First it was Argentina, now Brazil has been eliminated from a surprising Copa America tournament.
Brazil lost to Paraguay on penalties in the quarterfinals on Sunday meaning the tournament will finish without South America’s two most important national teams.
Host Argentina was knocked out on Saturday after losing to Uruguay, also in a penalty shootout.
The semi-finals will pit Uruguay against Peru and Paraguay against Venezuela, which advanced to the semifinals for the first time in its history by beating Chile 2-1.
There will be a new South American champion for the first time in at least 16 years.
Uruguay won the 1995 tournament at home, and since then Brazil won four titles and Colombia one — at home in 2001.
The Copa America winner will earn a spot in the 2013 Confederations Cup in Brazil.
