New Delhi: The Copa America saw some spicy action between Peru and Bolivia in a fight for a place in the quarter-finals on Tuesday.

Moreno opened the scoring for Bolivia in the 25th minute with a superb lob, but just 10 mintues later new Chelsea recruit Claudio Pizzaro level with a header.

Peru were stretched again as Bolton playmaker Campos smashed in from 10 yards to put Bolivia ahead 2-1.

CELEBRATIONS: Peru's Paolo Guerrero celebrates after his teammate Claudio Pizarro scored against Bolivia.

But Pizarro, again, headed in a second to end Bolivia's participation in the tournament and take Peru to the last eight.

With Bolivia knocked out, both Venezuela and Uruguay were through to the last eight from Group A.

With little to play for, both teams made little effort to score any goals.

Venezuela did take a few strikes at goal through Juan Arangio, but nothing much in that for the referee to blow the whistle, except the final whistle.
