Uruguay beat Brazil 4-2 in a penalty shootout on Saturday after a bruising 0-0 draw to march into the semi-finals of the Copa America where they will face Colombia. Sergio Rochet saved Brazil's first penalty in the shootout from Eder Militao while his teammate Douglas Luiz hit the post. Brazil keeper Alisson Becker denied Jose Gimenez but Manuel Ugarte buried the decisive spot kick as Uruguay advanced.

In a bruising encounter with 41 fouls from both teams, Uruguay's Darwin Nunez had the best chance when he missed a close-range header while Brazil skipper Raphinha saw his effort on a counter-attack thwarted by goalkeeper Sergio Rochet.
