Copa America Final 2011, Uruguay Vs. Paraguay: Luis Suarez Gives Uruguay 1-0 Lead

It doesn't take long for Uruguay to get that goal they were denied by the Nestor Ortigoza handball in the first few minites, and it's that man Luis Suarez who breaks the deadlock, latching onto a ball lofted over the top of the Paraguay defence, cutting back to lose his marker, and sending in a deflected effort off Justo Villar's right hand post and in. The goalkeeper was absolutely hopeless to stop that one.

For all of their faults in previous games, Paraguay aren't actually playing too badly at the moment. They've made some nice plays - in the Uruguay half, no less - and that's led to a weakening of the defence and thus a goal conceded. They've been a very negative side so far in this tournament, but that's only because if they don't play like that, they're going to be in trouble.

Anyway. It's Uruguay up by one in the 2011 Copa America final, and they look pretty comfortably in control.
