Chille :  Paolo Guerrero fired Peru to a third place play-off victory over Paraguay to stay in the hunt for Copa America tournament top-scorer honours.

The Flamengo striker, top-scorer at the 2011 Copa America, on Friday bagged his fourth goal of this year’s tournament with a late strike as Peru completed a 2-0 victory.

The goal saw Guerrero join Chile’s Eduardo Vargas as joint top-scorer.

The 31-year-old’s 25th international goal has also edged him closer to overhauling Peru legend Teofilo Cubillas’s national record of 26 goals.

Peru’s other goal came from Andre Carrillo in the 48th minute.

Peru’s win saw them repeat their third place finish from the 2011 Copa America.
