COPA AMERICA — Argentina 1-0 Uruguay: Aguero’s header enough to lift La Albiceleste (video)


In a game with massive firepower, only one man could find the back of the net.

Sergio Aguero headed in a cross from Manchester City teammate Pablo Zabaleta to give Argentina a 1-0 lead in the 56th minute, and it would last as La Albiceleste joined Paraguay at the top of Copa America’s Group B.

Uruguay will need to beat Paraguay on June 20 in order to get into the top two, or draw Paraguay and hope Jamaica beats Argentina by a pair of goals or more.

The match was even on chances, but Argentina saw three-quarters possession.

Argentina manager Tata Martino was ejected from the game in the 31st minute.
