Chile and Uruguay pushed the limits in Copa America clash that turned ugly

SANTIAGO, Chile -- Mauricio Isla's late strike means Chile are now 90 minutes away from the Copa America final. But La Roja's 1-0 quarterfinal win over Uruguay will be most remembered for an act which redefines gamesmanship and skullduggery and two managers at opposite poles each steadfastly clinging to their view of the game.

In football, as in most things, you can either do what most do -- try to do it better. Or you can be different, come up with something new and hope it will give you an edge....

Chile and Uruguay Copa America quarterfinal will be decided in midfield

Chile will look to win a Copa America quarterfinal for the first time, when they face defending champions Uruguay in the last eight on Wednesday.

Chile scored 10 goals in the group phase of the Copa America. No other team managed more than four. This is good news for a team that went into the championship worried about not taking enough of its chances. But it also might give something of a false impression.

Leonardo Veliz, 1974 World Cup veteran and one of the most respected voices in Chilean football, certainly thinks so.

"The Chile that qualified did not convince me," he wrote on Tuesday in his column for the newspaper, La Tercera. ...

Gerardo Martino's shrewd tactical tinkering helps Argentina pip Uruguay

ESPN FC's Craig Burley was not impressed with Uruguay's tactics late in the match against Argentina, where he felt Uruguay should have pushed for an equaliser far earlier.

The old rivals rose to the occasion. The match between Argentina and Uruguay may not have offered up all of the goals of the previous night's action in the Copa America, but there was quality and drama to the end as Argentina held off a late Uruguayan rally to win by the lone goal.

Argentina coach Gerardo Martino had prepared a trap for his opponents. Lionel Messi dropped deep, into a position where, like some general of old, he could survey the battlefield in search of the enemy's weak point. He...
