penalty spot, with Marcelo Moreno converting, but it proved to be nothing more than just consolation.
Peru will now face hosts Chile in the semi final of the competiton.
