Copa America 2024 live updates: Uruguay down to 10 men against Brazil

Must read

The 2024 Copa América tournament reaches a crucial stage on Saturday, with a highly anticipated quarterfinal clash between football giants Brazil and Uruguay in Las Vegas.

Brazil’s quarterfinal journey took an unexpected turn, as it will be without star player Vinicius Junior, who has been sidelined due to a series of yellow cards in the group stage. The absence of the outspoken Real Madrid forward, who has been critical of referees and officials, is a significant loss that could potentially reshape the game’s dynamics.

Uruguay will enter the quarterfinal match with a morale boost after its 1-0 victory over the United States in Kansas City. The win, which led to the early exit of the USMNT from the tournament on its home turf, was marked by a goal from Mathias Olivera. The goal, initially under dispute, was eventually validated by the video assistant referee, adding a dramatic twist to the match.

After review, the referees determined Nández’s hit to Rodrygo’s ankle was worthy of a red card. Uruguay will play the rest of the game with 10 men.

Nahitan Nández was shown the yellow after fouling Brazil’s Rodrygo hard with a foot to his right ankle. The foul is under review for upgrade to a red card.

Rodrigo Bentancur entered the game for Nicolás de la Cruz shortly after his yellow card.

Each side was shown its second yellow of the match. For Uruguay, it was Nicolás de la Cruz on a foul on Rodrygo in the 60th minute. For Brazil, it was João Gomes on Nahitan Nández in the 64th minute.

Manuel Ugarte was called for a hand ball and was shown the second yellow card of the game.

The sides have split possession nearly perfectly in the first half. Brazil’s had better chances to score but have yet to capitalize on them. Uruguay’s playing very physically with 13 fouls to Brazil’s five after the first 45 minutes of action.

Lucas Paquetá fouled Nicolás de la Cruz to stop a chance for Uruguay and was shown the yellow for it.

Ronald Araújo had to leave the pitch due to injury. José Giménez came on in his place and donned the captain’s armband.

Brazil’s youngest player, Endrick, couldn’t find Raphinha in one of the team’s best chances to score so far.

We’re halfway through the first half and Uruguay’s already been called for seven fouls to Brazil’s one.

A cross brought the ball into the box for Uruguay but a clearing kick knocked it away from the box. A Manuel Ugarte pass set up Darwin Núñez for a header but his attempt was blocked well over the crossbar.

One of the early chances at goal saw Raphinha fire a shot from outside the box but Uruguay’s Sergio Rochet blocked it.

The two South American squads will play for a chance to take on Colombia in the semifinals next Wednesday.

Uruguay

Uruguay, the second-smallest nation at the Copa America, has a rich history of soccer success. The country has clinched two World Cup victories and 15 Copa America titles. What’s more, Uruguay is currently on a red-hot four-game winning streak, with its last loss dating back to March 2024, when it was defeated 2-1 by Ivory Coast in an international friendly.

Brazil

Brazil’s recent performances in the Copa America have been nothing short of spectacular. It has qualified in all 47 tournaments and has won nine titles, including the 2019 championship. Its runner-up finish in 2021, although not a victory, is a testament to its consistent form and the excitement they bring to the tournament.

The rivalry between Brazil and Uruguay is a saga of intense battles on the football field. They have clashed 79 times, with Brazil leading the series with 40 wins to Uruguay’s 22, and 17 games ending in a draw.
