Argentina, Batista part ways

Wednesday, 27th July 2011 1:15pm
Sergio Batista has stepped down from his role as the Argentinian coach after the 2011 Copa America hosts failed to go beyond the quarter-finals.

Argentina were beaten by eventual winners Uruguay in a penalty shoot-out but they played most of that match with a one-man advantage.

The hosts only win was against Costa Rica where they won 3-nil.

Worringly for the 2014 World Cup qualifying, Argentina failed to beat South American opposition in the tournament.

Here is some of the stats for Batista's Argentina in the group phase:

Uruguay nets 15th Copa title

Monday, 25th July 2011 11:38pm
Uruguay made history by being the first team in South America to win the Copa America title 15 times when they beat Paraguay 3-nil in the final.

Uruguay were helped by two first half goals which were the first goals Paraguay had conceded in open play in the knockout phase.

Paraguay had reached the final having failed to win a match in open play and also having failed to score a single goal outside the group phase.
