Copa America: Peru beat Uruguay on penalties to reach semi-finals

Luis Suarez missed the only penalty as Uruguay were beaten in a shootout by Peru in the Copa America quarter-final.

Suarez had a goal disallowed for offside in normal time before missing the first penalty of the shootout, as Edison Flores struck the winning kick.

Edinson Cavani also had a goal ruled out as 15-time winners Uruguay failed to convert from their 12 shots at goal.

Peru now play Chile in the second semi-final on 4 July, after hosts Brazil face Argentina the night before.

Uruguay will rue two gilt-edge opportunities in normal time as both Cavani and captain Diego Godin smashed the ball over the bar from six yards out.

Peru failed to produce a single shot on target as veteran striker Paolo Guerrero went through on goal twice, only to be denied by two crucial Jose Gimenez challenges.
