Buenos Aires, Argentina, July 23:  A surprising Copa America will end Sunday with favorite Uruguay playing scrappy Paraguay for South America's most important trophy.

Uruguay is trying to become the tournament's most successful team, while Paraguay is looking to prove it deserves the title despite reaching the final without a victory in five matches.

The final game at Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires will cap a shocking tournament, in which Argentina and Brazil didn't even make it past the quarterfinals. Venezuela and Peru, the usual underdogs, stayed longer than the powerhouses in the competition.

Uruguay, a World Cup semifinalist last year, has a chance to win a record 15th Copa America title, one more than host Argentina. AP
