Dani Alves scores sensational Tiki-taka goal for Brazil

Brazilian defender Dani Alves scored one goal and produced another two assists in Brazil's 5-0 demolition of Peru on Saturday.

The 36-year-old got on the end of a sweeping move that ripped through the Peruvian defence with a series of one touch passes before Alves rifled the ball past the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.

The victory gives Brazil two wins from three group stages games in the Copa America but for Alves he used the opportunity to announce after the game that he would be leaving PSG.

The right-back confirmed the news on his Instagram account with the message:

“Today I close another cycle in my life, a cycle of victory, learning and experiences.

"I would like to thank the PSG family for the opportunity to together build a page in the history of this club.

“I would like to thank all the staff for their affection, respect and complicity from day one … you make this club a little more special.

“It was two years of resilience and continuous reinventing to fulfil my mission, but in life everything has a beginning, a middle and an end and now the time has come to put that final point here.

“I apologise if at any point I was not up to the pitch, I apologise if at some point I made a mistake, I just tried to give my best.”
