To decide who will qualify for the Copa América grand final, Uruguay and Colombia faced each other this Wednesday (10) at the Bank of America Stadium, in Charlotte, United States.

In a disputed and very lively game, the Colombian team beat Uruguay by the minimum score and will face Argentina in the grand final of the competition.

How was the confrontation?

The match was fast-paced, with both teams marking each other well, which made it difficult for the attacking players to define themselves in good conditions. Darwin Núñez was the Uruguayan player who most troubled the Colombian defense, almost opening the scoring on three occasions.

As Muñoz was already on a yellow card, the referee issued a second card, resulting in the right-back being sent off.

Second time

With an extra player, Uruguay tried to impose their game, however, Colombia had their marking well fitted in and occupied the spaces on the field well.

After receiving a good ball from Ugarte, in the 25th minute Luis Suárez tried to equalize by finishing inside the area, the ball capriciously hit the post and went out.

Aware of the need for a goal, La Celeste went forward pressing for possession, with Valverde wasting yet another good opportunity by finishing off target.
