Buenos Aires, Jul 19: Uruguay eclipsed Brazil and Argentina at the 2010 World Cup, and a year later it's the same story with the team again in the semifinals—this time, part of the topsy-turvy final four of the Copa America.

In a surprising South American championship, with Brazil and Argentina being ousted in the quarterfinals, Uruguay's performance isn't exactly a shock. The country of 3.5 million has won the Copa America 14 times, including the first in 1916 against Argentina, and is a two-time World Cup winner.

Uruguay faces Peru on Tuesday in La Plata, with Paraguay against Venezuela on Wednesday in Mendoza. Sunday's final is in Buenos Aires. AP
