Brazil: First team to miss every PK in Copa America shootout

I really hope Brazil fans didn't mock Argentina too much for getting knocked out of Copa America after a penalty shootout against Uruguay on Saturday, because on Sunday the same thing happened to their side. But worse.

According to Opta, Brazil became the first team to ever miss all of its shots in a Copa America penalty shootout with its abysmal effort against Paraguay on Sunday. Paraguay won the shootout 2-0 since Brazil missed four attempts, including Elano's moonshot to start things off -- this after the game was 0-0 following extra time.

So with Colombia, Argentina and Brazil all out of the tournament in the quarterfinals, it looks like Uruguay might be the new favorite. But at this rate, who knows. Maybe it will be Peru.
