Chile edges Peru to top Group C at Copa America

Chile has secured top spot in Group C in the Copa America by defeating Peru 1-0 via Andre Carrilll's own goal two minutes into second-half stoppage time on Tuesday.
The goal resulted from a corner as the ball deflected off substitute Carrillo and went into the open net.
Chile ended with seven points and avoided host Argentina in the quarterfinals. Peru is second with four points but it may drop to third if Uruguay defeats Mexico later Tuesday.
Both teams had already secured a spot in the next round and rested several regular starters at the Estadio Malvinas Argentinas.
The teams were reduced to 10 men from the 62nd when Chile's Jean Beausejour and Peru's Giancarlo Carmona were ejected for an altercation.
