Argentina's

Argentina's players react after being defeated in a penalty shootout against Uruguay in their quarter-final soccer match at the Copa America in Santa Fe.

In one of the biggest shocks of the Copa America so far, the hosts Argentina were dumped out of the tournament after losing out on a penalty shootout against Uruguay.

It was 1-1 at the end of normal time, despite Argentina dominating majority of the game. Barcelona star Lionel Messi did his bit, scoring in the shootout and laying an assist on a platter for Gonzalo Higuain to equalize after Diego Perez had opened the scoring for Uruguay.

However, Perez didn't last on the field much longer as he was shown a second yellow card. Argentina's attacking quartet looked to make use of the extra space, but failed to break through, but through a combination of good defending and luck, Uruguay held on till full time and the end of extra time, taking the game into penalties.

All but one of the 10 taken penalties were scored, with Carlos Tevez missing his spot kick. It meant Uruguay proceeded into the semifinals, leaving the hosts looking back to a shoddy tournament, in which they should have done much better.
