Cavani scores as Uruguay qualify for quarter-finals

Edinson Cavani was on target as Uruguay beat Bolivia 2-0 to qualify for the quarter-finals of Copa America.

The Manchester United striker had spurned a number of chances before he converted Facundo Torres' cross with 11 minutes remaining. This is his 52nd goal for Uruguay.

Uruguay had earlier gone ahead when Bolivia defender Jairo Quinteros turned Giorgian de Arrascaeta's cross into his own net shortly before half-time.

The win moves them up to third in Group A with four points from three games.

Oscar Tabarez's side play Paraguay in their final group game in Rio on Monday.

Elsewhere in Group A, Newcastle United midfielder Miguel Almiron scored one and set up another as Paraguay beat Chile 2-0.

The result means that Bolivia cannot reach the knockout stage with Argentina, Paraguay, Chile and Uruguay all qualifying for the quarter-finals.
