Uruguay has not yet managed to score its first victory in the Copa America. They today equalized with the team of Chile with the result 1-1. Eduardo Vargas (26) scored for Chile, while Luis Suarez (67) equalized in the second half. Chile leads Group A with five points but has one more game than Argentina to play tonight against Paraguay. Meanwhile, Uruguay won the first point tonight.

The fight to win Group A in the Copa America has heated up, until today Uruguay did not manage to defeat Chile, who are currently in first place in this group.

The Chileans were much better in the first half of this match and after some action they managed to score the first goal in the 26th minute of the match.

Brereton would follow Eduardo Vargas who would place the ball in the net for the first goal in this challenge. After conceding the goal, Uruguay tried several times to equalize the result but failed.

In the second half, Uruguay started better and Cavani and Luis Suarez were several times close to scoring.

However, the goal would come after an interruption, where from the corner kick the ball goes to Suarez but we have an own goal after it was diverted by Arthuro Vidal. It was initially thought that the goal was scored by Suarez, but that the shooting showed that we are dealing with an own goal.

The equalizer came in the 67th minute and Chile immediately after the draw could have taken the lead if Luciano Arriagada had been more attentive in front of goalkeeper Muslera in the 79th minute.

After this case Cavani would have an ideal opportunity to score in the 84th minute, if the ball passes near the vertical column of the right side of Claudio Bravo.

Suarez would have the last chance to score in this match in the first extra minute of the match, but that ball just did not end up in the net.

After this draw, Chile passes to the first place with 5 points from three matches played, where there is a victory and two draws while Uruguay wins the first point from two games played. Last week they lost to Argentina 1-0.

Argentina plays tonight against Paraguay, a match which starts at two in the morning.
