Uruguay will face Peru in the Arena Fonte Nova of Salvador on Saturday, while Chile will play at Sao Paulo’s Arena Corinthians against Colombia on Friday. The Colombians have won all three of its matches and is yet to concede a goal in the tournament. Peru was thrashed 5-0 by Brazil on the weekend and advanced as one of the two best to finish their groups in third place.
Cavani’s goal came after a gentle header to the right of Chile goalkeeper Gabriel Arias, after a cross by Jonathan Rodriguez, who entered during the second half.
More than 58,000 fans at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, mostly cheering for Chile, were already accepting a goalless result when Uruguay scored the winning goal.
“It could have been another result, this was a close match that was hard fought as if every ball was the last,” said Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez. “But that is Cavani. He never stops. Today he moved between different functions throughout the match, but his main characteristic he will never lose. He is a specialist, a goal scorer.”
The match in Rio was far less tense than the last three of one of South American soccer’s most lively rivalries, ending with Cavani’s second goal in this year’s Copa America.
With the match at 0-0 in the quarterfinals of the 2015 Copa America in Chile, Chile defender Gonzalo Jara provoked Cavani by pushing a finger into his rear. Chile prevailed with a late goal and went on to win the tournament.
