Copa America Semi-final : Peru 0-2 Uruguay

Luis Suarez scored twice to give Uruguay a 2-0 win over Peru and a place in the Copa America final.

Suarez scored the opener in the 52nd minutes after Peru goalkeeper Raul Fernandez spilled a speculative Diego Forlan shot. Suarez then ran onto a long pass, before rounding Fernandez, to roll in the simplest of second goals just five minutes later.

Peru's chance of getting back into the match probably ended soon after when skipper Juan Manuel Vargas was shown a straight red card after he elbowed Sebastian Coates in the face.
