Copa America : Chile 1-0 Peru

Chile will progress to the Copa America quarter-finals as Group C winners after an own goal from Andre Carrillo in injury time saw Chile edge past Peru in Mendoza.

Substitute Carrillo was unlucky to see a defensive corner deflect off his knee and into his own net to give Chile three points after both sides had been reduced to 10 men at the Estadio Malvinas Argentinas.

The game meant little as both sides are guaranteed of progression - so both teams were able to rest players - Chile made six changes to their starting line-up and Peru nine.

Final standings will be determined after Uruguay play Mexico in the final group game.
