Uruguay win record Copa America title
URUGUAY won a record 15th South American title today with a convincing 3-0 victory over Paraguay in the final of the 2011 Copa America.
With favourites Argentina and Brazil both failing to advance beyond the quarter finals, Uruguay left little doubt about which was the top team in the region.
Luis Suarez opened the scoring after 12 minutes and Diego Forlan added a second goal just before the break.
Suarez and Forlan then teamed up on the third goal in the 90th minute to cap an impressive performance.
Uruguay took charge of the match early and almost scored in the opening two minutes when a corner kick was headed on goal by Diego Lugano, forcing a good reaction stop from goalkeeper Justo Villar.
