Copa América 2011: Peru 0 - 2 Uruguy

Uruguay's players celebrate qualification for the final as Peru's resign themselves to the third-place playoff

On Tuesday night, Uruguay and Peru met in the first semi-final of the 2011 Copa América, and Uruguay ran out 2-0 winners thanks to a second half brace from Luis Suárez after some spirited Peruvian resistance in the first half. Juan Vargas was sent off for Peru late on for an elbow on Diego Lugano, but it was smiles all round for Uruguay, who after four straight semi-finals have made it through to the final at the Estadio Monumental on Sunday. The goals are right here.

    Sam, a star is born ! I figured they started that Brazilian clip with you in order to catch people’s attention. Yes, a Bowie throwback look, but thank goodness after the Ziggy Stardust days. I expect soon your “fame” will “grow” and we will all say-we knew him when.

    Of course if stardom doesn’t pan out, you can always find work as a mop or a car buffer ! Love you !:)

    sorry to be a stickler for correctness but the elbow was on Coates. However Lugano should have been sent off for an elbow on Guerrero just minutes before Vargas received his marching orders.
