Peru have succeeded in reaching the quarter-finals of the Copa América 2007, after they drew 2-2 with Bolivia at the Metropolitano de Mérida Stadium last night. Pizarro was named ‘man of the match’, as he had scored a double. PSV striker <L CODE="C01">Jefferson Farfán</L> sustained an injury and was taken off at half time. The extent of his injury is unknown. Peru had to come from behind twice to cancel out Bolivia’s goals. Cláudio Pizarro headed home a second equaliser five minutes from time, ensuring a place among the final eight. Hosts Venezuela drew 0-0 with Uruguay in their final Group A game. With this result both sides progress to the quarter-finals, along with Peru. Venezuela meet the ‘second best placed team’ of the three Groups in the quarter-final of the Copa América and Peru will face the ‘best number 3’. The first two quarter-finals are scheduled for Saturday 7 July. Mexico take on Chili on Wednesday night and Brazil, with Alex, face Ecuador, with Edison Mendez, in Puerto La Cruz to decide who goes through from Group B.
