Chile earn point with Uruguay
Chile came back in their Copa America Group C clash with Uruguay on Friday evening to earn a 1-1 draw in Mendoza.
Alexis Sanchez, the subject of much transfer debate around Europe, scored the equaliser on 64 minutes to cancel out Alvaro Pereira's earlier goal.
The first-half began with plenty of end-to-end action, but neither side could make the breakthrough in what appeared to be shaping as another Copa America stalemate.
Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez, the hero from the previous match against Peru, both hit shots wide of the target early on as Uruguay looked to make the most of their dominance.
Strangely, perhaps the best chance of the opening stanza came from Mauricio Isla's charge-down from an attempted clearance which ricocheted off the bar in a lucky escape for Uruguay.
The match then came to life less than 10 minutes after the half-time interval when Perreira slotted home from close range after some fine lead-up play in the penalty area by Liverpool striker Suarez.
Birmingham's Jean Beausejour made similar strong run 11 minutes later to tee-up Sanchez to level matters. The Udinese winger, thought to be on the verge of a move to Barcelona, then had the chance to win it late on, but goalkeeper Nestor Fernando Muslera made the save to earn his side a point.
Paolo Guerrero was once again the hero as he scored a late goal to hand Peru a gritty 1-0 victory over Mexico.
After a lacklustre first-half, it seemed that it may not be Peru's day as they squandered a host of chances after the half-time break. Juan Vargas hit the woodwork twice and Guerrero was also guilty of spurning numerous scoring opportunities.
But the Hamburg striker made amends with seven minutes remaining to finish off some dazzling work from Diego Reyes inside the area to give Peru a deserved lead over the youthful Mexican side.
The Peruvians claimed a 1-1 draw with Uruguay in their first game, giving them a share of top spot in the group alongside Chile. Mexico, meanwhile, remain rooted to the bottom of the standings with zero points, while World Cup semi-finalists Uruguay sit third on two points.
