Suarez, Uruguay can only look at themselves after Copa loss to Peru

A week ago Peru had just been mauled 5-0 by Brazil -- and they faced an anxious wait, depending on results in other groups to find out whether or not they had made it through to the last eight of the Copa America.

Seven days later, extraordinarily, they are in the last four.

Last Saturday their keeper Pedro Gallese was the villain, after a dismal display against Brazil. He is now the hero. His save from Luis Suarez was the decisive moment in the penalty shootout, eliminating Uruguay and sending...

Make way for the real stuff: The phony war of the Copa America group phase is over.

Bolivia and Ecuador make the shorter journey in some...

It's fair to say that Luis Suarez had an eventful night as Uruguay faced Chile in the Copa America on Monday (watch the tournament live on ESPN+).

The Group C match at Rio de Janeiro's world-famous Maracana stadium was played on the five-year anniversary of Suarez's equally...

Uruguay's Cavani gains a bit of revenge against 'old' foe Chile

The previous time Chile played in Rio's Maracana stadium was for a 2014 World Cup game against Spain. They won in style -- after a group of ticketless Chile fans had stormed their way through the press entrance.

Five years later Chile were back in numbers for their Copa America group stage match against Uruguay. Their fans made up the bulk of a near 50,000 crowd. Before the game the red-shirted masses applauded their players -- but jeered their coach, Reinaldo Rueda -- and they will probably jeer...

Japan's surprise draw shows Uruguay have some things to fix

Brazil drawing with Venezuela in Group A, Argentina's problems in Group B -- but Uruguay being held 2-2 by Japan in Group C is the biggest surprise so far in the 2019 Copa America.

The other guest side, Qatar, are at full strength, with the team that won the Asian title earlier this year. They are battle hardened, and clearly in a more advanced stage of preparation than many of their South American opponents. None of this applied to Japan versus Uruguay.

Firstly, because the Uruguayans are by no...
