Copa America Final 2011, Uruguay Vs. Paraguay: Game Underway

The 2011 Copa Americ final between Uruguay and Paraguay has kicked off, with Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez getting us going for the men in light blue. It doesn't take long for Paraguay to press hard and recover the ball, but Uruguay recover and push forward. Some excellent work by Suarez sees him battle against the Paraguay back line and goalkeeper Justo Villar ensure that a corner is all the favourites earn.

From the corner, Diego Lugano leaps up and powers a header goalwards, a thumping effort barely kept out by Villar. The rebout, however, was goalbound - until, that is, a raised hand by Nestor Ortigoza saw the ball cleared to safety. There was, bizarrely, no penalty, and Paraguay were able to scramble clear. A breathtaking start to this game, eh? Uruguay should be ahead. Oh, and for everyone saying how ironic it is that Uruguay were denied a goal via handball on the line, in that game, Ghana were awarded a penalty. Which they missed. Anyway, still 0-0 so far.
