BRASILIA: Guido Rodriguez scored the only goal of the game in Argentina’s 1-0 win over Uruguay in the Copa America here, just now.
The win lifted Argentina to the top of Group A alongside Chile with four points while Uruguay remained without any points. Argentina and Uruguay share 29 Copa titles between them.
Six -time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi had a chance to open the scoring as early as the seventh minute but his left -footed effort was saved by goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.
Muslera once again saved the Uruguay goal when Cristian Romero jumped high to header a Rodrigo De Paul pass.
Argentina opened the scoring in the 13th minute after Messi made a pass to Rodriguez who headed in the ball past Muslera.
Uruguay tried to bounce back but no movement was able to test Emiliano Martinez in the Argentine goal.
