Las Vegas. Manuel Ugarte scored on the fifth and final penalty kick, ensuring Uruguay a place in the semi-finals of the Copa America football tournament by defeating Brazil 4-2 here on Saturday. Both the teams failed to score in the stipulated time and then in extra time. There were 41 fouls in this match, which is the highest in any match of the tournament. During this, only four shots were taken towards the goal. Uruguay’s Nahitan Nandez was shown a red card in the 74th minute for a dangerous tackle against Rodrigo, but the Brazilian team could not take advantage of playing with 10 players of the opposing team.

In the shoot-out, goalkeeper Sergio Rochet saved Eder Militao’s shot while Douglas Luigi’s penalty kick hit the goal post, giving Uruguay a 3-1 lead. Goalkeeper Alisson Becker kept Brazil in the match by saving Uruguay’s Jose Maria Gimenez’s penalty kick in the fourth attempt, but Ugarte scored a goal in the next attempt and ensured his team’s victory.
