Nobody will remember the 90 minutes of football — if you can call it that — that was played on the Allegiant Stadium pitch in Las Vegas Saturday night.>>CONTINUE FULL READING HERE

That’s for the best, as there was nothing memorable about the scoreless quarterfinal between Brazil and Uruguay at the 2024 Copa America.

Instead, the most memorable part of this classic South American clash was the ensuing penalty shootout, as Uruguay advanced thanks in part to a miss by Douglas Luiz from the spot. Both goalkeepers made one save in the shootout, and thus it was Luiz’s miss that put Brazil in too big of a hole to escape.

The match itself was an utterly putrid foul-fest, as Uruguay in particular were more than happy to use their physicality to out-muscle Brazil. Marcelo Bielsa’s side, who have at times in this tournament looked free-flowing and brilliant, managed to generate just one shot on target juxtaposed against an enormous 26 fouls. They deservingly falling a man down after Nahitan Nandez was sent off with 17 minutes to go for an ankle-breaking studs up challenge on Rodrygo.

Instead of punishing Uruguay for their insolence, Brazil played right into their opponents’ hands, committing 15 fouls of their own and failing to capitalize on the late man advantage. With 17-year-old Endrick starting up front for the suspended Vinicius Jr, they couldn’t get anything going up front.

In the shootout, Eder Militao saw his effort saved by Sergio Rochet before Luiz’s miss, and while Alisson kept his side in it by denying Jose Gimenez, it was too little too late as

Round 4

Uruguay — Jose Gimenez, Uruguay’s captain who came off the bench early for the injured Ronald Araujo, can win it for his country! He steps up and…SAVED! Alisson gives Brazil a lifeline as he dives to his right and makes the save on a poor effort!

Brazil — Now Gabriel Martinelli has to bury his chance for Brazil to stay alive, and he…SCORES! It’s well struck to the taker’s right!

Uruguay — Now for Uruguay it’s Giorgian de Arrascaeta who steps up and…SCORES! What a blast! It’s thumped into the top-left corner, there’s no way Alisson can get to that!

Brazil — For Brazil it’s Douglas Luiz, who…MISSES! It’s off the left post! Sergio Rochet had dove the right way, but he wasn’t required as Luiz can’t hit the target!

The coin toss is won by Uruguay who will take their penalties first!

Uruguay — Real Madrid star Federico Valverde steps up to take the first effort for Uruguay…SCORES! He buries the effort inside the left post.

HIGHLIGHT: Watch in USA | Watch in Canada

END OF REGULATION: Brazil 0-0 Uruguay

That’s enough of that. Some of the most hideous football in recent memory comes to an end, and we’ll go to a penalty shootout? Who wants the semifinal spot more? At this point, it’s hard to tell.

90th min: Five minutes of added time are shown, which seems a bit light, but nobody’s complaining. This has been a truly horrible match which deserves a swift death.

85th min: Chance, Brazil! Endrick has a go and forces Sergio Rochet into a save, but the contact wasn’t of the proper quality to beat the Uruguay goalkeeper! He scuffs the hit and can’t get any height on the ball, leaving it to just a simple scoop for Rochet.

Two more changes for Brazil as Evanilson and Gabriel Martinelli will enter, replacing Rodrygo and Bruno Guimaraes. You wonder if penalties have anything to do with this change, given there’s no extra-time in the Copa America quarterfinals.

81st min: Finally, Brazil make their first three changes as Raphinha exits alongside his two yellow carded countrymates Joao Gomes, and Lucas Paqueta. Andreas Pereira, Douglas Luiz, and Savio have come on.

78th min: There is no extra-time in the Copa America, so Brazil know they only have a short time with which to take advantage of this man advantage. For whatever reason, Dorival Junior was going to make his first substitution of the match but decides against it, leaving his starting XI on the field without introducing fresh legs.

Uruguay respond by bringing on Guillermo Varela and Giorgian de Arrascaeta, replacing Darwin Nunez and Facundo Pellistri in a clearly defensive change from Marcelo Bielsa.

72nd min: RED CARD, URUGUAY! A yellow card has been shown to Nahitan Nandez who fouls Rodrygo very late. The Real Madrid star has been hacked repeatedly in this game, and needs treatment after this one. It’s worrisome for Rodrygo, as the studs of Nandez caused his ankle to roll.

It’s a blatant red card, in truth, and sure enough the VAR official has recommended a pitchside review. It doesn’t take long for the review to be completed and a red card shown to Nandez! Uruguay have been playing on a knife edge all match, and they’ve finally been punished!

65th min: Joao Gomes is booked for absolutely pummeling Nahitan Nandez late. It’s the 30th foul of the match, nearly one every two minutes through a little over an hour. Hardly anything of note has happened in this game other than the fouling.

Nicolas de la Cruz is subbed off for Rodrigo Betancur, protecting the former from picking up another yellow card.

59th min: Nicolas de la Cruz is wrestled to the ground by Joao Gomes, and reacts angrily but quickly cools. It is the 25th foul of the match (18 by Uruguay, seven by Brazil).

Moments later, de la Cruz is booked for fouling Rodrygo hard after he had sent another Uruguayan for a hot dog with a silky move.

51st min: Finally, on their 16th foul, a Uruguay player has been booked as Manuel Ugarte picks up a yellow card for a handball.

Moments later, though, the Brazil bench goes berserk as Rodrygo is blatantly fouled just outside the penalty area but no whistle is blown. The referees have let far too much go in this match, and Brazil have largely been the ones to feel aggreived.

48th min: Whoa, a howitzer from Federico Valverde forces Alisson to make his first save of the match. The Real Madrid man rifles a shot on net while connecting with a bouncing ball, but puts his powerful effort right at the Brazil goalkeeper. Valverde’s known for venomous long-distance efforts!

2nd half kickoff: The second half is under way. We’ll see if a football match will be played in Las Vegas tonight, or if these two teams just continue to foul each other endlessly in an effort to see this one out to penalties.

There was a halftime substitution for Uruguay as Matias Vina is replaced by Sebastian Caceres, moving Mathias Olivera to left-back. There were questions about Vina’s fitness for this match.

HALFTIME: A truly hideous and awful 45 minutes of “football” — if you can even call it that — has come to an end. Neither team showed any desire to get forward and play attacking football, preferring to just commit fouls in response to fouls committed on them.

At the end of it all, there were a total of nine shots between the two teams, while 18 fouls — twice as much — were whistled. It’s a wonder that only one yellow card was shown by the referee.

Here’s to hoping either side decides they want to play football in the second half, because another 45 minutes like that could be classified as torture.

39th min: Finally, the game’s first yellow card is shown to Lucas Paqueta who scythes down Nicolas de la Cruz in transition. Brazil’s bench is incensed, but that’s a blatant booking as there was clearly no play made on the ball.

35th min: Chance, Brazil! Right down the other end after the Nunez miss, Brazil have a big opportunity go begging too as Raphinha is clean through on goal as he gets by Jose Gimenez, but sees his shot saved well by Sergio Rochet!

34th min: Chance, Uruguay! Darwin Nunez has put a header over the crossbar! It’s a bad miss as the Liverpool forward was through on goal, but the cross from the right was just a bit behind him and he couldn’t quite contort his body properly to get the contact.

32nd min: Oh no, this is a real concern for Uruguay. Star defender Ronald Araujo is down holding the back of his right leg. This could be a real problem, as it appears to potentially be a hamstring issue for the Barcelona defender, who’s had muscle injury issues across his career.

The Uruguay trainer signals to the bench he’ll need a substitute, and Araujo’s night is done. A brutal blow for Uruguay as Jose Gimenez will enter in his place, taking the captain’s armband in the process.

28th min: Chance, Brazil! Oh my, Brazil are almost gifted the opening goal but Endrick’s back-heel for Raphinha doesn’t connect! The 17-year-old is fed through on goal by a poor back-pass from Matias Vina, and instead of taking it himself he tries to play in Raphinha, but the ball bobbles off his feet and is cleared!

24th min: Federico Valverde has a chance to play in a teammate amidst a strong Uruguay counter-attack, but with his cross blocked, he commits a foul trying to reach the rebound. Uruguay have committed a whopping seven fouls to this point, compared to Brazil’s one. The Brazil bench is up in arms about getting a Uruguay player booked for persistent fouling.

Then moments later Facundo Pellistri is fouled by Joao Gomes after a high Brazil turnover, but amazingly no yellow card is produced for that challenge either. The longer this referee lets things go without punishment, the more players are going to test the limits.

19th min: Chance, Uruguay! Two chances for Uruguay on a pair of successive corners! Darwin Nunez’s header is on target but takes a deflection wide, and then Matias Olivera heads over the crossbar with the next delivery! Uruguay have had a ton of early pressure but have yet to find the net.

17th min: There’s an off-ball incident for the referee to sort out as Ronald Araujo of Barcelona clatters Endrick from behind with a dirty cheap shot. Raphinha, protecting his Brazil teammate, then responds by pushing Araujo, who is his club teammate.

The referee has a stern talking to with both Araujo and Raphinha, and both will likely be on thin ice moving forward.

14th min: Another foul by Nicolas de la Cruz, this time just a few yards outside the top of the penalty area, gives Brazil a dangerous free-kick from nearly the same spot Raphinha scored from earlier in the tournament. This time his delivery clips the wall and heads out for a corner, and the ensuing set-piece is punched clear by Sergio Rochet.

12th min: Brazil just cannot get out of their own half. Uruguay haven’t managed to put things together just yet, but they’re starting to cook up front. Marquinhos and Alisson have taken an enormous amount of goal kicks so far.

Nicolas de la Cruz gets a stone-cold stare from the referee after fouling Eder Militao while pressing high.

7th min: Argentine referee Dario Herrera is very demonstratively conversing with players from both teams indicating he won’t hesitate to punish persistent fouling.

3rd min: As expected, this match has begun with an extremely high intensity. These are two teams with the highest work rates in South American football, and that’s playing out early. Uruguay are pressing very high and causing problems at the back for Brazil!

Kickoff: They’re under way in Sin City! A heavyweight battle for a Copa America semifinal spot, as Uruguay and Brazil clash. It’s quite early for a meeting between top South American sides in this competition!
Brazil vs. Uruguay: Pre-match commentary, analysis, more

15 mins to kickoff: This is a huge match for such an early stage in the Copa America knockout bracket. Unfortunately for these two teams, the tournament draw created a very lopsided bracket — Uruguay, Colombia, and Brazil all on the same side while Argentina have very little to challenge them on the other side. It means the team that reaches the final will have earned their chance to dethrone the reigning World Cup champions!

30 mins to kickoff: After watching Colombia tear Panama to shreds in the earlier game today, they’ll be rueing their inability to top the Group D standings and secure a less impressive opponent for the quarterfinals. It could be their early undoing — Uruguay have been beaten just twice since their early exit from the 2022 World Cup.

45 mins to kickoff: Of course, Vinicius is not the only player missing from the Brazil ranks. Neymar Jr has not even made the tournament. The Al Hilal man was injured back in October and did not recover in time to make the squad. But it’s not like the Selecao are short of forward options. The one to benefit tonight is teenage sensation Endrick, who is already being touted as the next Brazilian superstar.

The 17-year-old has scored important late goals off the bench against England, Spain, and Mexico across his young career, but has been unable to net in his three Copa America substitute appearances.

1 hour to kickoff: The lineups for this match are in. For Brazil, it’s a first international start for young Endrick confirmed, and there are no surprises from head coach Dorvial Junior.

For Uruguay, Marcelo Bielsa made no changes to his lineup for a mostly meaningless game against the United States in the group finale, so there was no way he would alter things for this game. Sure enough, he’s stuck with his group yet again, with the only change a forced one due to an injury to winger Max Araujo, with Cristian Olivera entering the lineup.

1 hour 30 mins to kick: Vinicius Jr. is suspended for Brazil in this match thanks to his two yellow cards picked up in the group stage. Normally, you’d say a Ballon d’Or candidate missing for their national team is a truly notable absence — and it is — but Vinicius, incredibly, has just three international goals in his career despite over 30 caps. He hasn’t been able to replicate his incredible club form at the international level. What can Brazil do without him against one of the most in-form South American sides?

2 hours before kickoff: Two of the three most successful teams in Copa America history face off for the right to a place in the semifinals. Will it be Brazil or Uruguay who progress to the final four?

Brazil will play without Vinicius Junior, who is suspended due to yellow card accumulation. This sees 17-year-old Endrick starting for the first time in his international career, with Rodrygo shifting to the flank.

Savio, Gabriel Martinelli, and Pepe were vying for the other attacking spot, but it’s unsurprisingly handed to the Barcelona veteran Raphinha. Left-back Guilherme Arana replaces Wendell at left-back, while midfielders Douglas Luiz, Andreas Pereira, and Ederson are all left on the bench in favor of Joao Gomes.

Injured duo Neymar and Ederson are not with Brazil this summer as they recover.

Brazil subs (14): Bento (GK), Rafael (GK), Gabriel, Bremer, Beraldo, Wendell, Couto, Pereira, D. Luiz, Ederson, Pepe, Evanilson, Martinelli, Savio.

Uruguay will miss attacker Maximiliano Araujo after he was stretchered off with a neck injury against the USA. Cristian Olivera, who replaced him in that game, also now enters the starting lineup opposite Facundo Pellistri up front with Nicolas de la Cruz,and Darwin Nunez also in the attack.

Coach Marcelo Bielsa was expected to keep the rest of his lineup unchanged, with Federico Valverde and Manuel Ugarte in midfield and a four-man defence comprising Nahitan Nandez, Ronald Araujo, Mathias Olivera, and Matias Vina.

Uruguay starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Rochet (GK) — Nandez, R. Araujo, M. Olivera, Vina — Ugarte, Valverde — Pellistri, De la Cruz, C. Olivera — Nunez.
