Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino all started in Brazil’s final group game of Copa America as the group leaders managed a 1-1 draw with Ecuador on Sunday night.

Though Firmino was subbed off on the 63rd minute, his two Liverpool teammates played the full match.

Alisson was unlucky not to maintain a clean sheet, though the match was ultimately meaningless as Brazil had already secured first place in Group B.

The situation of the game meant that both sides found a draw suited them; as such, the match provided a chance to rest many Brazil regulars and the host nation appeared somewhat unbalanced in large spells.

The match itself led to few clear-cut chances for either side, though Fabinho and Firmino both comported themselves well throughout.

Brazil will face either Chile or Uruguay on Friday in the competition’s quarter-finals. The draw takes place later on Monday.
