Uruguay celebrates victory in Copa America final

A 3-0 defeat of Paraguay gave Uruguay its first Copa America championship title since 1995.

The semi-finalists at last year's World Cup once again surpassed the performance of such continental powers as Brazil and Argentina.

Uruguay has also set a new record. Its team has now won the Copa America 15 times - putting them one ahead of Argentina as the continent's new footballing leader.
