Julio Baptista scored in the fourth minute and Brazil went on to a 3-0 victory over Argentina on Sunday to win the Copa America for the second consecutive time. Roberto Ayala had an own-goal and Dani Alves scored his first of the tournament to secure Brazil's eighth title in the South American championship. It was the second straight time Brazil and Argentina had met in the final, with Brazil prevailing three years ago on penalties. This time, Argentina was intent on reclaiming the crown and winning a record 15th title. It brought its full national team while Brazil arrived with a second-choice side after several of its regulars, like Ronaldinho and Kaka, asked to be excused.
